15 Instagram Florists to Follow
If you, like many people, don’t get much time to stop and smell the roses we have just the right remedy for your flower deficiency (in addition to a Green Fresh Florals hand-tied bouquet). We spent some time clicking on Instagram recently to create a curated selection of accounts with a focus on flowers that we think are worthy of your spare time and attention. For plant and flower admirers, Instagram has become a fount of beauty and inspiration with a whole host of florists, floral designers, and photographers showcasing their creative adventures helping them establish unique identities across the platform. Like us, they love all things flower related so enjoy this selection.
The Viewing Pleasure Is All Ours
From floral designs that range from the simple to complex, and bold to subdued, if you include yourself among us flower lovers, follow these 15 accounts to get your daily Instagram floral fix.
Polka dots, stripes, bold prints and denim dungarees serve as the backdrops for the sweet burlap-bound bouquets from Little Flowers. Each pictured bunch of blooms showcases the beauty of a simple handful, available for same day floral delivery. This account seems to jive perfectly with the uncomplicated nature of the everyday flower buyer. I can picture any of these bundles adorning my nana’s gingham-curtained breakfast nook with quotidian charm.
Perhaps the secret to stellar bridal wear is that no marriage is quite as stunning as flowers and lace, and Utah florist, Lilly and Iris, officiated this duo’s big day. As you thumb through their gallery, you’ll find a bevy of brides displaying an intoxicating mix of delicate lace and bold, beefy blossoms. Who says the flowers can’t wear the pants in this relationship?
Roberta Santilli | @opi.illi
Roberta Santilli’s flower creations are crackin’ at opi.illi as she makes quite clear with her use of cracked eggs to display a host of colorful buds. Whether she’s showcasing her inspired mixed bouquets or grips of tulips, her consistent, clever use of bold striping is the tie that binds both the flowers and the brand. The addition of everything from macrame to kale leaves makes her home and garden gallery a visual treat, and the oft-used #freshflowerhappyhour is on point.
Junes Blooms | @junesblooms
An account that flaunts the barefaced beauty of all things flower is Junes Blooms. Featured in the NY Times style magazine, the subjects of Erika Stephens’ photographic gems are outlined right in her Insta bio: soil, seed, and bloom. Her mono-floral bouquets are just as in-charge as her mixed ones. Her work is a pure visual treat. Even Iron Man is getting in on this flower action.
Brier and Ivy’s account is like a warm chai latte in flower form. Maybe that sounds like an odd comparison, but take a scroll through their album, and you’ll start to see it: the classic whites and blushes infused with spicy maroons, magentas, and hot pinks. It’s elegant bouquets in the hands of elegant brides set against pines, rocky outcroppings, and foggy lakesides. And, if you’d rather elope than slowly sip your special day in, they’ll do the flowers.
Any good roundup of Instagram florists must include an ikebana artist because simplicity certainly deserves a space in any well-constructed feed of flowers. The ever-popular subdued creations of Kisetsu Kajin’s arrangements are the love child of whimsy and grace. Her account offers submissive, intentional design where flower and container shine in equal parts.
For a visually stimulating look at why floral patterns will never go out of fashion, take a look at the energizing work of Botanical California. Design Sponge previously showcased her work, and its experimental nature is so good, I thought it deserved a nod here as well. The backlit floral photos have a Dayglo feel that I liken to swimming in a candy dish. As a bonus, her pup, Arthur, makes a couple of cute cameos throughout her feed.
One thing that is instantly clear from the Seattle Wholesale Growers Market feed is just how much fun, flowers are. This co-op of flower farmers does a fantastic job of showing off both the backend of the business and the beauty of the blooms themselves. While their images often juxtapose the softness of flower petals against urban jungle backdrops that skilfully display the artistry of that combo, they prove that the best prop to flash around flowers is a genuine smile.
Straight out of the gate, Grace Alexander Flowers’ bio is as delightful as her floral aesthetic. A self-professed ‘seed monger and grower of happiness,’ her IG album showcases the little treasures that flowers are in a very ‘brown-paper packages tied up with string’ kind of way. Featuring pristine blooms on grey-scale backgrounds, who else could make a single nibbled-on anemone blossom look so rife with beauty?
Bright, bold colors, geometric patterns, pansies, and primroses don the charmingly whimsical floral imaginings of Vanilla Lemon Cake’s gallery. A divergence from many of the more traditional florists of Instagram, if you give her a follow, Jessica’s floral design will add a little ray of sunshine to your feed. She brings both a strong floral flat lay game and perhaps one of the cutest little scene-stealers around; her hamster, Oliver. Just look at him chilling in his bunting-bedecked airstream!
The best impulse point-of-sale purchase is a farmer’s market or street vendor bouquet of beauties, hands down. Blooms by Wildwood’s Instagram feed perfectly captures that curbside appeal with all those tempting colorful petals and shades of green wrapped in classic brown paper. They’ve even mastered that top-down, point-of-view perspective. A bundle of flowers beats a chocolate bar every time.
The life-sized bouquet wraps and boxes chockfull of decadent blooms would be enough to keep me coming back for more, but nearly every image of La Beaute Flower’s account is captivating and drawing me in. The whole display is muted and soft and snowy and as fluffy as flowers can get. Beg my pardon, please, but am I the only one having a ‘George Costanza ensconced in velvet’ kinda moment on this one?
A palette of eye-catching brights in a rainbow of colors is what you’ll get as you scroll through the album of popular London-based florist, Bloom and Burn. Luscious splaying arrangements rule the style of his floral designs for both bold tabletop centerpieces and voluptuous wedding bouquets. It also gives me a lot of satisfaction that he uses the #mensstyle tag on his photos because that feed sure can benefit from those flashy florals of his.
For a relaxed Boho vibe, check out the fine floral handiwork of up-and-comer, Pear Street Flowers. With divine headpieces and flower crowns, their floral wearables are sure to pique your curiosity. Also, they have a camouflaged tomcat photobombing a shoot of an incredible cascading bouquet. What more can you ask for?
Sometimes captions get it all too right – there is nothing like blue magnolias and a yellow bird! The album of New Zealand’s photographic floral artiste extraordinaire, Emma Bass, is an energy-filled, eclectic, almost-zany mix of flowers and birds and vases and babies. Featuring colors on steroids, her work is on the opposite end of the simple spectrum, yet is glamorous in that Antoni Gaudi-like way. A definite must-see and must-follow.
