15 Instagram accounts to follow if you love flowers

15 Instagram accounts to follow if you love flowers;

#1 Our own Instagram for Florists
Gatheringplace of the most beautifull designs all over the world. Most stunning creations exposed as#FlorAmazing by the biggest florist community here on FB. 

#JoFlowers: I love this feed for all of its romantic, moody and cascading arrangements. Jo is based in England and often posts photos from her own backyard that are just as impressive as any arrangement.

Not only does she know her way around a dramatic arrangement, but she travels to some of the most beautiful places and installs not just flowers, but trees, centerpieces and other plants that give me such great ideas for my own home. Amy has a beautiful way with photography, too, so she’s definitely one to follow.

#Saipua: I feel strongly that Sarah Ryhanen’s floral business is responsible for an entire generation of new florists we see working in a more organic style now. Working in the tradition of florists like Constance Spry and the Madderlakes, Sarah lit the fire for so many people who’ve gone on to open their own businesses. I love Sarah’s feed not just for its flowers, but for its peek inside the daily life of Sarah and Eric, who bought and now operate a farm in upstate New York that is home to some beautiful animals and fresh flowers.

#MaryLennox (Ruby Barber): I discovered Mary Lennox through Sarah at Saipua and have loved watching her work evolve online. The vibrant pinks and yellows in her feed always leave me wanting more and make me want to spend more time photographing the delicate underside of petals.

#StudioChoo: The incredibly talented, West Coast-based Studio Choo team are also former D*S team members and they’ve gone on to do such amazing things. From watching their book come together to getting glimpses of their flower buying trips, the Studio Choo feed is one of my favorite places to look for finished arrangement and centerpiece ideas.

#EuphoricFlowers: I’ve noticed that floral designers in the UK seem to have a distinct aesthetic of their own, very different from the looseness we see a lot of in the Netherlands right now. But there’s a place for every look and a beauty in every style, and this feed is no exception. I love the lush archways Euphoric Flowers posts – they make me wish I suddenly lived in a castle with roses growing up every wall.

#TulipinaDesign: Kiana Underwood’s feed (and business) is based in San Francisco and her photos ooze that sort of upbeat, sunny, super-colorful California charm.

#LizzyMcGinn: Lizzy collaborates with Cathy Haebe of kneadtomake and I love seeing the way she combines lush florals with baked goods. How could that ever go wrong?

#Fairynuffflowers: Another UK feed – this is one of my go-to stops for GIANT close-ups of flowers. If you love a close-up shot of a peony as much as I do (they’re full of so many petals!), this is one to check out.

#VictoryBlooms: This Marietta, Georgia-based floral studio is run by Megan Dunlap. She’s regularly featured on some of the top wedding blogs and what I love most is that she posts some pretty stunning flowers that aren’t too wedding-centric. She’s shared some truly elegant photos of wisteria, dogwood and vines that feel wonderfully moody and romantic.

#Floradelphia: Dan Fingerhut’s feed is upbeat, fun and full of colorful arrangements. He plays around with some fun and inventive vases and vessels and it’s always a blast to see what he’s up to.

#PrettyStreets: Kristen posts several flower shots a day that are simple and slightly wistful. I never mind that when it comes to beautiful, drapey arrangements, they make me long for days spent inside with buckets of flowers to arrange.

#MoonCanyon: Kristen Cassie’s feed focuses on plants and gardens along with flowers. I love her floral headdresses, ombre-themed arrangements and the way she focuses on vines and flowering plants as much as cut flowers.

#NicoletteCamille: My love for Nicolette Camille’s flower arrangements has been well documented. She is the queen of a romantic bouquet. I love the way she captures interiors, too. Her feed is a great guide to romantic spaces for weddings and special events.

#FlowersofVisalia: This feed isn’t a floral shop, but is dedicated to GORGEOUS flower photos taken in Visalia, California and neighboring Central California cities. I am constantly liking every picture in this feed and re-gramming them to sing their praises
