Dear Flower Friends,
We are beyond thrilled to share with you this second annual print edition of Flirty Fleurs! It has been such a privilege to put this issue together for you and we’ve loved every minute of it. Come along as we head to Detroit with Debra Prinzing, who introduces us to the amazing Flower House project; wander down south to Virginia to visit the ladies of Southern Blooms; jet over to Belgium to chat with Fleuropean; and explore the flowers of Paris with photographer Georgianna Lane. Incredible industry veterans Nancy Liu Chin, Alison Ellis, and Steve Moore inspire us with their straight talk and sage business advice. And we get to meet a few of an event designer’s best friends: Silk & Willow, Casa de Perrin, and La Tavola Linen. We couldn’t possibly call this issue complete without featuring a few of our favorite weddings and events from California, Mississippi, and Cabo San Lucas, and, of course, some of our favorite bridal bouquets! And if you’re anything like us, you’ll laugh out loud at the stories in Just For Laughs. So pour yourself a a cup of coffee or tea and settle in to spend some time with the amazing designs and designers in this issue. As always, we hope you’re inspired by the incredible work you see here, including our beautiful cover design by the one and only Janet Martineau of Floral Verde.
