Peonies... Gardenias... Orchids... Hydrangea... You could say we're flower obsessed! But I guess that's what happens when you get to work with fresh flowers every day!

She'll never want to take them off!

8. Cheers! Floral Infused Spirits
Celebrate your big day with your girls with some fun drinks! Of course some bubbly prosecco or champagne is fun to toast to while you get ready, but a craft bottle is a fun gift to your girls so they can enjoy it at a later time. Later, when they enjoy a cocktail with their gift, they can cheers to your wedding and remember all the fun! We are intrigued by this Botanical Vodka made by Pinky. Blended with rose petals and violets it sounds like a floral treat!
(1) Pinky Botanical Vodka, Pinky, $48
With peonies all the rage, everyone wants the gorgeous, lush flowers adorning their table. A quick scroll on instagram or a flip through any magazine could prove you that! But with only short availability, and the kind of price that comes with seasonality and demand, the gorgeous garden rose can save the day! Delightfully full & voluptuous in their own right, these blossoms can go "head to head" with with any peony I know! And one of the biggest perks is that they are readily accessible all year (Nevermind the fact that they have the most divine fragrance!).
So when you're looking for something lush and luxe for your next event or for your wedding, think garden rose! (Or if you're in the right season... hellooo, garden rose + peonies!)
On this day we would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to those who have served, to those who currently serve, and to those who will serve our country, especially to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Thank you for your service, to provide us the possibility to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
