About The SunnyBee


It all began on Etsy in 2011

Melissa Walsh - Owner, Maker, Designer

The SunnyBee was founded by me, Melissa Walsh – the designer and maker behind the brand.

The SunnyBee is the original home of the sola flower bridal bouquet! Have a gorgeous wedding like no other with QUALITY SunnyBee original sola wood designs. These handcrafted bridal florals can be customized to coordinate with your wedding colors and theme, making THE ORIGINAL sola flower bridal bouquet uniquely YOURS!

As the first keepsake florist to feature handmade bouquets made from sola wood flowers, SunnyBee wedding florals are not only elegantly permanent, they are also well made. SunnyBee flowers are colored using the highest quality professional grade pigments and dyes – never spray paint – so my keepsakes do not have an off-putting chemical odor. Quality is top priority and corners are never cut. Love and attention go into SunnyBee keepsakes for stunning bouquets, boutonnieres, and floral accessories that last.

Wholesale sola flowers are inexpensive because the flowers themselves are quickly produced as supplies for use in crafts, decorations, potpourri, etc. They are delicate and often come broken or misshapen because suppliers do not necessarily intended them to last. My goal for your flowers, is to make quality enduring pieces. Extra care and time are given to ensure that SunnyBee sola flowers are well shaped and sturdy when prepped; a BIG distinction between The SunnyBee and other sola shops. These sola flowers are special because of how they are transformed from something moderate, into something exceptional. Without adequate prep, sola flowers may not keep well, leaving you with little more than decorations, instead of flowers worth keeping forever.
