Everyone knows that time stands still for no-one and such was the case with Prom Season in May. I was still painting, cleaning, moving and tripping over boxes, but.....the guys still came in for Tuxedo measurements, selection and final fittings! We had a great time and as I am now centrally located, they were amazed to drive by well into the night and see me burning the midnight oil....literally, to make sure each couple had the flowers of their choice. All of these kids (FA, PCHS....and Greenville!) looked red carpet ready. Thanks to ALL of you for your patience.
Weddings......where do I start?? Congrats to Russ and Jamie....Matt and Dan ....., Jennifer and Gordon.... Sarah and Tyler.... Shelby and Anthony.... Stacey and Chris.... Jamie and Corey.... Melissa and Ryan.... Dillen and Clark.... Marleah and Ricky.... Randi and Phil.... Erica and Chris.... Harmony and William......I so enjoyed working with each and every couple to bring to fruition their ideas for their special day and lasting memories. Thank you ALL for trusting me with this monumental task.
People often ask me how long I have worked with flowers. I studied floral design at FL Art Institute after an incredibly rewarding 28 yr Nursing career in Oncology. I started my business when my first born Grandchild (Chloe) was two weeks old....she just turned 16 in August!! Seeing someone's face light up with the gift of flowers is always heart warming and especially on a Sunday morning!!......Yes, still delivering SEVEN days a week!
The shoppe will be gearing up for the holidays soon and I hope to see old and new friends come in. Don't forget for those friends and loved ones who are away.....order FTD, Teleflora or Flowershop Network with a myriad of choices to fit any budget.

Have you all heard about Coach Luis Ayala leading the NATION in votes to be the winner of a $50,000.00 grant for the Sports department at FA?? If you do not know this incredibly humble and giving man, just ask any student who has or is participating in one of his sports teams, camps or pick-up games. He is Coach, Dad, Husband (and more), but to all of these kids (and their families) he is an amazing role model and friend who ALWAYS finds the positive to comment on and share. How lucky we are to have such a great guy in our midst! The voting for this accolade...."Most Valuable Coach" and Prize goes until November 14th....Vote online at www.themostvaluablecoach.com......vote EVERY DAY!
I need to get back to work. I will try to be more diligent in sharing with you all. Caving to peer and Grandchild prodding, you will soon be able to find me on FB.....Yes I am a dinosaur!! My best to all of you for a great day and thanks for taking the time to catch up with me.
