Popping into my favorite shop


I'm gearing up for my second pop-in at House of Floralie this Saturday, and it occurred to me that I never posted a recap of the first event we did together, or really, how it even came about! So what better time than now? I love this shop with all my heart, so if you can make it to the event this weekend, this will give you a little idea of what you can expect. (You know, minus the Easter flair!)

House of Floralie
+ Paper Rose Co.
Pre-Fall Pop-In

Saturday, September 9th

Event Details  | RSVP via Facebook

In the spring, I was tipped off about a new store that had opened near my favorite places in town (Stella's & Stella's Grocery—obviously). This new shop promised stationery goods, French flavor, and their name automatically had my attention—House of Floralie. So one afternoon after a meeting (which I may or may not have purposely scheduled nearby), I stopped in to check things out. It did not disappoint!

Within minutes of my arrival, I had already introduced myself to Bobby and KK, told them about my paper flower venture, and suggested we collaborate somehow (meaning I'm pretty sure I invited myself to do a pop-up). Luckily they didn't find my "enthusiasm" offensive, we bonded over our mutual love of stationery products, and by the end of the day, we had set a date for our first event! 

Scores from my first visit—the basket I carry to every market (and always get asked about), a vintage bud vase, floral MT washi tape, notepads by  Snow & Graham , the perfect peony candle by  Linnea's Lights , an RVA pennant by  Oxford Pennant , and a House of Floralie's signature gift box!

If you couldn't make that pop-in—which took place the Saturday before Easter—here's what you missed. I created a few unique centerpieces—including a bunny and a chick—which are still two of my favorites (I wonder what they're up to?). I also made some special purple-hued blooms in celebration of House of Floralie's prominent branding. 

My favorite thing about popping into HOF is that I get to borrow their gorgeous vintage fern stand. It's the perfect height for my flower buckets, and I feel so official wrapping up bouquets from behind it. Like a real flower shop—I absolutely adore it!  

And what could be better than spending the afternoon in a place like this? Surrounded by books, gourmet treats, stationery, candles—basically everything I love to buy for gifts (or when I feel like I deserve a gift), all in one quaint, locally-owned storefront. Perfection.

This Saturday I'll be back for another pop-in, and I'm bringing a fresh crop of autumn-hued roses, new blooms from my fall collection, and other fun accents for a fun day of DIY bouquets.

Plus I know I can't wait to see what new things are in store this week from House of Floralie too! It is almost time to start thinking about the holidays—right?
