tree love

What a gorgeous day today. A found heart leaf at night and the tree from whence it came, by day.

Saipua Arrangements

Saipua bouquet

I was kicking myself when I realized I forgot to put any flower arrangements on my Valentines Day guide. But then I realized there isn’t really any acceptable places to buy flowers that are only one click away. I could not, in good conscience, send anyone to 800 flowers or similar chain place.  I mean, don’t get me wrong. I love a big bunch of roses as much as the next girl but stray into one of their more “creative” bouquets and you could end up with an icky carnation in the mix. Not the case with one of my favorite local flower shops Saipua. I should mention when I say “favorite,” I have never bought or received flowers from this place, but they are featured on Design Sponge quite a bit and I like to ogle their blog. So, Brooklyn-based boyfriends take note, get thee to Red Hook, and give a bunch of posies that show off how original and artsy you truly are. Nary a cursed carnation in sight!
