Flower Life

Flower life has been good lately. With the bulk of my weddings in the fall this year, I've had the opportunity to fill my summer calendar working for other designers. Seeing old flower friends and making new ones is a really special part of my job. A few years ago I didn't know freelancing was an option, and now I'd miss it if I didn't get to do it.

In addition to freelancing, I spent time working on the Flower House preview. If you haven't heard, check it out. October in Detroit, mark your calendars!

Here's a peek. All photos are quickie phone shots because I'm usually busy, hot, tired... 

This was a pinch me moment in my career. I'm sure I never said to myself that I would love to work for Saipua someday, because it never occurred to me that it would be an option. Sarah, the head honcho, has been an inspiration to so so many florists and I am no exception. When I discovered her work a few years ago, I was ready to move on to a new career. She's the reason I'm still in the game. So when you hear she's coming to Detroit, you make sure to get on the designer list!

Did you check it out yet? Flower House. View the professional images, get inspired, get involved. Big big thanks to Lisa Waud for providing us florists with this playground and for continuing the conversation around American grown flowers and blight in Detroit.
