Florals: Styled Shoot

This past weekend we had a bridal bouquet styled shoot for a fun update to our design portfolio!

We knew we wanted one bouquet to have a super eclectic, rustic feel. We added burgundy peonies, white stock and mini calla lilies entangled in a super leafy greenery. It was absolutely breathtaking!

For the second bouquet we styled we wanted it to have super bright and vibrant colors that really popped! For this bouquet we used bright orange tulips, pink mini calla lilies, fushia roses and chartreuse green chrysanthemums. We found the perfect farm backdrop that made the colors all that more gorgeous…

Spread a thin amount of our Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce onto one of the sourdough slices. Pile on turkey slices, top with baby swiss cheese and add the second slice of sourdough. Spray bread slices with cooking spray. Add to grill or panini maker. Wait until the cheese is gooey and the bread is toasted!

Simple and delicious! Pour yourself a glass of your favorite Vino and enjoy (we have become fond of drinking our wine out of a standard mason jar!).

Fragrance of The Month: November

One of our favorite things about our Fairfax & King Collection by Found Goods Market is the down home rustic feel it gives you, exactly the same cozy feeling you get with the fall holiday. These candles are an all natural soy blend wax  that is highly fragranced with florals, fruits, greens and spices. We chose our Monticello Pomegrante fragrance because its airy and sweet with the essence of pomegranate, lemongrass, rose and tart grapefruit! (YUM!) Totally perfect for Thanksgiving (Hello, hostess gift?! – We think so).  

Overview Of NOV FOM

Our Monticello Pomegranate fragrance is available in our Recycled Glass Reed Diffuser, Boxed Tumbler, Soap Bar (with Shea Butter) + 3-Wick Bowl.

Our Fairfax & King Collection draws its inspiration from the nation’s oldest apothecary. These recycled glass vessels are finished off with a wax seal and tastefully packaged in natural materials A.K.A they’re eco-friendly! The candles and diffuser are PERFECT for any room in the house i.e bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and we love using the soap in the kitchen and bathroom for hands or use it in the shower for your whole body!
