Our Favorite Holiday Gifts and Creations

Well, it’s safe to say that November 2020 was the fastest month on record. We blinked, roasted a turkey, and somehow landed squarely in the holiday crazy.

This time of year is our favorite, and despite being covered from head to toe in glitter and hot glue, we love every second. We’re counting down some of our favorite holiday gifts and creations that are easy and available for same day delivery. (Read: also great for last minute gifting!)



Wreaths Whether you love faux or natural, we’ve got gorgeous holiday wreath options available in studio. All are customizable and are beautifully complemented by our holiday ribbons.



Plants A beautiful botanical gift! From amaryllis to paperwhites to holiday orchids, we’ve got you covered. Each is beautifully dressed with moss, cones, and birch branches in a ceramic pot.





Arrangements Our beautiful signature designs with a holiday twist! This year we’re offering beautiful wintery whites, berry tones, and a winter citrus scheme.



Workshops For DIYers, we just released our 2021 virtual workshop schedule. It’s a lovely gift!



Subscriptions Not just for magazines! We offer floral subscriptions for weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly service. There’s no minimum duration, so you pick the number of deliveries.



Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season!
