Working Designer Wednesday

I’m finding it harder and harder to keep these Wednesday posts to a reasonable length! So many things I want to share with you…

1. An upside down idea from Flowers by Bornay…check it out here.


2. Poppies & Posies creates a beautiful fall table arrangement on Design Sponge…see it here.

poppies and posies 16dahlia-500x333

3. Eddie Zaratsian recently released his first book, Custom Florals and Lifestyle, and was kind enough to send over some photos (taken by Marianne Lozano) from the Launch Party! Marianne is the photographer behind the images in Eddie’s book…
