I was browsing through thisnext.com (a fantastic new shopcasting website) this morning and stumbled upon a fabulous ribbon & gift packaging company called Midori, Inc. – which was recommended by style court. Instant Bookmark! Click here to browse their entire amazing selection of ribbon, nesting boxes, and cotton papers. I’m especially loving the goldfish and pineapple nesting boxes (centerpiece ideas!) and cherry blossom papers.

You have such a great little bolg going! I love it! I really love some of the things on the midori site that you talked about here. I would love to order some things but can’t see any place where they have prices or anyway to buy anything. Can you help? It’s probably really obvious and I just don’t see it!

Hi Kat.

I’m so glad you’re enjoying the blog! I will definitely post some decorating tips for you soon – it’s on the list! Is there a particular color scheme you’re following?

Hi Kristie –

I checked in with Midori and it turns out that they are a wholesale-only company, so their website is just an online catalog for “window shopping” rather than an actual shopping cart. To find out where you can purchase products near you – or online – just shoot an email to [email protected], or try giving them a call at 800.659.3049. Good luck!

We are the only ones who sell the entire line of Midori products (ribbon and boxes) on the interenet. I am working on redoing our website right now, but many of the products are currently available. The best part is that we sell the ribbon by the yard, so you don’t have to purchase a whole bolt. Our websites are http://www.romanticflowers.com and http://www.romanticribbons.com
