The dreaded V-day...

so...its over. as i wrote order after order and quickly abbreviated many card messages i soon found myself giggling at what i was writing...."happy v.d." you know a holiday should be eliminated when the abbreviation congratulates you on your new sexually transmitted disease. for you non-florist types valentines day is a day where people give you happy chocolates and things shaped like cutesie hearts, even if you're single, i've heard its a very happy day, filled with all sorts of that love stuff...but for us its a day when we wake up and wish that we could hide in the bedroom closet until its over.

so, because i am insane...i also decided to go ahead and do a wedding along with all the normal craziness. brenda and jeff were funny, quirky, and wanted something colorful and different so i signed myself up for it knowing that i was doing something not many florists would even think twice about doing.

maybe its because i am a machine. i even have metal parts...*

brenda's bouquet was a mix of sweetpea, lots and lots of sweet pea, anemone, posy callas, tulips, ranunculus, lisianthus, phlox and cymbidium orchids. i love a huge mix of things and the texture it produces when all is said and done. i remember at one point walking around holding her bouquet with my face right in it because mannnnn did it smell good.

everything else was bright, very very very bright.

so needless to say, i'm tired...and i'm happy that its over. and now i have a quiet day of catching up on my wedding quotes. (if you have yet to receive one from me...i not officially promise you its one its way!) 

*totally a lie, i wrote it for dramatic effect
