Jamali Garden Supplies
"I order from these guys all the time. Their prices are so, so reasonable. I recently bought 10 vases from them (not kidding). Check out their website if you haven't already."
In addition to their lovely wood vases, these green pearl-like ceramic cylinders caught my eye along with all of the bamboo goodies (love the willow fence!). Their floral supplies are great (especially the rainbow oasis in lime green), and the oodles of beautiful ribbon that they carry - yum! This store makes me want to buy some fresh flowers at the farm nearby and put together an arrangement for my kitchen. Walking through the pages of this site certainly gave me a warm feeling. All the hours spent with my mother growing up, watching her arrange flowers and seeing the joy on her face when she completed something. I loved helping her collect flowers and shop for wire and oasis, the perfect ribbons, the best containers... It was so nice growing up with someone so in love with nature and design, merging the two into a passion that she still practices. I've always dreamt of opening a flower/design studio - fresh flowers and home decor. I'm not yet living in an area where I would want to tie myself to a brick and mortar business, at least not yet. Oh the thought of it. Sondi if you're reading this, remember our conversations in my barn as we flipped through design books? Wouldn't it be lovely?
Great tip, Maryam!
