Foraged Flora | Kelsey’s Botanical Guide

 

Each of our Elsie Green team members has a hidden talent.  Kelsey's is floral design.  She effortlessly puts together pretty, loose and organic arrangements around the shop, and always knows which botanicals dry gracefully, and which are best to put up high in the shop because they're low maintenance.  She's created a simple, botanical guide by season that we swear by when choosing greens and botanicals at the flower market or foraging around the shop.
