Soul Sisters the name was created because I have had the pleasure of being inspired and shown support by numerous women who mean a lot to me. Once we were just a small group of ladies, my self included, that came together to help struggling Mom's and families. We grew close and soon realized our passion for helping people was not the only thing we had in common, we like to create, inspire, and see people smile. Women on a mission to uplift and help others bonded us together. Soul Sisters is what we are and we have a passion for family, creating, inspiring, working hard, dreaming big, and helping people. We choose to try to make people’s days a little brighter. Women who show support and inspire each other and others, Soul Sisters. Our products are handmade just for you.
I am the founder, designer, photographer behind Soul Sisters Designs. This is my dream and my passion but my soul sisters are a big support and part of the reason I took plunge to jump into being a mompreneur.(mom/entrepreneur...and slash a million other hats. Moms understand what I mean by that. lol) I'm a mom(to three great girls...one who has a special heart and takes extra attention but loves to help mom create), a wife, a small business owner, an artist at heart, and I am passionate about what I do.
About Our Products
Our products are handmade just for you! It is also true our flowers are made from wood! I know they look real and in a way they are because they are real wood! lol They will never wilt or die and can be died any color you can imagine or dream up. We specialize in wedding flowers but we also make a lot of special occasion bouquets and home décor as well. We add our flowers as accents to other home décor and gift products also. From wedding flowers to custom signs to special photo projects and even beautiful landscape photography that you can hang on your wall, we can do it all.
Wood flowers? Really? These are questions I hear daily as people look at and touch my flowers. They just cant believe that they aren't real or that they are made out of wood.
So how are they made? They are hand made from sola wood rolls of wood that are harvested and cut from tapioca wood. Once it is harvested the wood is cut into thin sheets that are either raw or some that still have what is considered a skin on it. Raw is the beautiful natural white to ivory tones that you see in the raw flowers. (like the picture to the left) Flowers made from the sheets of wood that still have the skin on them will appear as if they have a thin layer of smooth bark on them. Much like real flowers our flowers have tiny pieces of natural beauty that make them look more real. Small holes in petals are from knots in the wood. These sheets are then cut into petals and shapes and put together to form flowers.
Why wood flowers? wood vs real
Great question, thank you for asking!! There are so many reasons why wood flowers are simply an amazing choice! They are beautiful and because they are wood and not fabric or real they can be dyed or painted in just about any color you can possibly dream up. They also can be scented to smell like real flowers but without making you sneeze or worrying about puffy eyes and allergies on your big day. A few drops of essential oil or other diffuser type oils can be applied deep inside the petals and because they are wood they will soak up the oil and smell fabulous. Need more reasons? Good I have them for you! Wood flowers, unlike real flowers will never wilt or die. Ever get a beautiful bouquet of flowers only to have them die a few days later and make you sad? Wood flowers wont make you sad. With that said if you are using them for a special occasion such as your wedding this means you will have beautiful and unique bouquet and a beautiful keepsake from your special day. That leads me to reason 151! Wood flowers aren't just neat and pretty to look at, they are also a better deal cost wise. They are less expensive than real flowers, they can be arranged ahead of time so no last minute worries about whether your flowers will be just right and no stress over keeping them watered so they don't wilt before your first dance.
How do you care for wooden flowers?
That is easy too. While these are made from wood they can be delicate as well. A petal may chip if handled roughly but other than that these flowers need almost no care. No green thumb, no problem. They don't need water or sunlight. Actually kind just the opposite. Keeping these flowers away from moisture and exposure to long periods of direct sunlight will keep them looking beautiful for years to come.

You are my first priority! I schedule orders based on what I have booked already and when you need your order. If this is a rush order please let me know. If your event is in less than two weeks from the time of order that is fine but I do need to know. I usually give a time frame of two weeks for custom orders just to be on the safe side to allow for flower dying and drying times and such.
I typically ship items USPS, with insurance. Once I ship items they are out of my control. I will do everything in my power to make sure they arrive to you on time an in perfect condition. If for some reason the USPS does not get them to you or damages them you will need to take pictures of the items and file a claim with the USPS. Please, let me know so I can help you and so we can work to find a solution or I can work on a replacement.
Additional shipping: If you need expedited shipping for a rush order that can be arranged for additional charge.
Deposits and Cancellations:

Cancellations of custom orders have to be made within 24 hours of the order.
This information can also be found on the checkout page.
