It’s always nice to stretch your wings every now and again and see what’s going on beyond your immediate environment. That’s how Sharon’s family vacation abroad quickly turned into a European buying trip as well as an overall design study. She’s excited to return with some new products as well as floral and container concepts. She says that the lavender in Provence, France was particularly inspiring and we hope to use it in volumes upon her return. Here are some pictures of it as well as a French floral market. Enjoy your trip Sharon and know that your designers are eagerly awaiting the fruits of your trip.
