7 Black Florists to Follow on Instagram
Spending more time on Instagram as you responsibly stay at home doesn’t have to mean mindless scrolling -- In fact, we’re constantly using the social media app as a way to connect with other brilliant makers and fill our minds with inspiration for projects and collaborations. Instagram is a particularly great place to support BIPOC artists and small businesses; every like, share, and comment helps boost their visibility and platform. Show some love to these seven incredible Black florists by adding their beauty to your feed!
Bia Blooms’ feed is like a bright burst of floral sunshine on our feeds. Founder Bia Yapp might technically be a newcomer to the floral scene, but don’t let that fool you -- Her designs are bold and inspiring in their form and design. As a bonus, she often takes and posts videos while she works, which are such a great resource for budding floral designers!
We would be remiss not to include Jasmine Ellesse of Coco & Bailey Weddings on this list -- She’s one of our favorites! From helping out with She Loves Me installs to her own stunning floral creations and her gorgeous work as a graphic designer, Jasmine really does it all.
Mallory Browne creates some of our favorite installations on the gram, and her gravity-defying arrangements never fail to make us smile! We’re constantly fangirling over her creative use of dried and fresh florals to create stunning pieces full of whimsy and magic.
Look no further than The Petal Effect if you’re trying to boost your feed with bright color in preparation for winter! Tobore Oweh’s stunning creations are simply unreal in their attention to color and form. Honestly, it’s hard to pick a favorite.
There is so much joy to be found on Whit McClure’s floral feed! From vibrant dried boutonnieres to creative bouquets combining tropical, dried, and sunny fresh florals and all the arrangements in between, @whit_hazen is an account we constantly find ourselves scrolling through for gorgeous styling inspiration.
Schentell Nunn of Offerings is the master of combining neutrals in ways that are anything but boring! Her muted palettes are stunning in their form and attention to color pairings. And her mastery extends to jewelry creation as well, as she creates beautiful minimal but showstopping metallic pieces.
