Crafted in Carhartt

I have been prepping for a workshop at the Soho House and a wedding at Salvage One this weekend and hadn't looked at my computer until just a few minutes ago. I am so happy that I stopped because my brother pointed out that the Carhartt feature had posted. 

Have mercy!
Nothing better then showing someone the local flowers at the Green City Market and then sharing an afternoon showing some tips for arranging them. 

That's exactly what I did with Jennifer from Crafted in Carhartt. I am so honored to be one of the many extremely talented women that Jennifer has profiled on this blog.

Now back to prepping and shlepping.

Chatting about Weddings

Here comes the bride and about a years worth of organizing, stress and planning. Weddings can be fun to plan, but they are also a lot of work. I sat down with Kristin Larson from Bridentity Crisis a few weeks back and talked about everything flowers when it comes to planning a wedding.

Kelsey + Mike

I have known Mike about as long as I have known Seth. He is one of the sweetest guy's I have known and a few weekends back he married one of the sweetest ladies I know.
Congratulations you two and thank you so much for letting Foxglove be apart of your big day!

Sadie + Brandon: Logan Square

Such a cute couple and I love that they got married on a Wednesday. Perfect Chicago style wedding that took place at Logan Monument and then headed to Lula Cafe for some food. With about 30 people in attendance, I say this is a fantastic way to have a smaller wedding.

Inspiration: Call Me Cupcake

I am kind of obsessing over Linda.

I never thought I would pull a lot of inspiration and fluttering heart beats from sweets and treats, but you can definitely call me a cupcake fan now.

Linda is an amazing maker but also stylist. The colors, mediums, and textures that she uses in her work is poetic and creates images that need no words.

I came across her blog while doing some research for an upcoming event that Foxglove is apart of which involves the traditional Swedish Midsummer dinner. I really need to spend some time in Sweden. (Sage Reed I am looking at you!) So much beauty comes out of that part of the world.

Just look.
