With my very first pin, I fell hard for Pinterest. Almost instantly it surpassed Facebook as my number one way to gaze away half the day.
A virtual pinboard that allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web, Pinterest is what I do when I have a few spare moments or hours — like when I want to see something pretty in the world on a Saturday morning or need to procrastinate a work project, say, right now.
You see, I should be ordering flowers for our Flower Sessions get-together at my house on Saturday June 23, 2012. But I can’t decide between blue and purple blooms with splashes of bright green, or deep magentas, violets and fuchsia tones. So while I’m stuck between both palettes, I visit Pinterest to see pretty photos of flowers.
If, like me, you’re also stuck on pinning, feel free to follow Eat Boutique on Pinterest where we pin photos of recipes, inspiration for our events, entertaining ideas and gorgeous food photography. You can also follow me directly as well where you can dig into my love of barns, gift-wrapping, my travel wishes and the sorts of things that inspire me.
And if you’re just perusing the flowers on Pinterest isn’t enough, there’s still time to buy a ticket for our Flower Sessions on June 23, 2012 and see some actual blooms. During our two hours together, Lise and I will demonstrate several ways to design flowers for dinner parties, hostess gifts or just every day. I’ll serve tiny homemade snacks and drinks too. Grab a ticket now and I would be so grateful if you told your friends, too.
By the way, which flower palette would you like to see used at our Flower Sessions?
