When I came across Anna’s beautiful bouquets I was so impressed that she incorporated handmade flowers that looked so realistic into her bouquets. Come to find out that they are ALL handmade… and well, my mind was pretty much blown! Geek Chic Floral Boutique combines sola wood & recycled paper to create eco-friendly floral arrangements ranging from weddings to home decor. The best part about their products? The floral arrangement will last a lifetime and each creation is custom made for you.
The gift shop, located in Avon, NY has a large variety of fun & unique gifts for everybody in your life. All items in the gift shop are made by over 15 local artisans and small businesses. Products range from home decor, jewelry, bath and body products, candles, coffee mugs & tumblers, as well as coffee & loose leaf tea.
Anna uses a special wood to create some of the flowers. That must be why they look so incredible and life like! I asked her to tell us a little bit about the process.
“Sola flowers are made from soft balsa wood. In their natural state, they are a ivory/cream color but I can dye them any color you would like. Even though the flowers are made from wood, they are actually quite soft and natural looking. Since each flower is handmade no two flowers are exactly the same and natural variation will occur. That variation is what makes each flower so unique and beautiful. With the right care these flowers will last a lifetime (please keep away from open flame, do not allow prolonged contact with liquids, and keep these delicate items looking beautiful with careful handling.)”
