Clarksville florist Vase & Vine has expanded its floral studio to Little Rock with the opening of a new storefront at 2901 West Markham St. in Stifft Station. Manager Gabrielle Schryver says full-service wedding design in central Arkansas has been “taking off” in the past year, which led to the decision to put down roots in the capital city. “We wanted to bring something completely different to the Little Rock area,” Gabrielle says. “We are very versatile with our design, but we thrive in natural and organic style.” Gabrielle’s mother, Gina Schryver, has owned and operated the Clarksville location for 14 years. In addition to wedding design, Vase & Vine also offers fresh arrangements and delivery. Find more information at facebook.com/vaseandvine.…

They source flowers from all over the world, including two farms in Arkansas: Delta Sol Farm in Proctor and Wilson Gardens in Wilson. The Memphis natives have now released an inspirational coffee table book, Florists to the Field, which features a behind-the-scenes look at the designers as they conjure breathtaking tablescapes inspired by and created in the settings of each of their source farms. Other farms featured in the book include locations in Louisiana, Wisconsin, Oregon, California, and Holland. For a list of upcoming signings and to purchase the book, visit southerlymedia.com.
