We Love: Flutter Magazine

flutter issue 8 fashion to table
We’ve fallen in love with Flutter Magazine, a quarterly publication of “Wedding & Lifestyle Inspiration to Make Your Heart Skip a Beat.” The new issue (# 8) features a gorgeous shoot with Lauren Conrad and her bridesmaid designs from Paper Crown.

A yearly subscription to Flutter is the perfect gift for a bride-to-be. But don’t stop there; anyone on your list who loves fashion and entertaining will appreciate exquisitely on-trend details, shoppable editorials and DIY projects.

Check out behind the scenes photos from the issue launch party on Lauren’s blog, and subscribe to Flutter here.

We Love: Instax Mini 8 in Pink

Instax Mini Pink

Our new intern brought her cute, instant camera to the studio and took these shots of phalaenopsis orchids. Days later, we spotted one at flower class. This is the latest version of Fuji’s candy-colored Instax Mini. Simple to use, with a pop-out lens and included strap, it’s the perfect gift for a flower girl. I’m going to pick one up to surprise my four-year old daughter. She loves taking pictures (and posing!). Maybe this will reduce her obsession with my iPhone… too much to hope?

We Love: Kaleidoscopic OP Vase

Kaleidascopic Flower Vase by OP

A single flower becomes a bouquet, when placed in an OP vase by Bilge Nur Saltik. Thick, blown glass is precision-cut by hand to create a kaleidoscopic effect that multiplies a flower’s reflection. Fascinating and unique, the OP vase would be a memorable gift for a maid-of-honor, new sister-in-law, or anyone who loves to look at flowers.

Available online at Design Boom.

We Love: Pressed Flower Phone Cases

One of our brides-to-be came in with this unique floral iPhone case and we had to know where she found it. Handmade in San Rafael, California, the clear cases are sold by HouseofBlings on Etsy. Each case contains hand-selected, natural, dried flowers and petals, and can be ordered for a variety of Apple and Samsung phones. How cute would these be as bridesmaid gifts? Choose cases that coordinate with your wedding-flower colors for a sweet keepsake your girls will love.

Solar Ring from Van Cleef & Arpels

Solar ring

From Van Cleef & Arpels’ new Peau d’Âne collection, the exquisite Solar Ring is crafted in yellow gold, and features a 16ct cushion-cut yellow sapphire, surrounded by smaller sapphires and diamonds.

The jewels in this collection tell the story of classic French fairy tale, Peau d’Âne, which was made into a 1970 film starring Catherine Deneuve. Radiant with the golden light of the sun, this ring is part of the Happy Marriage chapter of the tale told in gems, and would make an extraordinary anniversary gift. See more here.
