Earlier this month, we brought you some best practices for event professionals on Instagram. For the rest of the summer, we'll be focusing on accounts that do it right—sharing high-quality images, offering tons of creative inspiration, and amassing large followings on the photo-sharing platform.
Below is a (highly subjective) list of floral designers who inspire us with their Instagram feeds. Whether you're looking for a florist to hire for your next event, or want to keep up with the latest trends, or simply want to admire beautiful things, these accounts are chock-full of inspiration. Take a look at our picks—and follow @BizBash to let us know who we missed.
