Happy Monday Guys...hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend and thanks so much for stopping by the cafe.....today it's all about "bouquet style"....wedding season is here and it's in full bloom...my first wedding is in a few weeks and I'm so excited...I had the pleasure of designing my bride's bouquet for her last week for her portrait session, whenever I'm designing the bride's bouquet, I can't help but think of how the bouquet "fits" the bride's style.....there are times when I "get it" on the first design, but if you're like me, it takes a couple of tries before I get that feeling that lets me know, the bouquet is truly a reflection of my bride's style!  Let's check out a few beautiful bouquets from our "Meet the Designer" series and let me know if any of these lovelies are a reflection of your "bouquet style"....Enjoy...xoxo



Our first bouquet was designed by Oak & The Owl and captured by  Tonya Joy

Nancy Teasley of Oak & The Owl

Happy Monday Guys, thanks so much for stopping by the cafe and we are starting the week with our "Meet the Designer" series...say hello to the oh-so-beautiful and talented Nancy Teasley of Oak & The Owl!  I'm so excited to have Nancy join us today, her floral designs are ALWAYS so beautiful and I enjoy following her on INSTAGRAM to see what she's up to on a daily. Now get ready for some serious "floral love" as Nany shares a little bit of her world with us...Enjoy!!

From Nancy....."I mainly service all of Southern CA, from Santa Barbara to San Diego, but will happily travel anywhere for the right job. I love doing weddings in the Bay Area as my good friends are there, who are all designers and will sometimes work with me, and I get to have a little friend’s vacation while I’m working.  I’m also starting a new endeavor of a garden rose farm. I’ve started an IG account for it at @ellarosefarm. I haven’t taken the same care with the launch of this as I did with Oak & the Owl and I might regret it.

The reason I’ve been talking about it is because it’s such a long and drawn out process. If I kept it under wraps until I was ready to go to market, I’d be working for the next two years and not talking to anyone about it. So, if you want to watch the process of the land getting ready, the flowers going into the ground, and seeing our successes and failures, follow along. It should at least be fun, and those who want to do something similar can learn from what I’m currently learning every day."

Kirstie Deane of Ruby & The Wolf

Happy Tuesday Guys....and today the café is back with our "Meet the Designer" series....stopping by the cafe today is the oh-so-talented and beautiful Kirstie Deane of Ruby & The Wolf.  Kirstie's floral designs are simply STUNNING!  I adore her style and though I've never met her personally, I feel like we are "floral sisters"!  Kirstie made the leap in the floral industry in 2013...yup, can you believe that it's only been a year...she ROCKS!  Here's a little snippet from the lady behind all those beautiful floral designs.....

"I’ve dreamed of becoming a florist for many years but only made the leap last year (in 2013). Now, of course, I wish I’d done it years ago! I trained at the wonderful Tallulah Rose Flower School in Bath in the South West of England in May and launched Ruby & The Wolf in July so everything stills feels very new! I currently work from home – at our kitchen table. We are building our own house this year and we’re planning to build a workshop in the garden that will become Ruby & The Wolf HQ. I can’t wait!
 I’m based in Bristol in the South West of England and will travel throughout the South West, or further for the right event."

So, without further ado, let's check out Kirstie's fun interview and don't you just love her "selfie" image she sent over...so cool!!  Enjoy!!
