I found a new blog hosting website for my portfolio and it has worked better for what I was trying to do with my pictures. Check it out and consider making your own weebly! Its more like a website than a blog but it has blog features and can completely be a blog. Anyway...the new website is:
I will probably not update this blog much anymore.
Thanks for following!

This lady has come in twice to use our floral services in her catering business. She is a really nice lady who always has good creative challenges. I have been able to do both of her designs and they were both so fun.
The first one I don't have a picture of. I forgot my camera that day. She brought in a three level tray that was made of rusty copper and other metals. It was really cute. She wanted to put a floral arrangement on one of the levels and food on the rest. She also wanted it to be removable so she could also set it on the table. I did it in a gathering basket with the ends draping over the sides. It was purple, yellow and green and very wildflower looking since her catering job was in a cabin.
This next one (below) was an interesting one. When she came in she said she wanted a table runner-like arrangement. It was for a man and in his home. His house was brown with red accents and very outdoorsy. I knew right when she came in that I wanted to use that brown and yellow sunflower. She also asked if we could use peacock feathers or some other kind of animal feathers. The only ones we had were fake and plastic but that made it fun to work with. I curled them to add dramatic lines. I also added the dark articoke and some wheat. On the opposite side, I put one of the funeral fish into the design because he was an avid fisherman. I loved the way it turned out and so did everyone else in the shop. No one else knew how it was going to turn out with her weird descriptions. I wish the camera captured it a little better.

School has started so I have just been helping out at Rexburg Floral when I can and when they need the extra help. They have hired a new intern for the fall semester so she has been helping them out a lot now.
The high schools in the area had their homecomings and I helped out a lot and did some boutonnieres and corsages for the kids.

It's kinda sad realizing that I'm technically done working at Rexburg Floral. I will work some Saturdays though during school so that will be good.
We just had a lot of funerals recently. We completely sold out of plants and did a lot of funeral containers, baskets, standing sprays, casket sprays and vased arrangements. It was nuts! Almost like memorial day.

The mother wanted an arrangement for her daughter that was "supposed" to have a baby boy. I asked her why she said "supposed" and she said that she didn't trust ultrasounds. haha so I made it kinda unisex but I did add some blue delphinium. :)
I stem wrapped this bouquet for a wedding last weekend.Note: I did not make this bouquet. This is just to show the whole picture.
