12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide

Not sure what to get your sister in law? Or maybe your office mate is impossible to shop for? Here's the gift guide for every difficult to shop for person on your list.

2017 Wedding Trends

Latest Trends In Wedding Flowers Are you lost in planning a 2017 wedding, sinking deeper into the hole of ripping pages from wedding magazines and artfully curating specific pinterest sub categories? Are you unsure how to tell your mom you don’t want her to make your wedding bouquet out of the flowers she is growing in her windowsill? Did you know that you’re supposed to be blissfully happy while engaged instead of watching clumps of your own hair fall out in the shower and wondering how you got so stressed? Yes, this is another wedding blog.

We may not be psychics, but we can look into the future of trends for the year and leave you feeling prepared to feel beautiful on your special day.

However, in 2017 succulents are blossoming (ha) from rustic hay bale wedding to textured, cool tone, woodsy-chic.

Succulents can be safely anchored in handheld bouquets, boutonnieres, crowns, and centerpieces.   The Modern Cascade Most people associate [...]
