Announcing our Valentine’s Day 2012 Collection


I am very excited about Valentine’s Day this year. It’s the first one that my daughter Vera is really excited about and it gives me an excuse to be creative with my business. Mostly, I’m excited about our 2012 Valentine’s Day Collection, “Love Notes”, and to share how I came up for the inspiration for it.

I have been spending the past few months redecorating and organizing my home studio. The biggest thorn in my side at the moment is all of the “stuff” that I acrue after events, especially vases. In all of the organizing I came across a can of chalkboard paint that was nearly full, and you might recall the resulting blog post. Well, since writing that blog I have been painting pretty much everything my daughter brings to me with it. She just loves writing with chalk, what can I say, she’s three. So last weekend it dawned on me that all of these clear glass vases might not match today’s wedding style, but there is still life in them. So I painted a couple up to see how the paint worked on the smooth glass, and it was perfect!

I love how the chalkboard gray makes the colors of the flowers stand out, and once the flowers are wilted and gone you can still use the containers as labled organizers! All of these arrangements feature my personal favorite flowers that are all free trade certified!

Pinwheel Wedding Inspiration and a Feature on One of Our Own!


Vera Green Associate Jenine Rivera and her sweetie Jeremy Christopher have been quite the popular couple this week. They have not only one but TWO posts featuring their wedding, and it hasn’t even happened yet! But of course I don’t know how any blog could resist posting about their music inspired engagement session by Jessica Lauren Photography.

Or their super cute Save the Dates from The Paper Closet

You can check out all their glory and the full engagement session on the Walks with Bella Blog.

And in honor of Jeremy and Jenine’s wedding that we are still in the process of planning I wanted to post a bit of inspiration that we’ve been feeling for her event to kick off the weekend.  I can’t wait for their wedding because not only is Jenine a dear friend, colleague, and awesome bride, but this super personalized event is sure to knock your socks off!

Have a safe and happy weekend from the Vera Green Team!
