About Wood Flowers
All of our wood flowers are handmade from sola (or shola) wood, which is a woody shrub that grows in tropical regions around the world. Each flower is made by women who live in these areas, mainly India and Thailand. Using wood flowers not only creates a beautiful keepsake for you but provides jobs with fair wages and safe working conditions for women in these areas.
Flowers are actually soft to the touch and flexible, similar to cork and not unlike live flowers. In their natural colors they are ivory and brown (from the outside bark.) Some have light wood grain and brown flecks, giving your flowers a beautiful and rustic look. Because of variations in wood grain and being made by hand, every flower is truly unique in shape and size, just like real flowers. Brides often share that their guests couldn't believe their flowers weren't live flowers! I also love seeing the unique ways brides display their flowers in their home and enjoy them for years to come.
With dozens of flower designs, brides can easily incorporate their favorite blooms, regardless of the season. Almost any flower can be represented in sola wood!
About April, Owner & Designer
I love helping brides create the perfect bouquets that reflect their styles and personalities. Because wood flowers aren’t limited by season or colors, each piece can perfectly fit your vision for your beautiful wedding day.
Rustic elegance is a phrase often used to describe the pieces I make. I love mixing colors and textures to make pieces you can cherish for years to come!
When I’m not making arrangements, you’ll find me hiking, running, laughing with my two kiddos, or enjoying a (rare) quiet moment with my husband and marveling at the fact we get to live and work in the incredible Grand Teton National Park.
