Brown Paper Design - Berkeley

Sometimes inspiration derives from the most familiar places. Danielle Rowe, the founder of Brown Paper Design, attributes her company’s name to her childhood when her mother taught her to draw on brown paper bags. Now in its tenth year of business, Brown Paper Design crafts everything from innovative tablescapes to dramatic hanging installations.

Emblem Flowers - Pasadena

If you dream of wearing a black wedding dress or a purple veil (or both), trust the floral expertise of Emblem Flower’s owner Charmain Chen. With a background in international client management and a passion for all things colorful, her creations masterfully balance luxe and whimsy.
