This is the first-ever post of The Treasured Petal blog, and boy, does it feel great to be writing this! My name is Kristin Brancaleone, owner and head designer of The Treasured Petal florist, wife to Joe, mother of two fur children (Pesto, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and Basil, a darling Boston Terrier pup), and lover of all things floral, girly, whimsical, sassy, and wedding related!
I’ve been a bit nervous to dive into the blog world, despite the helpful encouragement from colleagues and clients. There are so many blogs that I adore and stalk every single day, and I knew that if I were to start a blog, I wanted it to be colorful, inspiring, informative, and most of all consistent. I knew this would be a big commitment!
Having said all that, I am officially ready to get this going! This blog will be…
1. my online gallery, showcasing T-Petals fabulous weddings as they come, and I have to say this year’s weddings will be total showstoppers! We’ve got a sweet lemon yellow soiree in the works, an over the top wine and chartreuse tropical wedding coming, a shabby chic sherbert and sage wedding, and a classy beachside affair to name just a few. I hope to give you a peek into the design process of each wedding, from the florist’s perspective!
2. my sketchbook, to share any decor ideas and inspiration that strikes my fancy.
3. my show and tell, to highlight some of my favorite flowers and botanical elements in all their God-created glory.
4. my brag book, to show off cute pictures of my dogs. 🙂 hehe
On that note, I think I’ll tackle # 4 right now and just get it out of the way! (Pictures compliments of my talented hubby, Joe)

My father in law is currently doing an oil painting of this picture so we can hang it on the mantle!
Thank you for visiting! Please stop by real soon, as I have so much to say about Jill and Harry’s geometrical wedding, and Veronica and Paul Jae’s bookish garden wedding!
