I bet flowers are not the first thing you think of when it comes to Christmas and holiday decor (except for the classic poinsettia) but JL Designs will make you think again. JL Designs is a couture Floral and Event Styling firm out of Orange County, California. One visit to their blog, and Carissa (JL Designs' Owner) will have you daydreaming about flowers, lace, sparkling broaches, and all things glamorous and sweet. Take for example, her arrangements for this Urban Glam photo shoot. They are fashion-forward, sleek, and the bouquet of black mini calla lilies is to die for. If you take a peek, you will see she used feathers as a collar around the lilies. Feathers are an emerging (and gorgeous!) new wedding trend.
Carissa recently launched a new line of sustainable, botanical pieces that are perfect for the holidays! Each piece possesses a little something special- from her use of bark to create tubed vases, to her petite arrangements wrapped in thick lace with sparkling appliques. They're just dreamy! There are a variety of sizes and shapes to choose from and any of them would make a great gift or centerpiece for your holiday party. The designs are also a great jumping off point for wedding inspiration. Carissa's Cedar + Birch + Bark arrangement reminds me so much of this wintry, forest wedding invitation.
Thanks to Carissa for sharing your new designs with Fab*Blog! For all of you out there, it's not too late to throw a holiday party! If you already have one planned, tell me in a comment below: how are you decorating for your holiday shin dig?
