Production for summer subscriptions comes right on the heels of Mother’s Day, so we feel like we’ve been making flowers nonstop pretty much forever at this point. BUT it was totally worth it because we are so pleased with how the summer “Year of Flowers” bouquets turned out! Now that these summer lovelies have shipped, we feel like we can officially begin enjoying summertime…
As a mother-daughter team, the Mother’s Day “season” is always extra special for us! This year we named each bouquet in our Mother’s Day collection after inspiring women who represent and rock motherhood in different ways.
The bouquet recipes used blooms from our Signature Collection and our Seasonal Collection of additional spring/summer blooms for 2019. Because we’re still making these flowers (at least until fall), we thought we’d do a recap post of the Mother’s Day Collection with each bouquet recipe. This way, you can still purchase these special bouquets simply by using our “Build a Bouquet” listing options!
In addition, we wanted a place where their stories could live on, so we hope you’ll find some extra meaning in reaching about the women who inspired each of these bouquets.
We have been lucky enough to meet so many awesome makers, artists, and flower people at various shows and markets we’ve attended over the years. Add to that the creatives we’ve “met” through Instagram and online, and we have quite a list of makers we admire.
As flower-lovers and appreciators of handmade work, we think you’ll be pretty jazzed about them too.
Often called the roses of spring, ranunculus flowers are a crowd favorite! With layers upon layer of petals, these darlings are both delicate and showy. If ranunculus blooms were people, we imagine they’d be the elegant, charming type who gracious and hospitable — they throw the best dinner parties and make it look effortless. We are excited to share more about their characteristics and symbolic meanings as this month’s featured bloom in our “Language of Flowers” series!
