A closeup of the topper. What great flower placement by KB Kakes. They filled in between the layers with flowers we provided, so that they are a perfect match to the flowers used the rest of the day.

For the guy's bout we used green dendrobium orchids, with blue delphenium, and a lttle beading to pull all the colors together.
We did a few different styles of centerpieces, and I think this picture of one of the designs is great. It is a large cylinder vase, with curly willow & floating cymbidium orchids.

I knew I had made the right decision, when I walked out of the shop to deliver the arrangement, and I looked over toward Cafe C to see colorful paper lanterns & linens hanging up under the tent in the back parking lot. It was as if I was a Fly on the wall when Leah was making her decorating plans for the grand opening.
Thank you for inviting us. The atmosphere was great, and the food was even better. I just wish I hadn't needed to go to the Gym after, and could have eaten more. I loved the door prizes. They placed a sticker on the bottom of some of the dishes served. If you got a dot you could turn your plate in for a prize. I won a Cafe C T-shirt and lunch for 2. I am very excited about both.

Tina's bouquet of made of hydrangeas, stephanotis, brown hypericum and green cymbidium orchids.
Dan's bout was a green cymbidium orchid with green hypericum berries.
FYI: Hypericum berries are St. John's wort. Many a groom has joked about popping a few berries in their mouth during the ceremony.
Don't you love how the bouquets just pop in front of the chocolate dresses. I am in love with that lime green color.

Corsages of white football mums for the moms, orange spray rose for a friend and orange rose bouts for the guys.
Erin bouquet was a hand tied of orange roses, with a smaller one for her attendant.
Being a Gator fan, myself.....I added a Gator pin to the blue ribbon holding the bouquet together. A nice surprise for the bride.
Best wishes to Erin & Derek and GOOOOO GATORS!!!!!!

Everyone is a grandchild and can be involved in the observance of this day - a time to discover one's roots and learn patience, understanding and appreciation for the elderly. Grandparents Day is the perfect time to enhance communication between the generations.
Many times, only grandparents have answers to questions about family histories. When this information is passed down to the grandchildren, everyone can be assured of his heritage being preserved. .
Most important, Grandparents Day can signify a loving spirit that lives with in us throughout the year--a spirit of love and respect for our elders.
Why send flowers, or a card, or give your "Grandparent" a call.

Jennifer's birthday is this upcoming weekend, but we sent her flowers from her friend Kim (another one of my favorite customer)a few days early. Jennifer loves the English Cottage Garden look. I called my supplier, and we came up with a great garden look for her gift. Hydrangea, Iris, Bupleurum, Salal leaves, Calycinia, and a little Bear Grass. Instead of a basket or vase, I used a metal planter, with a vase inserted in the middle. The cream colored tin features a design of hydrangeas, which can later be used as an accent piece in the home or office.
Hope everyone has a great and safe Labor Day Weekend.

Here is the empty container. It spells out BABY as you turn the sides. Always a nice gift, as it is made of crystal, and can be used in the nursery.
The concept I came up with, was Orange, Blue & White, with an extra special gift added. A pair of Gator Baby Booties. The sender thought it was a great idea. So here is what we sent.....
The Gator Baby Booties are dear to me, as Terry brought a pair to me in the hospital when Abbey was born. In true Terry style he proudly announce that he had shoplifted them, much to the astonishment of the nursing staff in the room. I then had to explain that he had "stolen" them from my store, so it was not really shoplifting.
Another arrangement I did was also for a baby boy. This one is in a blue ceramic container, which can also be used in the nursery. I used dark blue Delphinium, green Carnations, yellow Daisies, with a touch of Caspia.
