Mums is the Word
Just wanted to share this photo from the Valley Forge Flower Show, the largest in the U.S. According to a blog post by Sharon McGukin AIFD, AAF, PFCI, "five weeks of cutting string, eight colors of materials, 16 miles of cord, 40 metal grids, 85 volunteers, 4,000 OASIS® Netted Spheres and more than 15,000 stems of preserved flowers." You have got to visit Sharon's blog post for even more amazing photos of this fantastic display of floral design excellence and creativity. It would seem impossible to do what you'll see in these photos. So proud of my industry!
If you're like me, you have a secret love of coloring. You know, like when you were a kid and you opened up the brand new box of 64 Crayolas and colored to your hearts content in your favorite coloring book? (Mine was a giant Sesame Street coloring book. Actually it still is and I still have it).
Now it doesn't have to be a secret love any more. The new in-vogue thing is coloring books for adults!
Here is a link to a full book, and also, here is a link for a free printable from the most awesome website The Graphics Fairy.com. Of course, it's a floral pattern. Beautiful blooming iris in any color of your choice.
It's the Wednesday before prom and we have more orders than we've ever had for one dance weekend. We are still taking orders, but there's no telling how soon we reach our limit. Please order now if you haven't already. If you have already ordered, thank you!
Pictures of prom flowers can be found on our website here.
We'll see you Saturday from 10am-2pm. Don't forget, we close at 2 on Saturdays. No new orders will be taken on Saturday.
Welcome Spring! Just met with our cute new bride Arianne, who is getting married in October.
So exited to go see Casablanca at the Layton Tinseltown on Wednesday, March 21, 2012. Nothing like a classic movie on the big screen!
Got Hunger Games tickets? I can't wait for Thursday night!
