Flowers, Shopping & Wine

I love love love to arrange flowers!I can't think of anything that is more calming than working with such beautiful things to create something to enjoy for your home Working with our floral designer for our wedding was definitely one of my favorite bridal experiences along with a brief summer gig working on a Preston Bailey event which taught me everything I needed to know about sewing Orchids. So you can imagine my excitement when my friend Amelia invited me to join her at an event that included shopping, wine, cheese and flower arranging - total bliss. Oh and the best part is the fee for the evening went to a charity very close to my heart - double win!

The affair took place at the lovely North End boutique Acquire. This cozy boutique was filled with so many wonderful decor items for the home or office I couldn't stop snapping away. I was blow away with the beautiful styling of the store which really shouldn't be a surprise since the owner Nikki is a super talented interior designer. Some of my favorite items in the store are featured below. 

I would love to decorate an office for my husband with the globe & those industrial lamps. Also, do you recognize that orange feather art from The Glitter Guide feature of Colour-Bloc?

Those little gold raw edge dishes made the prettiest art display. I would love this mixed in with a gallery wall. 
My absolute favorite item in the store would have come home with me if I had space in our apartment. I always tell myself to buy things as I love them for a future home but it's so hard when you don't know what that space will look like. I still think I could find a lovely spot for this beauty in our home. 
The floral design portion of the evening was hosted by the darling Kor Floral. This talented designer taught us tricks of the trade and provided us with the proper floral tools and lots of beautiful loose blooms to create our own masterpiece to take home in a Acquire vintage vase. 
My Creation
As we were leaving he fun evening, we were given some extra flowers which I took home & created an additional arrangement for my bedside table. 

Thank you Acquire & Kor Floral for hosting such a lovely evening!
