Fresh Picks... Day 3!

Today's Flourishes' Fresh Pick is one that is actually a very popular one! Did you know this flower is the fifth most popular fresh cut flower right behind roses, tulips, carnations and mums? This year, it was also one of the hottest focal flowers for weddings. After we saw it on polymer, we knew we loved the idea of making this flower a forever with Flourishes!

Introducing....


This beauty is another one hand drawn by Marcella Hawley. I swear, we should dub this lady a flower girl - because every type of petal she draws turns into pure magic! We love the fact that this stunning floral comes in many, many shades - hot pink, coral, light pink, deep purple, bright yellow, shades of gold and even lavender. We'll have your markers and pencils going crazy! And, guess what? This set will be live in the store FRIDAY NIGHT-- yes.. tonight right after the release party! The party starts at 9 Central right HERE on the Flourishes forum over on Splitcoast! If you click on the link... the chatter is already underway! :-)

When you make the rounds to the design team, you'll see a full rainbow of colors - each just as beautiful as the last!
