Colonel Joffre Haig Boston

Today we had the pleasure to honor a great man, Colonel Joffre Haig Boston(1917-2010). I meet Mr. & Mrs. Boston in the fall of 1996, when I moved into a home across the street from them. I was a graduate student at The University of Florida and the Bostons took me into their family. Mr. Boston servived in the U.S. Army for over 30 years and was awarded many medals. Below are some of the floral and plant arrangements we were asked to provide.

Extreme Makeover Home Edition - Public Tours

The Extreme Makeover home was open to the public for tours this past weekend. We were asked to provide a few more flowers for the tours. Here is Tobin getting ready for the house to be opened.
We placed some orchids in the master bedroom. I love the colors of the wall.
A nice tropical arrangement of Birds of Paradise for the kitchen.
Jolene's room. Too Cute.
This time we made Strawberry "Ice Cream" dishes for her room.
What a great experience for us to be involved in. It was a wonderful opportunity and I am so glad we were able to help.

Extreme Makeover Home Edition - Rudy & Dallas' Room

Vrooom, Vrooom, a race car theme for the boys to share, wouldn't be complete without a floral stoplight. Red carnations, yellow roses and green dianthus make our stoplight.
Silver, Silver dollar eucalyptus is housed in a container that is filled with recycled tire mulch.
Here we placed the eucalyptus in a container that reminded me of a radiator.
All the pieces grouped together.
