Valentine's Day Weekend

What a busy weekend! But it was a blast. I loved experiencing my first Valentine's day as a florist serving friends and students in College Station. Thank you to everyone who supported me by ordering flowers, I hope they made the recipient feel loved! For Valentine's, I'm not really a fan of the traditional arrangement of red roses. If it were me getting flowers, I'd much rather have a bright mix of different colors and textures for a fresh and youthful look! So for my orders I used one of my favorite roses, Pink Floyd, which is a vibrant hot pink rose that opens up big and beautiful! I also chose to use pink majolica spray roses, pink lisianthus, peach stock, red ranunculus, and pink and red tulips.  I love greenery! So I used a mix of variegated pittosporum, feathery plumosa, salal, and dusty miller.

Valentine's wasn't the only project Flourish had this weekend though!

I had the opportunity to partner with an extremely talented photographer, Whitney Gilmer of W. Gilmer Photography, on Sunday to create some beautiful newborn portraits. For the session, we did an adorable flower crown made out of peachy Isle spray roses as well as the cute wreath around her.

HOW PRECIOUS IS THIS PICTURE!   I love it and loved getting to work with Whitney! Check out her work here.

But the weekend doesn't end there! Flourish also did some designs for our friends in Aggie Theta for their preview day on Sunday! These designs included white hydrangea, peach stock, a beautiful blush rose called Trust, a few Pink Floyd roses, Isle spray roses, hypericum berries, hot pink ranunculus and seeded eucalyptus. It looked great with gold accents at the event! And this tin container from Hobby Lobby was awesome and looked great with the flowers.
