This Wedding Florist Turns Leftover Arrangements Into Public Art

+

One of the loveliest parts of any wedding also happens to be one of the most wasteful. All of the flowers, so painstakingly arranged, often become an afterthought as soon as the last dance has ended. Krissy Price, a florist who runs a company called Boston Pollen, wanted to put all of those leftover flowers to a new purpose. As she tells Boston.com, she started out reusing the flowers as art installations at home, but soon decided she should share them with the public.

 

 

The result, which she calls #guerillaflowerfare on her very popular Instagram account, has been public arrangements throughout the city, from public transport stations, to statues, and elsewhere. She announced the next location of her work on her Snapchat @BostonPollen.

 

Guys, I gave Abigail Adams (and some other gals) a makeover last night. #?? #guerrillaflowerfare
