We were recently interviewed by the folks over at Surface Magazine to be featured in their Project Spotlight to share a bit more about the intimacy of our process and how we relate to our work, our environment, and our clients accompanied by amazing photos from Collin Morrow on a perfect October day.
Venn Floral is hiring an assistant! This is a seasonal position beginning immediately, and will go through the end of November. We are a small, two-woman owned business with a serious dedication to teamwork, authenticity, and creativity seeking a positive person with a can-do attitude to assist us with floral deliveries, installations, strikes, and general studio maintenance.
Read on for the full job description and application instructions.
Spring is doing it's thing, and we couldn't be more excited to see what great flowers and foliage are in store for us this year. We treasure the slower pace of life that winter beckons, but without fail the promise of sunshine and little sprouts makes the vernal transition so welcome.
In preparation of the new season, we are assessing what plants survived the winter, which seeds in our collections need planting, and looking for new and exciting changes to our gardens and those around us. Each season and each year our gardens are diversifying, maturing, and offering us a unique advantage in our line of work. Bridging the gap between garden and floral design, and minimizing the carbon footprint of each stem and blossom is hugely important to our business. We love being able to emphasize the beauty and bounty of our area, and in the end just enjoy any excuse to be outside with our hands in the dirt. Read on for a glimpse into the home gardens of Camille and Heather, and see what they have planned for the year...
We're excited to announce that you can now get our flowers on the regular. Hooray! Signups for our 2018 seasonal bouquet subscription program are now open, right here, right now. Read on for all the details and the specifics on signing up...
A new year, and so much to be thankful for. We had an amazing 2017 and are looking forward to all that is to come this new year. Venn Floral is going on 4 years! WHAT?! We have so much to reflect on and be thankful for and, as always, are welcoming the calm of Winter to refresh, and set new intentions for ourselves and our business for the year to come. Winter is also prime time for going through ALLLLLL our photos from the year to relive the past season's beauty and find inspiration for those to come. Take a peek to see some of our favorite photographs from the year... so far :)
What a party! We're happy to have been a part of the team that put on The Knot Rocks at The Pearl in San Francisco. It's always an adventure working at a new venue, and it's even better when it's as dialed in as The Pearl. Set on the corner of 3rd & 19th Streets in the Dogpatch, with a rooftop lounge overlooking the San Francisco Bay and the historical brick buildings of the neighborhood, there was no shortage of inspiration. Drawing from the industrial architecture and design of The Pearl, we designed a palette inspired by our surroundings of clean lines and lofty heights, elegantly exposed brick, iron, wood, and cement.
We've been enjoying some seriously stormy weather in Northern California, and have been taking advantage of hunkering down in our cozy homes and studio for the past couple of weeks. After the whirlwind holiday months and festivities, we welcome January's quiet spirit with open arms. Winter is our time to press the reset button, gather our thoughts and create intentions for the new year and seasons to come. We're feeling the beauty this month has to offer.
We're over the moon to share this Coastal Woodland Wedding inspiration with you on Green Wedding Shoes . It has been a dream of ours for quite some time (okay, let's be honest...forever.) to be published on their site, and are so happy to have worked with an insanely talented group of vendors on this styled shoot in early Spring. Head over and check it out on Green Wedding Shoes . Full gallery here, as well.

Yay! We're stoked to share that we are contributors on the Field to Vase Blog, and that our first post, on personal cutting gardens, went live today. Head over to their site to read our post, as well as so many other informative and inspiring pieces written by growers and designers from around the country. Field to Vase is an amazing resource and we hope to continue their mission of inspiring and advocating for the local flower movement. Now, how about them personal cutting gardens?!
What a year! 2015 has been full of flowers, surprises, learning experiences... and learning curves, amazing people, and celebrations big and small. Reflecting on the past 12 months, and looking forward to our next journey around the sun, we are full of gratitude, hopes, dreams, plans, and big questions.
Our first Valentine’s day as Venn Floral was a success! And so much fun.
Thanks to Thistle Meats in Petaluma for hosting #VennForMyValentine and for all the support. We admire Thistle for supporting local farmers and ranchers that use only sustainable and ethical practices for a beautiful product from start to finish. We too strive to showcase the bounty that Sonoma County has to offer in a responsible and beautiful way, and have nothing but praise for anyone who does the same.
Thank you to everyone who came out, we hope your Valentine’s day was a hoot! Until next time…
