Ribbon Ring was another favorite from CHA. How do you organize your ribbons? I have mine hanging from a few circle rings in my craft room and a long, straightened coat hanger with my spools. These crafty girls invented a ribbon organization system so your ribbons are easily accessible and organized. Love it! As much as I love their product, I’m just in love with their art! Check out these amazing goodies, cakes and sweets made all of RIBBON. Pretty impressive!

Love these beautiful flowers! They were so pretty I just had to snap a photo!
I discovered the wonderful world of flowers when I got married a little over a year ago. My mom’s good friend, Lori, helped with all of our flower arrangements. She was amazing and everything turned out so beautiful. One of my favorite wedding-related festivities was going to the giant flower warehouse to pick out flowers with my mom and Lori. There were so many different kinds – all bright and fun. Since then, I’ll occassionally stop by the warehouse and spoil myself with some beautiful flowers. For those of you in San Diego, the shop is open to the public off Morena Blvd. and has really great prices. I stopped by before Easter and bought several bright gerber daisy bouquets to brighten up the day. Love it! Maybe I will be a florist in my next adventure!
Ohhh – and another nifty secret about this floral warehouse… they sell ribbon by the spool (sometimes 25, 50 or 100 yards) for incredible prices! I just bought ribbon for my sister’s bridal shower invitations and couldn’t resist to purchase some fun, sparkly purple ribbon for my personal ribbon stash!
