Working Designer Wednesday

Have you noticed these Wednesday posts get longer and longer? There’s always so much I want to share with you…just have to cut myself off at some point!

This week’s favorites…

1. Handmade soap wedding favors from The Little Flower Soap Company…owner Holly Rutt also creates beautiful floral designs at her design studio, Sweet Pea Floral Design

2. The California Cut Flower Commission is looking for a flower fanatic to attend the Rose Parade and share the experience across social media…


The trip includes a chance to witness and assist in the final decoration of the floats and receive a behind-the-scenes, red-carpet tour of a real California farm-to-float experience. The prize includes airfare, transportation, hotels and meals for the ultimate flower fanatic and a guest. Are you a flower fanatic? Hurry…the deadline is July 31st…Enter here

3. Habitat Horticulture…a firm that designs, installs and carefully maintains vertical gardens with the guiding principle that plants provide essential nourishment and vitality to our environment and the well-being of our communities. My favorite example of their work…
