Sunday Bouquet: Neon Pink Tinged Roses On Flokati

Pink Roses From The Bouqs On Flokati Rug

The Bouqs, a new online flower delivery service, delivered this bouquet of bright, crisp roses (gratis) via FedEx, right to my doorstep.

Based in Venice, California, The Bouqs  offers a 40 pretty floral bouquets with cute names like Happy Harvest, Tiki Torches, and Thick As Thieves. And they’re all $40 or $50. Try finding another online flower delivery service (especially ones that don’t specialize in tacky red carnations) for that price.

The Bouqs works exclusively with farms that are independently certified by agencies such as Veriflora and The Rainforest Alliance as being sustainable and eco-friendly. And its Happiness Guarantee means if the flowers arrive late or last less than three days, they’ll send out another bouquet.

The quality of these flowers from The Bouqs was definitely superior to other online flower delivery services I’ve tried. They weren’t all wilted when I removed them from the cardboard box, and they’re still looking lovely four days later. The downside is that you have to plan ahead, as the lead time can be a week or more, depending on the collection. Also, since they’re shipped rather than hand delivered from a local florist, there’s no vase.

My roses, which came with purple statice that I separated out and arranged with local floral and fauna found down by the pool (shh!), are from the Desperado bouquet.

Sunday Bouquet: Pine Cone Bouquet

This type of pinecone bouquet ornament is also sometimes called a pinecone kissing ball, though I have no idea why. It’s a popular DIY project. Apparently you just glue pinecones to a styrofoam ball and splatter with some white paint.

Sunday Bouquet: Succulents in Cylinder Vases

Place Pots of Succulents In Cylinder Vases

Photo via Remodelista 

The carrots are pretty, as are the lemons and limes, but those are not the arrangements of the day.

Look high up at the open kitchen shelving in this sleek, gray contemporary kitchen is designed by San Francisco-based interior designer Nicole Hollis. Normally, this is where one might store empty vases, which is what is happening here—with a twist.

These homeowners are displaying succulents in clear glass cylinder vases. I love layering plants and flowers and other natural elements in clear vessels, which I learned from Boston stylist Kara Butterfield (you can read my post about her styling tricks here).

Sunday Bouquet: Fall Foliage for The Kinfolk Table

fall-table-sunday supper

Last year, Sunday Suppers hosted a dinner to celebrate the launch of Kinfolk Magazine’s new cookbook The Kinfolk Table. They hung leaves from the ceiling for an autumnal atmosphere. The meal was served family style on a rustic wood table with benches using ceramic dishes by Frances Palmer (you can find a few of her pieces here).
