Great Minds Think Alike – and appreciate the same GORGEOUS flowers!

The Hollywood Farmer’s Market is a colorful place.  With fruit and vegetable vendors, musicians and, well, Hollywood natives, there’s never a shortage of sights to see.  But this past weekend, one flower stall stopped me in my tracks.

Silverlake Farms' display at the Hollywood Farmer's Market

Silverlake Farms’ ranunculus alone were priceless, but then there were the anemones, and all sorts of other wildflowers so bright and colorful they looked good enough to eat.  Or at least good enough to randomly grab a bunch, tie it up in some ribbon, and send any high-end bride straight down the aisle.

But the best part came when I asked owner/urban farmer Tara Kolla if she sold wholesale.  She asked if I was in the industry, and I explained I worked for a floral design studio in Palm Springs.  “Oh yeah” she replied. “They were here last week.”  Apparently Greg and Al had been at the market during their pre-Oscar delivery,  and had the identical reaction to her deliciously beautiful flowers.  And when I talked to Greg, he told me they would be working out an arrangement to get their hands on some of Tara’s blooms.  “Weren’t those ranunculus amazing?” Greg asked.  Great minds think alike!

White ranunculus. Good enough to eat!

Grandma’s Advice That Shows (Or Doesn’t) on The Red Carpet

In terms of clothing, Grandmas across America have a lot of advice.  Among my favorites:

“Wear a lined bra so your nipples don’t show. You’ll look like a lady.”

“Never get rid of rhinestone jewelry, it always comes back into style.”

and the all-time classic,

“Be yourself.”

That last one was on display for all the world to see last night in Hollywood at the Academy Awards.  You can always tell who feels comfortable in their gown, and who got talked into a dress she was told would be “faaaaabulous” by some stylist trying to get her name in the paper.

We had a lot of love last night for Melissa McCarthy, nominee for best supporting actress for “Bridesmaids.”  They were ripping her dress to shreds on E! during their pre-show when her stylist came on and told the story of how they collaborated on the dress, and how happy she was with it, and how she loved it more than any dress she’d ever had.  And she looked great.  Why? She was happy. She was comfortable.  She was being herself.  (Note to Grandma McCarthy – don’t worry.  She looked like a lady).

A happy, glowing Melissa McCarthy. Being 100% Herself.

Make sure you feel like yourself in your wedding dress.  Whether or not you’re a lady? That’s up to you.
