Describe your style in 3 words.
Feminine, Rustic, Effortless
We love seeing the gorgeous floral arrangements you create, and have even shared them on our blog before! What are a few of your favorite flowers?
Delicate looking flowers are most often my favorite. Peonies are at the top of the list, closely followed by my newest favorite the Café Au Lait Dahlias. They are literally the size of a dinner plate and the most gorgeous pale pink color. I got these tubers for Christmas and I can't wait to grow my own this year!
What do you love most about being a Ruchette?
All of the inspiration it brings! The lookbooks are always so gorgeous and they give me endless ideas for my own outfit photos. Oh! And gorgeous clothes.
You currently reside in Washington. How has your wardrobe changed since moving into winter?
I find myself gravitating to darker colors and definitely more layers.
What can we find you doing when you aren't blogging?
When I'm not blogging, you can find me looking at endless photos of bouquets and arrangements, reading flower blogs like Floret, Field to Vase and Philosophy Flowers and planning my own adventure in the floral community. Big plans coming for 2015!
Do you have any New Year's resolutions?
Arrange flowers for at least 2 more weddings than I did last year and make the huge leap to starting my own business. 2014 was a learning year for me and I feel that 2015 is going to be about putting all of the things I learned into action.
Does your personal style influence your floral arranging style?
Absolutely! I love to wear lots of layers and love textures so my arrangements have lots of different elements in them. Foliage, berries, seedpods, all sorts of different florals and even edibles (green beans and tomatoes on the vine are perfect to add in centerpieces!). It adds interest and every time you look at it you find something new.
Our motto here at Ruche is #LiveBeautifully. How do you live beautifully?
I live beautifully by never letting the small stuff get me down. You’ll never know what you might miss when you’re in a funk over the little things.
Chambray or tulle? Don’t make me choose! Can I say both?
A glass of wine or bottle of craft beer? A glass of wine
Beach or mountains? Mountains! No question.
Hot cocoa or hot coffee? Hot Cocoa!
Phone, keys, wallet, and..... Chapstick!
We can't wait to see more from this adventurous lady in 2015. Have a wonderful January, Ruchettes!
