Extreme Makeover Home Edition: Gainesville aired Sunday, February 21 on ABC. We were invited by Amy at Adore Events to help with the VIP Viewing Party at the Gainesville Women's Club. Unforgettable Events was in charge of the decor, with a little help from some of our pieces.
Tobin Wagstaff brought a guitar to be signed by people who helped with the build. Behind the guitar is a 30 year old drum he had refurbished with pictures from the build. What a great display piece.
Here I am with Tobin after the party (minus the Mohawk).
A nice way to say thank you to some of the contibutors. A good time was had by all.
So, when I was in college, and working at The Plant Shoppe. A lady had been out in the garden center looking at plants. She then came into the florist. I mentioned to her that she had a little "dirt" on her forehead, yes I am also type to tell you that you have something in your teeth. Well instead of her being embarrassed about a little "dirt" on her head, I was the one embarrassed, because it was Ash Wednesday. So, if you see anyone with a little "dirt" on their forehead today...........
Tim came in looking for something special to send to Amber for Valentine's day. After asking a few questions, we were able to come up with this cute arrangement and Thornbrook Chocolates. Amber loves ladybugs (lovebugs).
One of our flower suppliers did a mini experiment last year and ordered some "boxed" flowers to compare them to ones they provide. This is what they had to say...... I thought you might be interested in hearing about a dozen roses we ordered. The order was for one dozen roses and Godiva chocolates and cost $49.99. It as delivered by UPS at about 3:30 on Valentines Day, as promised. The roses were packed well, but only 30 cm. in length, which is 12 inches. They barley came over the top of the vase. There was a little botrytis (Yucky disease) on the petals which spread to other roses after two days. The chocolates were in a large package, but the size box of candy was very disappointing. Overall, we felt that a customer could get a much better deal from a local florist than from the online source.

Their colors are burnt orange, ivory, champagne & gold.Here are her Mango mini calla lily, and orange Mokara orchids.For some of her centerpieces we are using our large cylinders, with Mokara orchids, curly willow & brown stones.
Violets are know more as a plant, but they do produce a 5 petaled velvety blossom. They can be found year round, in pinks, purple, whites, and combos of the colors. They are easy to propagated from the leaves, and do best in a sunny window.
