Style Me Pretty California Welcomes Our Advertisers!
July 23, 2011
It feels like just yesterday that we launched our fresh crop of local blogs!  It has been a marvelous few months traveling around the great state of California. We've met some fabulous advertisers along the way and we are thrilled to share a few of them with you today. It is my great pleasure to introduce to you some of the newest members of our Style Me Pretty California family!

Fleur de France

From Fleurs de France... We provides fabulous & exquisite custom floral design, for weddings and special events in the Sonoma & Napa Valley of Northern California specializing in destination weddings.  Fleurs de France is honored to be included on some of the most prestigious preferred vendor lists of many of the Wine Country Wineries & Wedding Sites in the Sonoma & Napa Valley, including Auberge du Soleil, The Calistoga Ranch, Viansa Winery, Trentadue Wineries, and many other locations.  We also specialize in Destination Weddings in the Northern California Wine Country, working with couples worldwide. We work closely with each of the sites and all your other vendors, ensuring your day is flawlessly executed, seemless and perfect, even better than you imagined.  Whether your event is intimate or a lavish soiree, modern or whimsical, or you desire sophisticated elegance, formal, romantic or a more natural garden look, Fleurs de France will bring your vision to fruition. Your wedding or event will be magical and perfect.  I started Fleurs de France more than 27 years ago. I work from my home studio, nestled on a few tranquil acres in Sonoma county, surrounded by vineyards, forest, and wildlife, the perfect place for a creative soul. You will find me very down to earth, fun & easy to work with, but very detail orientated and extremely dedicated to giving you the most personalized service and stress free experience from start to finish. This is about you and your day!

Lisa Leonard

From Lisa Leonard... I have been making jewelry since high school but I decided to get serious after my first son, David, was born.  I wanted to start a small business that would enable me to quit my job and stay home with my boys. At the time, I had never taken any formal classes or received special training in jewelry making. I just went for it!   I am kind of the 'jump in and learn as you go' type.  creating jewelry not only allowed me to work from home, but has connected me with so many amazing women along the way.  My desire is to create simple, lovely pieces that can be worn with jeans or your little black dress.  I want each piece to be meaningful.  Our custom jewelry is hand-stamped with your kids’ names or a special phrase or verse.  I love to touch my necklace throughout the day and reflect on my husband and my sweet boys.  Each piece we create is a work of art—hand cut, hammered, polished, drilled and assembled with care. I am inspired by other artists--painters, scrapbookers, clothing designers and poets.  I also love to soak up nature-the sky, the sea, the green hills.  I let all these ideas and images swirl around in my mind and then I create.  When an idea hits me I sketch it out and play until the perfect design comes together.

Up Up Creative I

From Up Up Creative... We an independent design studio and print shop based in Rochester, NY. We (and by "we" I usually mean me, Julie Green, owner and creative director, plus various interns, assistants, and hopefully sometime soon an employee or two) specialize in eco-friendly paper goods (from irreverent greeting cards to beautiful, modern wedding invitation suites). Basically, my goal is to make people happy by providing them just the thing they always wanted or saying just the thing they wish they could say. Also, I really like to make my clients' lives easier. They'll confirm this. My work is clean but colorful; simple but with a sense of humor; bold but still understated. I'm crazy for typography, unexpected color palettes, hand-illustrated pattern designs, and white space. I love working with clients so if you're in need of a custom design (for your wedding, your event, your business, etc.), I'm your girl. My designs and products have been featured in major media outlets including BRIDES magazine, Eco-Beautiful Weddings, DesignMom, Etsy's Storque, Decor8, The Happiness Project, Paper Crave, Apartment Therapy, and Gifted Magazine. Folks in the paper industry may also have seen me and my work featured in various trade publications, including Giftware News, Stationery Trends, and Stationery Today.
