From shears to ribbon to vases, there is one place I am a diehard for and that is Amazon! I go local as much as I can, but with all the flower + supply shortage, me and everyone are truly just trying to keep up with demand and supplies for ourselves!
I know it seems super overwhelming, and it is if you don’t know what to look for! For all my at-home florists, here’s a quick list of things I love + always have in the studio!
- garden shears – YES!! You need – I promise it will be an upgrade from your kitchen scissors. I prefer shears with springs in them. To me, these are so much easer to work with and do not get stuck as often. SUCH A GAME CHANGER!
- bud vases – if you have been here for a while, you know I am OBSESSED with bud vases. Fun fact, I started Bloom + Stem designing with just bud vases! An easy way to get started in your blooming adventures! Get yourself a set or two – they will transform your space.
- everyday vases – maybe you do, maybe you don’t but either way, find yourself a vase you LOVE. I have one that is perfect for big ol’ blooms and it resides in my living room. I use it weekly and it makes me so happy! Find yourself one that you love designing with, it will make all the difference in the energy of the blooms and your room!
Start with the basics and go from there! AND REMEMBER, there are no rules for flower arrangements – make it fun!
