Flowers!

I love to do wedding flowers. I love it. But recently things just have not been working out well for me in that arena.

Lets see, started a couple years ago, I had a wedding scheduled and ended up really nauseous for several weeks. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. Finally went to the doctor and no, I was not preggers, I had double ear infections. weird right? What am I, four years old? Anyway, I had to find another florist to take over for me at the last minute. I was stressed.. thought I was going to ruin this couples wedding. but it all worked out.

Then last year my brother Pete was getting married and I was planning on doing their wedding flowers. They were having their reception on a Friday .. so I needed to have the flowers completed by Thursday night. On Tuesday of that same week I found out I had lost my pregnancy at 24 weeks. By Thursday I was in absolutely no condition mentally or physically to do anything but lay in bed. Had to find another florist to take over.

I was getting a complex that maybe I should not commit to do flowers anymore.

So when my friend Mandy contacted me about doing her sisters flowers I was a bit hesitant to commit. I was worried something would come up... again. but I did it, and they turned out beautiful. The pictures are not the best with my messy kitchen in the background, but I was in a hurry to get them delivered. Anyway.. enjoy!

Lovely isn't it? I just love the depth of color that these particular roses present. They are just stunning flowers. I sure hope the bride loves them too. Guess I will find out at the reception tomorrow.

Wish me luck.
