Last month, I introduced you to my friend, Natalie Bowen Brookshire—a talented floral designer with her own San Francisco-based studio, Natalie Bowen Designs. I’m excited to announce that Natalie is going to contributing some posts here—first, with a series of floral design tips that will be relevant to you whether you’re choosing flowers for your wedding or simply for dinner; and second, with a travel series based on all the incredible places she gets to visit for weddings and events—it will be wonderful inspiration for anyone planning a destination wedding. I’m constantly looking to her Instagram feed for inspiration: she often extends her work trips, and ends up in the most beautiful places.
So today Natalie is starting things off with some answers to the flower-design questions she gets most often: “Where do I start? And how do I gather inspiration when I feel completely overwhelmed by my choices?”
