Mixed Bag

A few fun floral things as we head into the weekend…

1. The Bella Project founded by Paula Pritchard of Paisley Petals:

“Tonight, I was in the studio all by myself with just the hum of the cooler in the background.  I was tucking lisianthus into this weekend’s bridal bouquet when it hit me: I know what I can do to add beauty to the world, get creative with leftover blooms, AND get my studio cleaned up in a timely manner!  So tonight, I’m introducing The Bella Project.  Here is the basic premise: When I have leftover blooms, I will use them to design an arrangement and then put out a notice on Facebook.  Comment on the Facebook post with your idea to use the bouquet to encourage someone who needs a dose of beauty in their life.  A winner will be chosen at random to come pick up the bouquet and use it to bless someone who needs it.  I am so excited to share one of the greatest joys of my life with you- the feeling of seeing someone’s face light up when you deliver them a beautiful bouquet!  Trust me, you will be hooked! Be sure to follow us on Facebook so you don’t miss our first Bella Project bouquet!” – Paula

Paula is hoping other floral designers will get in on The Bella Project and take the concept to their own towns across the globe. Thanks for sharing your vision with the BB readers, Paula! (Images courtesy of Love Song Photo)
