Pinterest = Unlimited Inspiration

If a wedding is in your near future, you have hopefully given some (or a lot) of thought to your wedding flowers! Many of our customers draw inspiration from images they have seen in print media and online - especially on sites like Pinterest. If you are already on Pinterest, fantastic! If not let us make a brief attempt to explain to you what you might be missing out on:

Pinterest is a site of images - lots and lots of images! The site is an accumulation of user-generated content on just about everything including arts, crafts, home decor, cars, clothes, style and WEDDINGS! Thousands upon thousands of images are available online with the click of a button with fresh immagery uploaded daily. Along with images are often descriptions and even 'how-to' instructions on how to achieve the bouquet/arrangement pictured.

Their search functionality is fantastic and really allows you to whittle down your search to exactly what you are looking for. As an example, 'green boutonniere' yields hundreds of images of green boutonnieres!

When you find something you like - you don't print it out, but rather 'pin it' to a 'board' that you create. Think of it as a filing cabinet. You create the file folders (boards) with nice, pretty labels and then drop (pin) the images into the corresponding file folders (boards). You can create as many files as you want and can make them private or public. Having trouble visualising this? Consider creating the following files (boards) to start with and then start pinning:

- Bridal Bouquet

- Bridesmaid Bouquet

- Boutonnieres & Corsages

- Flowers for Wedding Venue

- Centerpieces

 

Be forewarned, Pinterest is highly addictive and rediculously fun! We do our best to keep the creative juices flowing on our company Pinterest page. If you happen upon Pinterest, be sure to follow our inspirational leads online at : http://www.pinterest.com/growersbox/.
