We return to our Floral Love series with a bang — with versatile and pretty succulents. It would have been easy to incorporate succulent centerpieces, boutonnieres, favors, etc. into one post, but we found so much inspiration in just the bouquets that we had to make it a two-parter. It’s no wonder that succulents are a popular choice of florals in California. According to MarthaStewart.com, succulents are “plants that store their water in their stems, leaves, and roots, causing their ‘succulence.’ Succulents have evolved in the desert and need direct sunlight.” Succulents are easy going, too. You need only to water them every 10 days to 2 weeks, they require minimal fertilization, and are easy and sturdy to work with. Enjoy the post!

We’re welcoming spring weather and weddings with open arms! But not before giving winter a grand sendoff. So long to pine trees and snowflakes, winter white and cozy fires, hot cocoa and pinecones. Enjoy this last wintery inspiration. ♥ Photo Credits: 1 Athena Pelton (via) 2 & 4 Nine Photography (via) 3 & 6 Emily Delamater (via) 5 Joel Bedford / Stationery from Wedding Paper Divas (via). 7 Bayly & Moore / Flowers by Yuga Flora (via) 8 (Via) 9 Marianne Wilson (via) 10 (Via) 11 Via Amy Atlas 12 Jennifer Eileen (via).
We love the way that brides are incorporating lavender into their weddings. Lavender, part of the mint family, is native to the Mediterranean region. It has been used for over 2,500 years, and is particularly known for its calming properties. From rustic to chic, lavender can satisfy any event’s theme. This lovely flowering plant will always lend a certain prettiness to an occasion, which is surely why it has become a popular choice among brides.

Flowers – we love them! To kick off a series of floral-focused posts, we give you a collection of rose images. From bouquets and centerpieces to out-of-this-world arrangements and cupcakes, we hope to have rose inspiration for your wedding or spring soiree covered. Now the fun facts rundown of America’s favorite flower: 100: number of species of roses. 1,000: age of the oldest rose in the world, located in Germany. 60: % of US-grown roses that are grown in California The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin rosa. A rose’s blooms are edible. Rose hips (the fruits of the rose plant) contain more Vitamin C than any other fruit or vegetable. Again, enjoy the images!
