Oh, girls… I am down in Florida right now having a personal creative retreat and it’s been soooo good. I can’t wait to sort through my pages of notes and share it all (or a lot of it) with you. But for today, I’m featuring one of my fellow creative business owners…
I’ve followed Courtney from The French Country Cottage for years. I’ve always admired her romantic, yet unfussy style. Every time I read one of her blog posts or see a frame on her Instagram, I think, “Flowers must follow that girl everywhere she goes.”
And now, Courtney has designed a faux floral line presented by Balsam Hill. The pieces she designed for the line are so pretty and so “her”. Very romantic and elegant.
I hung the Marseille Meadow wreath on the hutch in my dining room and stood back to admire it.
It was a stark contrast from the foot of snow sitting on my lawn. I actually thought, “Well, this is a nice way to make it feel like spring!” Spring is still weeks away here in Minnesota, but we are getting some days in the 40s and the snow is starting to melt.
I also love the Brittany Rose arrangement. Courtney really nailed it with the combination of colors, textures, blooms, and greens.
I’m planning to put it in my guest room to add a bit of life! It’s too dark in that room (which is in the basement) to have a live plant, so this is a great alternative.
I also selected some of their hydrangea flower stems. I’m hoping to plant a bunch of hydrangea bushes this fall, but it’ll be a few years before I get a bunch of blooms to fill vases through the summer.
They paid so much attention to detail when they made these…from the shape of the leaves to the pink tips of the green petals to the stems that have had “leaves” trimmed off.
I always enjoy seeing the success of talented, hard-working creative entrepreneurs and it’s an honor to showcase Courtney’s line from Balsam Hill.
You can see her designs in some other bloggers homes…
Disclosure: I received complimentary faux florals in order to promote them for this blog post. I did not receive any additional compensation. It’s a pleasure to support my friend in this business endeavor. All words and opinions are honest and my own.
