The Black Garden Floral Planner from Paper Source is a spiral-bound agenda that includes monthly and weekly spreads that help you manage your busy schedule. Each day on the weekly grids has a lined section with ample room for appointments, meetings, events, assignments, commitments, and more.

It’s fit to plan everything from your everyday appointments to the happiest of occasions…and will catch an eye (or two) in the process.
Ban.do agenda is not just your average planner. It’s also an art gallery, a cheerleader, a top secret document, a personal assistant, and a best friend. My fave is this “I am very busy” large agenda. It has yearly, monthly, and weekly views, tons of notes pages, color-coded tabs, stickers (a lot), cool art from our cool friends, weekend to-dos, compliments, a neat poster, and just so much more.
The Lilly Pulitzer Large Agenda comes in SO many bright and beautiful prints. You can keep your social schedule in order (and in style) with your new planner.
