GIPSY in the PARLOUR
Tell us about your business.GIPSY in the PARLOUR IS LOCATED in Connecticut’s picturesque Litchfield County. The Mister & I garden on a farm-sized scale. Nothing makes me happier than to spend a day covered in dirt, under the sun! We grow roses, vegetables, herbs, dahlias, strawflowers & so much more! We've always had a few rows dedicated to strawflowers, but the summer of 2012 was the 1st year we dedicated an entire bed to them & with great success. THE PARLOUR'S STRAWFLOWERS ARE GROWN from seed, naturally without harmful pesticides. Each flower is harvested by hand & naturally air dried. MY DESIGNS ARE CLASSIC & minimalist. When building my wreaths I focus on a single color or plant to enhance its own natural beauty. This no-frills design pairs perfectly with all home decor styles from rustic cottage to city chic. WREATHS FROM GIPSY in the PARLOUR ARE READY FOR GIFT GIVING, directly from me to the recipient. My signature packaging includes kraft tissue paper lining tied with a green grosgrain bow.
