Flower Power

If you've ever met me, you'd know that I wanna do ALL OF THE THINGS. I collect hobbies - EVERY hobby. And I recently decided that I'd love to get into floral designing; thanks to the expert tutelage of Siren Floral Co, Plenty of Petals, and Soil and Stem I've had the opportunity to start floralizing the right way. These women are literally some of the best in the business and I am so lucky to call them all friends.

Solo attempt 1...I used flowers from Cactus and Tropicals and Trader Joes. All foraged greenery.

Solo attempt 2...I used flowers from Whole Foods. All foraged greenery.

Solo attempt 3...this was done in Nicole's home studio (Soil and Stem) at her spring floral potluck. It was so much fun; she basically invited a bunch of friends over, each person brought flowers/greens/vessels, and we enjoyed great company and food while floral arranging. Most of my flowers are from Whole Foods and trimmed from Nicole's yard. All foraged greenery.

Party Your Face Off

You know your frands are coming up in the world when they now boast their very own studio/warehouse space. The Romantik Studio is located in Carlsbad, CA and is co-owned by Rachael at Siren Floral Co and Kasia at Plenty of Petals. I'm not even ashamed to admit they got this place in order faster than it takes me to do a week's worth of laundry (many thank you's to Nathan and Garrett for their countless hours too). They had an opening party/fundraiser for The Hendrix's - who are going through a heartbreaking fight with a rare form of cancer. All donations went straight to the family.

The most delicious tapas and libations were courtesy of A Miho Experience and beautiful glassware always from Hostess Haven. Here are a few photos from their opening event. Rico over at Amigo Booth brought the party vibes for sure - and I mixed some of their stellar shots in for good measure.

**DISCLAIMER: I was pretty not sober when I was taking the bulk of these so never you mind the quality. Just know they reflect what a wonderful time I had. :)
