A Nautical Tabletop design by G&G

I was asked to provide a tabletop design for a special event this summer in SF, and I love anything even slightly sailor themed, so I decided to include some nautical feeling to the design.  The linen is a new rental from Napa Valley Linens, a cut out navy blue fabric that I felt like really goes well with the white and greens in the flowers.

G&G on College!

Hello! It's been a fun few months here at the new boutique, and as we settle into the new location, I have gotten back into blogging.  I'd like to just share a few pics from the new location of Gorgeous and Green at 2946 College Ave in Berkeley's Elmwood.  In case you haven't been there yet, we are smack dab in between Ici Ice Cream and Summer Kitchen, so come by for some unique local gifts/plant/flower bouquets and grab a snack at our neighbor's. Here's our locally hand-painted sign:
