Could we call this my new flower bible?

Finally! My copy of the 50 Mile Bouquet has finally arrived and is sitting on my night stand. I wish that I could start reading right now, but college is winding down and that means presentations and exams are due. Dang it! Two more weeks….you can DO IT!!

The reviews I have heard already are inspiring enough. “I’m already through the introduction I started crying.”

Flowers are really that moving people. Why wouldn’t you want to have a local bouquet of flowers? Those roses in the supermarket have zero scent compared to a bunch cut from a local producer.Weddings…. fresh and local! Need I say more?

If you haven’t already I would suggest buying, borrowing, checking-out, anything to get your hands on this book. I’m sure it is truly amazing!

Hi Everyone! These past two months have been extremely busy, what with trying to find a job and finishing school. The pressure of the real world is starting to hit and sink in. Not too coll in my book, but hey we all have to grow-up sometime.

A lot has been happening with Prairieland, many offers to grow-cancellations-and possible additional weddings. One thing is certain: make sure that contracts are signed before any consultations begin. Mistake #1 of the business venturing that shall not be made again. My wonderfully awesome advisor has asked me to grow flowers for his business. What an amazing opportunity to be able to jump right into growing after graduation. Details are being hashed out as we speak. My family is amazing and keeps recommending me to all of their friends who are getting married. Love, Love, LOVE! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I’ve started a new job, well last March I did. Organic certification intern! What another great opportunity to experience before growing. Now if there is any question as to growing certified organic or conventional I will be all up to speed on the regulations.

If you are needing a pick me up from the Friday the 13th lull, check out Poppytalk.

Have a wonderful weekend!

 

just twiddling my thumbs

It seems these days I have been doing alot of that. Twiddling my thumbs that is. Do some homework, twiddle, read a book, twiddle, watch t.v., twiddle. Luckly there is something now to pass the time. I got a request a few weeks back to provide flower arrangements for an even this Saturday. With some planning and creative thinking on both ends, a decision was made. Roses galore!! Ok with some lilies too, now you know. The secret is out.

This afternoon has been spent putting together the “rose strings” and finally using my Christmas present from my parents. A pair of Corona floral snips. They are FANTASTIC! Super easy to use too.

Be prepared for some amazing photos of the event.

 

Bridal Inspiration:: A Day of Love

As much as I love Valentine’s Day, choosing flowers for a heart day themed wedding can become a task within itself. For one thing you can go WAY over the top with hearts, red, pink, glitter, and that all over mushy gushy L-O-V-E. You could also lay low and just stick with a bunch of red roses and call it good. Whatever your heart desires your wedding day will be the most spectacular display of love.

weekending

Well this past weekend was spent in Lincoln, due to the snow that blew through. Boring as it was, I actually got something done. Amazingly. Tiff and I watched movies, did some baking, watched some more movies, watched it snow. While it was all fun I’m glad that it is finally over and I can leave the apt. This next weekend I’m doing an event with some awesome Uncles of mine. Stay tuned for pics.
