Shout Out – Keepsake Blossoms

Handcrafted Clay Flowers

As you know, my husband and I renewed our vows a couple months back. Prior to the wedding, I was scrambling to find the right bouquet and boutonniere since there were restrictions on having real flowers on a cruise ship wedding. I vaguely remember hearing about clay flowers from a friend of mine back in college but after doing a serious search online, I decided these were the perfect way to go: artificial, realistic, beautiful, lasting, strong, and the list goes on. I contacted an Etsy seller but she was already completely booked, which made me panic. If she couldn’t do it, what were the chances of getting it done at all? But she referred me to Keepsake Blossoms and I was (still am) more than pleased with the results.

Deb, who is behind the breathtaking creations, is one of the sweetest people you could work with. She’ll make sure you get what you want and her portfolio is full of beautiful shots of her works. I’m pretty sure I annoyed her with my endless list of questions in the beginning but she answered them all in such a short amount of time. I think I learned a thing or two about being a helpful seller. πŸ˜‰ During the preparation, I was starting to get very stressed and got pretty sick. But when I opened the box of beautiful flowers (I ordered a few more boutonnieres and a couple corsages) I was shaking with excitement. I literally teared up with relief and actually started looking forward to the wedding. ;P You should definitely check out her flickr page and blog which showcases all her crafts and even publications she’s been featured in.
