One word, no wait...actually two: ONCIDIUM ORCHIDS

I just spent the last week being surrounded by 550 stems of electric yellow orchids, and 40 centerpieces that filled every nook and cranny of my tiny little store (more on this in the near future) OH! did I mention this was the 5th event of the weekend? No, well it was haha...SO many pictures to share, of so many fun details. Andree and David have a really cool aesthetic, and I had so much fun working with them, and being surrounded by all that sunny yellow...nicknamed bumblebee vomit by my friend Emilie. 

So...story, as I promised in the last post, I had funny stories to share. Picture this...me, almost doing a full on faceplant in front of all the guests milling around the cocktail area. The French judge gave me a 9.5, and I got a 10 from the Japanese judge. I blame it on the flip flops, and the fact that I was TRYING to be funny by joking with Emilie about how funny it would be if I did a faceplant in front of the guests. Hmmm...um, yes. Don't wish that on yourself ever. Luckily I don't embarrass easily and Emilie's silent belly laughter (you know the kind) and quiet..."stoppppp or i'm going to pee my pants!" kept things light. 
Some of my favorite shots of the day:
