We survived Valentine's Day !!

Well just a note to say we survived Valentine's Day!!

And a big Thank You! to all of the men and ladies who gave us their floral orders and allowed us to play Cupid for them.. we appreciate your business.

We had some interesting clients this year.. a chef from a local downtown hotel proposed to his sweetie- and she said- "YES". Congratulations to the happy couple! Our favorite married man's order was one of our regular clients. This Mr. Wonderful- took the time to shop for gift cards to at least 7 different places his lovely wife liked to shop. As if that wasn't enough, he had us include them into a floral arrangement we then delivered to her place of work. We're sure she was very surprised. What a Guy!!

Now, we can rest just a little. We can celebrate our Valentine's Day this weekend with our honeys. I especially hope my daughter enjoys her belated Valentine's Day with her Soldier who is coming home for the weekend. He will be leaving to go overseas. We wish him well and hope his time there goes very quickly.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Keep warm!

All the Best-

The Garden Court Wedding Show

Well, Kelly and I survived the wedding show this weekend...despite the very cold weather.

As planned, we were un-planned for what our display would consist of. So we put our creative little thinking caps on- Kelly's was larger because of her giant hair! Anyway, we went with a more contemporary approach with the main display. Our placement within the atrium poses a challenge. Working with three glass walls and two doors on the remaining wall means think outside the box. We shared our atrium space with Sweet Surrender and their yummy cakes and Bella Rentals.

Our florals included amaryllis, orchids, hydrangea, giant ranunculus, hyacinth, hanging amarantha, star of Bethleham, wheat grass and more. We also premiered our preserved roses and surprised a couple of brides with their fresh appearence.

We received wonderful responses from the brides, fiances and attendees. We have booked some dates as a result of the show. If you're a bride interested in a date don't wait too long to book with us. We base our availability on each bride's individual needs for that day. With that in mind some dates are completely booked.

I'll post some photos from the show. Because of our recent computer issues..again.. hopefully they'll upload.

Thanks for reading.. and a huge thanks to Kelly for all of your hard work and creative ideas.

All the Best-
