When Life Hands You Lemons, Dress Them Up With Sunflowers!

There are a world of uses for lemons. These colorful citrus fruits lend themselves to sweet and savory dishes, but they also can be used to bump up your decor! What do we like to do with lemons? Pair them with Sun.Flowers, naturally! Thinly slice lemon wheels and line a clear vase with scattered rows. In the center, add a vibrant bouquet of Sun.Flowers. Add a little extra flare with twine around the center. And voila! You have a personalized arrangement that is sure to brighten any...
Flowers in Her Hair

Flowers in Her Hair

As Summer passes into Fall, there’s an undeniable energy in the air. It’s time for an update—a fresh take on life as we welcome the next year ahead. For Sun.Flowers this Autumn, we naturally look for a way to incorporate our sunny blooms into a look! We challenged fashion blogger Belles Vies to this hair-raising task, and the results were beautiful. With a little inspiration and a few tools, you can create your own Sunflower crowns! Growing up in the midwest meant attending the most gorgeous, abundant farmer’s markets all summer-long with my mother, as she stocked the house with seasonal produce and fresh, vibrant flowers. The end of Summer was always my favorite time of year because Sunflowers began populating the stands, their bright petals and contrasting centers mesmerizing and captivating my attention, and I found myself wanting to fill every corner of our home with them to bring sunshine into every room. When I traveled to France, my love was cemented upon discovering the expansive fields of Sunflowers growing in abundance during late summer in the countryside. I love that Sunflowers are beloved and enjoyed by people all over the world. I have a love for flower crowns bordering on an obsession,  and it turns out Sunflowers are an excellent choice for crowns! Their thick stems easily wrap all the way around the crown base, creating a sturdy foundation. The blooms naturally turn toward the sun and they have a perfect bend right at the base of the flower to allow the bloom to lay flush against your head. So go ahead and have your own love affair with...

October’s Style Star

Meet Gretchen. We’ve had our eye on this fashionista for quite some time. When it comes to style, she strikes the perfect balance—bringing a curated cool to life through meticulous details and layers—in a fun, playful way we’re all eager to imitate. With her unique design sensibilities in mind, we just had to partner with her on the very first Everyday Joy bouquet, our monthly arrangement designed by some of your favorite bloggers and tastemakers. Get to know the gal behind the L’Inspiration bouquet. Where do you live? Portland, Oregon Favorite thing in your house: Besides my dogs and husband… I love all of our plants. They bring life to a room and create interesting space [and clean air!] What is your guilty pleasure? Champagne and almond cake… in bed! But my daily guilty pleasure would be allowing the dogs to sleep in bed with us! What fictional character would you want as a best friend? Gah! Hard question. I’d love to be friends with Anais Nin [one of my favorite writers] but as far as fictional characters… I suppose Mary Poppins. Because she’s never not going to surprise you with some fresh, grand way of seeing the magic in the every day. Who wouldn’t want that? For first-time Portland-ers, what are the must-see sites, and best places to eat/shop? My favorite shops: Frances May Una Mercantile Table of Contents Stand Up Comedy Backtalk Bridge & Burn 811 Building (Six/Seven & Seven Sisters) Lille Palace My favorite food/drink spots: Maurice [brunch] Sweedeedee [brunch] Lauretta Jean’s [brunch] All-Way [lunch] Meat Cheese Bread [lunch] P’s & Q’s [lunch] Grain & Grissel [dinner] Ned Ludd...

A Season For Joy

A Season For Joy

Fall is upon us. It’s that time of year when changes abound. The kids head off to school, we kick off new projects, we watch as the leaves turn and begin to fall—recharge, reset. Another trip around the sun is complete. This wonderful time of change inspired our seasonal bouquet “Call of The Wild”. This unique bouquet feature’s Sun.Flower’s very own color-enhanced Copper Sunflowers introduced two years ago. This mix of natural wild greens comes to life with textural succulents plucked from the desert, eucalyptus from the valley, and a silver sage made for celebrating everyday moments. It reminds us of the people in our lives that make this planet keep spinning. Who could use a little bit of everyday joy in your life? Spread joy with the “Call of The Wild” bouquet by...
