Valentine's Day is one of those holidays which elicits many emotions from people. There are the hopeless romantics--wooed by every romantic endeavor and heart shaped confection. There are the scoffers---the anti-consumerists, the non-believers, the folks who groan and roll their eyes at such fancy. Me, I suppose I've hit every part of the spectrum at some point in my life. Currently, I'm being influenced by a six year old girl enamored with glitter, sparkles, tulips and the color pink. Valentine's Day around here has become more of a "party of 3" family event filled with sweet love notes to Dad, and an overload of chocolates.
My working life, however, is a different story. I've been lucky enough to have the clients who are after something special and beautiful because they are the believers and dreamers and sappy-eyed romantics who want to please the person they adore and let them know how happy they are to have them in their life. There is a code of ethics involved in floristry you don't often hear about that is akin to Doctor/patient confidentiality. You see, I write the love notes attached to the blooms I send out. I've blushed, laughed and gotten choked up writing them. But that is all I can reveal ;)
On my end, all I can say is, flowers--like people--have personality. For Valentine's day I gravitate towards a mix of hushed, blushing tones and deeper mysterious ones. Delicate, papery flowers, and lush blooms with hidden layers. Lots of touseld greenery, because--hey, in floral world that's how you do sexy, right? So, take a peek at our lovely, sexy, gorgeous, romantic pieces which went out to a bunch of women who embody those very qualities themselves!
