It rained, and then it was sunny....and then it rained again. It was freezing, and then it was warm, and then it was sunny again. I secretly jumped in puddles in the parking lot of the reception hall after I dropped everything off. Pretty much the perfect New England spring day...Jen looked gorgeous and from what I've seen from pictures on the ol' facebook everybody was smiling from ear to ear. Vintage-y, lace-y, quiet, soft and lovely...perfect combo for a spring day with a personality disorder.
I totally forgot to post this, because...well I am a bonehead. I made this bouquet and arrangement for a bridal show a couple weeks ago. Super vintage-y looking, everything down to the vintage lace on the handle to the classic 1950's sulfur yellow ceramic vase found during on of my many thrifting adventures. OH! and with that said my collection of vintage containers, is growing and if you would ever love a delivery done in one I would LOVE to do that. We currently have a ton of milk glass, the entire stock from a old soda fountain (little ice cream sundae cups, frappe glasses etc), old tins, vintage bottles...weee! Anyway, back to the flowers, because really thats why you're here right?
(I get asked this question ever time I post a picture of one of my bouquets in a jar...I send all wedding party bouquets out in labeled Mason Jars. They're super cute, make transportation sure duper easy for both myself and the bridal party, and totally relieve my stress about sending bouquets out with water.)
Things are opening left and right, reaching for the sunshine. The shops window boxes are getting a fresh coat of paint, Daffodils are slowly showing their silly little faces, and I find myself sitting on the front steps watching people walk by. Pollen is every where, and people are red-eyed and full of snot. Oh welcome spring, how I missed your minxy ways! With spring brings a whole new selection of flowers in the shop. Lilac and beautiful electric green Snowball Viburnum, flowering branches galore, Peonies ohhhhhhhh the Peonies and one of my all time favorites Boronia. Needless to say, I'm a happy camper...
With spring also comes a new employee, her name is Rebecca, and she's neato.
Wedding season is just around the corner and my filing cabinet is filled to the brim of lovely ladies and gentlemen who are getting ready to tie the knot. The pile of weddings just keeps growing too, in fact I've run out of empty files...note to self: buy more files. So, be prepared to be overwhelmed with event photos. (I'll apologize in advance...hehe, my bad!)
I can't keep a house plant in the shop for more then a few days...so there is always something new and green and happy for you to bring home. Currently the Gardenia plants have won me over...if only this was a scratch and sniff post.
And now...I will leave you with some little spring lovelies...oh, and DAMN, get outside why dontcha! It's too nice out to be reading this silliness...
