New website, Valentines Birthday flowers and Flow-ga!

Check out www.kofloral.com! While the website is slightly under construction, this new abbreviated link (previously: www.kofloraldesigns.com) gets you quick information on my floral business, pictures to stare at, and new fun info....specifically, about FLOW-GA! 

FLOW-GA is my newer creation that combines the best of both of (of my) worlds: Flowers and Yoga!! I have hosted a few events where attendees are guided through an hour vinyasa yoga class, provided various light refreshments, then guided through a 45 minute instructional how-to make your own floral design! These events are sure to be a hit with your friends and family! I did one New Year's 2016 event at private residences for yoga then attendees created a New Years design (children even helped!). I see this as a perfect birthday party idea, an afternoon for friends to yoga, wine and unwind with flowers, or bridal parties to do yoga the day before the big day, then creating their own bouquets...the possibilities are endless!! Please contact me with your requests and ideas and let's book an event! Pricing starts at $45 per person for this 2-hour adventure, with discounts based on group size: kristin.osterloh@gmail.com!

Lastly, here are some pictures from a surprise 40th birthday party I provided designs for on Valentines day! It was fun, and the clients were very satisfied!! 

Speaking of Valentines Day, if you or someone you know got recently engaged, please contact me for a free consultation to discuss wedding flowers! I look forward to helping you bring your thoughts and ideas to life! (email above)

Twin Oaks House and Gardens Wedding

KO Floral Designs had the honor of doing flowers for my Bride at her wedding yesterday in North San Diego. The weather was gorgeous and the venue green, quaint and just gorgeous! Ashley's colors were plum, peach and cream, with soft greens, which you can see throughout the pictures I have included :)

The wedding flowers included lots of mason jars (24!) that doubled as aisle decor during ceremony, and reception decor as centerpieces :) KO Floral Designs also decorated the cake table with smaller jars and eucalyptus and the sign-in table with a larger jar of over-flowing delicate flowers (anemones, clematis, and freesia...to name a few :)). The stunning bridal bouquet (shown below) came together so well, and was flanked by 5 bridesmaid bouquets and 2 junior bridesmaid bouquets...plus flowers for the little flower girl who I had the pleasure of making the most precious head wreath for! :)

One of my favorite, if not the best part of my floral job is giving the bride her bouquet-- the Bride and her awesome entourage LOVED the flowers as I kept bringing more and more into the bridal suite. The OOOHHs and AHHHHs really filled the room when I pulled out the delicate flower head wreath for the cute 4 year old flower girl (shown below :)). 

The staff at Twin Oaks was super helpful and nice, just as the staff is at the "sister" venue Green Gables :) I look forward to doing more weddings at these venues in the future! Cheers to the New Year!

Bridal Bouquet, different views :)

Well Hello!

Its been too long I see since I've posted but with a new website underway (www.kofloral.com -- thanks to my love, getting his Masters degree in Computer Science ;)) and a new year (2016-- we are getting married!!) I figured I need to blog more!!

2015 was a fabulous floral year for weddings, and I also launched my first FLOW-GA event which combines yoga and flowers (my two jobs and loves) into one fabulous two-hour experience! A link will be on my new site with information on FLOW-GA! Email me for details: kristin.osterloh@gmail.com.

KO Floral Designs did our first wedding of the year this past Saturday! The sun came out for this January wedding of my friend and fellow-yoga teacher. The flowers were nude, blush and cream, plus some bright whites and jewels for this be-dazzled bride! Check out some pix! :

Diana, the gorgeous bride, made me blush with her amazing reviews:

"The flowers couldn't have been more perfect. I was obsessed with everything :) you have such an amazing talent. I will strongly recommend you to all my friends that are going to get married...You deserve to be the florist for EVERY wedding. You seriously made my day :))"

The next wedding is in less than two weeks-- two January weddings are rare for KO Floral Designs yet so exciting! I will be back to post more about that one, I promise!! :)
