Thursday Update

I have to run out the door to go pick up a few hundred lavender plants for a wedding this weekend, but wanted to let you in on some goings on around here...

1. Had dinner with Nicolette and the famed Emily Thompson last night. Amazing. I feel very happy and lucky this morning to have made a new friend. We talked and talked about flowers, the industry, clients, challenges, successes, money....

2. We have a new intern, Suset, who is killer, and whose enthusiasm is unmatched. She suggested she sleep overnight in the studio so she could get to work first thing in the morning. I really like her.

3. We have a ton of juicy spring material kicking around right now including single petaled white cherry, california poppies, gypsy hyacinth, local ranunculus, mums (i said it), fritillaria, etc and we'll be around through the weekend selling it if you want to come by.

4.. Free flower friday has got to be a pick-up this week, do you mind? We're a bit busy with a big wedding this Sunday and I want to keep everyone close to the studio. I throw in a bar of soap for you too...

Hope all is well out there with you and yours -

I don't mind picking up free flowers one bit. How glorious it would be to have them convince me that it's spring!

I don't live in the city but wanted to say I read the NYT article a couple of days ago and was both thrilled by the awesome design work going down and the little shout out for the other floral designers doing beautiful work. Props to all.
