La La Laurie at BHLDN !

For quite some time I've been keeping a little secret under my hat,  and now I can officially share it with you.

The past couple of months I've been working like mad creating bouquets and boutonnieres that are now available at BHLDN!!!

I love their dreamy wedding world and I was so honored when they asked me if I would be interested in working with them.

For those of you not familiar with BHLDN, they are an off-shoot of Anthropologie.  It's your one-stop,  bohemian, vintage-inspired wedding shop.  If you haven't seen their website before, I encourage you to pay it a visit and get lost in it for awhile.  It's pretty fabulous.

To fill their order, I had to make masses of paper and fabric flowers. I started off in my craft room cutting piles of petals, but soon the project started spilling out into the dining room, guest bedroom, and eventually the kitchen.  We were living in a field of faux flowers.

I assembled the flowers one style at a time, and as I completed each bloom, I stuck the stem into a styrofoam board to keep them vertical and safe.  Our dining room table looked like a parade float.





After all the elements were made,  I picked my blooms from the boards, and the bouquets were assembled.  


The bouquets were based on a sample piece I made for an issue Seattle Metropolitan Bride and Groom Magazine, so if it looks familiar, you probably saw it in the magazine, or in this post.

Once the bouquets were completed, the boutonnieres were made, then packaged.


 Finally, everything was tagged, boxed-up and sent off to BHLDN.



And today, their winter collection has gone live.

I am so excited to have my bouquets and boutonnieres right up there with the many lovely pieces in their collection. It's a thrill, to say the least.

Funny thing. I was on their site a few days ago and spotted your flowers right away. My knee jerk reaction was "those *uckers they copied Laurie" I may have even said it out loud :) then I took a closer look and saw it was actually you and cheered!!! This is so awesome!
