Framed Florals’ Favorite Botanical Inspired Bridesmaid Gifts
Are your bridesmaids, lady friends, moms and moms-in-laws flower lovers? Okay, who isn’t? When it comes to gifting and gift receiving I’m first of all heading to the area floral shop.
But when you’re thanking the women in your life for the wedding prep and support they’ve given it’s likely time for you to find a gift that’s ever-lasting, and that's why we consulted with Lacie Porta – the floral preservation maven behind Framed Florals – for the best botanical inspired gifts you can purchase.
We’ve gushed a little in the past about Lacie’s incredible service but we can’t help but try it again, pressing and framing your bouquet inside a stylish and modern fashion, Framed Florals perserves your precious wedding bouquet forever! (Getting teary eyed just considering it.) We asked Lacie several q’s about her favorite flowers (peony lovers unite!) and she’s gifted us with quite the lavish and creative bridesmaid gift-giving advice.
What are the favorite flowers for framing or simply for admiring?
All the flowers! My favorite flowers will always be evolving, right now I’m loving giant fluffy pink peonies. Peony season is always this type of short and special time, I’m sad it’s over! Ranunculus really are a standby favorite. Thistle really are a house favorite, I love how they dry out during my vases during my apartment. My favorites to press are astrantia simply because they retain their color so nicely and press so perfectly!
Did you gift anything special to the women in your life for your own personel wedding?
The morning of my wedding I gifted my bridesmaids dainty gold necklaces. I picked them from Vera Meat in Williamsburg. On the thin gold chain was one teeny tiny skeleton key. They all wore them in the wedding, and I loved how it inside a way symbolized that they are all a vital part of me. I bought one for myself too, because I’m definitely a vital part of them as well! Wearing it reminds me of these, and my big day.
Do you've any favorite shops in New York for fabulous gifts?
So many favorites! Home from the Brave which are more gorgeous and unique homewares. Upstate Stock for those New York made goods and a lot of gifts for that boys during my life! Marche Maman where there’s always a brand new and interesting vendor, plenty of gorgeous french brands, and also the most interesting and pretty wares. Catbird when I’m within the mood to gift myself something fabulous!
