Yesterday Evan and I headed to Philadelphia for the day with our daughters Abby and Hannah. Our first stop was Sullivan Owen’s flower shop. Sullivan is a designer I follow via twitter. With a few quick tweets I had an invite to Sullivan’s shop. Wow, wow, wow, her studio is awesome.

Seeing all of her milk glass, copper pots, mercury, glass and vintage bottles made me feel right at home.

I adored this vintage cabinet that held her specialty ribbon.

Sullivan’s studio space is clean, fresh, and inspiring. I would have happily spent the whole day talking with Sullivan. It’s very clear to me that this young lady is on fire and I simply LOVE her designs. It was interesting to find out that she trained and studied design at the Flower School of NY. Lucky for me, I will be taking my first classes at the Flower School next week. I am very excited about getting to know Sullivan and I think it’s going to be incredible to watch her grow. I have a feeling that the world will be seeing a lot of Sullivan Owen.

After having a really fun lunch experience at the Reading Terminal Market, we headed to the Philadelphia Flower and Garden Show. This particular garden show is the largest and oldest flower show in the world. There were demonstrations, gardens, and floral designs that were created and displayed as individual pieces of art.

I loved this display and I so wish I could have purchase this desk.

Beautiful table designed by Sullivan Owen.

This table also caught my eye, the detail was amazing!!

While at the designers studio I watched Eric Schellack of Robertsons Flowers create this unique anthurium bouquet.

I was obsessed with the copper pots, plants, and linens, that were offered at the show.

The wall of lettuce was one of my favorite exhibts at the show.

Seeing this poster made me giddy!!! Insert me into the tulip fields of Holland!!!! Just one more month and I will be there!!!

Loved this display.

There was even a wedding at the garden show last night!! You know how I love weddings.

Complete with a cake from the Cake Boss.

These were the centerpieces for the wedding.

It was a super fun and long day. Now it’s seriously back to work, I have designs to create, clients to meet, contracts to write, and 40 gift bags to stuff. I have quite a bit to do before I leave for NYC this Sunday.
