Build Your Bouquet, Piece by Piece
Amanda Heer San Juan Capistrano-based florist is known for her arrangements made of real buds, but it’s her Brooch Bouquets that make her unique.
Here’s how it works: You collect brooches, earrings, pendants, watches, and cuff links from friends and family. Once you have 50 to 60 pieces, send them to Heer with a note indicating those you love and like. She’ll take your box of sparkly things, turn them into a magical work of art by adding a few of her own (how she does it is a secret), and ship it to you in just one week’s time.
The bouquets cost $350 each, which is a deal when you consider they are sentimental heirlooms.
