Here is a picture of a bouquet my mom and I just put together for a bride's wedding portrait. She is getting married in November, and we are so looking forward to this job because of her excellent taste in flowers. She has pretty much given us carte blanche in designing her reception. It will consist of almost one hundred glass square and rectangular vases scattered about with both single blooms and multiples- all surrounded by hundreds of tealights. It is going to be modern, gorgeous, intimate. The bouquet pictured above includes several bunches of ranunculus, about ten tulips, macarana spray roses, freesia, and exquisite (and rare, as we have discovered) fiddlehead ferns. The fiddleheads are such odd specimens- slick brown shoots that curl at the ends into a perfect spiral. These had to be flown in from Hawaii, and were available only in a very limited quantity.
I am quite excited about the momentum our business is gaining. How great it would be to continue working at something that I love so much and am so passionate about. Go Posy!
