The Flowers Speak for Themselves

There are many elements that work together within floral design and an extremely important aspect is the actual product being used. At EFC, we are constantly on the hunt for blooms and greens that intrigue and communicate. We sense the personalities of various products and intuitively choose one over another to fit a specific mood or occasion. Often times we even become emotionally attached to our product, feeling sad when the "head" of the flower accidentally snaps off or loses all its petals (we aren't crazy, it's fine). 

So out of our (obsessive?) love for our craft and our clients, we have begun assembling a look-book of product that we can use as a resource for designs. So here, I wanted to provide you with a sneak peek of a few little guys that would be featured. I also added some more details about each shining star for all you flower fan-girls (and guys!) out there including defining characteristics and traditional meanings.
