A little video about roses :)

Many thanks to Nicole Krawcke the editor of the Brighton Patch a local online news source. She stopped into the store last week to ask a few questions about the approach of spring and how it impacted my business. I was designing an arrangement for a customer at the time and Nicole asked if she could film me working. Normally I am very awkward on camera but this was so casual that I actually had fun. Here is a link to the video on roses.

Fresh roses always make a great statement. Aside from the traditional red, we have gorgeous "purple haze" and two-tone "sweetness" varieties. Starting at $29.00 for a half dozen with fresh greenery and fillers.

Christa’s bouquet was adorned with her mother’s rosary…something old…and very sentimental.

New Floral Ideas

I had a fabulous time at the Great Lakes Floral Expo. My stay at the elegant Amway Grand Plaza Hotel was wonderful and I will definitely return for another visit there. A quick walk through a skywalk took me to the DeVos Convention Center where I attended a class and had a look at the vendor booths. I am returning to the studio overflowing with new ideas that I can’t wait to try out!
