Coordinated bridal bouquet and boutonniere by Rosenow Floral.
Kids, for some reason your Uncle finds it difficult not to think of San Francisco when I'm here reading Victoria's musings. I don't know why? I just do. Strange...isn't it? ;) And I can't think of San Francisco without thinking of a Bay Area favorite of mine...Rosenow Floral Design. Erin Rosenow (I know! The name is perfect...and real!) creates some of the most exquisite arrangements (and James will testify to that) and the luscious photos on her site are drool-worthy for sure. I always pop in to see what visual treats she may have in store.
Now Erin has expanded her repertoire to include a line of most-inspired boutonnieres. And not the typical "When is homecoming?" or "Dude...nice flowers." variety. Just look at the man-tastic offerings that she has devised! These are sweet enough to appeal to the ladies but spirited enough to help us boys feel a little less "flowery" on those special occasions, should we so choose. Y'know...if we get to choose. ;) (I'm just teasin' ya', Ladies!)
And it's hard to talk bouquets and boutonnieres without thinking of special occasion stationery. And I relish the mix of classic design and contemporary color palettes that San Francisco-based Gryphon Stationers pulls together. I know I'd have a horrific time trying to decide which palette to pick! But it would seem that if I could procure the floral artistry of Rosenow with the stationery stylings of Gryphon I'd have a match made in heaven. Oh yes...and a happy couple I think they would make, indeed.
"The black, I'll take the black. Oooh, no! Wait! The purple! Oh...but the grey is so nice! Crap!"
