A Day in the Life of A Dreamer

- I have always been a 'dreamer' and I think that is the most important quality a person can have in order to be creative. It allows me to view things from all sorts of angles. Whenever I would design for a wedding/special event I made myself 'think like a photographer' and in my mind's eye I wanted to be able to showcase various colors, elements & textures. At the end of 2012 I closed the doors to my Floral Studio and began pursuing new horizons. Flowers and plants have been a part of my life since I was a child and helped my Dad in the garden. Seeds have always fascinated me and one day I will share my 'Lesson Of the Bean' story with you! My other passion is creating beautiful food to share with family and friends -- I have always said that food and flowers go together. For now, I would like this Blog to be a collection of Pretty things that this Dreamer would like to share with all of you!

Can you believe we are almost through April!!!!! Yikes -- time does fly when you are having fun!!!
I have been richly blessed with another busy season of Bridal Consultations and Bookings for 2010. I love meeting people and helping them plan their 'Picture Perfect Day'.
Whenever I do a consultation, I like to get information ahead of time about colors, likes/dislikes, etc. so I can order in a selection of magnificent flowers for everyone to touch, smell and enjoy. It's like 'Show & Tell' - I don't know who has more fun!!!!
It brings a smile to my face and 'sunshine' in my heart when I bring out a cooler bucket of these blooms and my potential bride comments that she will take the 'bucket' just the way it is!!! I have always said, flowers do all the work -- I just help them out now and then -- tee hee!!!
Today, Jeff Leatham reinforced that statement -- He was a guest on Oprah Winfrey's Show featuring 'Dream Jobs' and he spoke about how he entered the world of Floral Designer -- He needed a job! He is a premier Floral Designer who didn't know he was a floral designer -- he had a friend who gave him a chance at the Four Seasons Hotel to try his hand at floral design - he took the flowers and let them do the work!!! Today he made Hydrangea Clouds for Oprah -- absolutely awesome and breathtaking!!!
Bring some 'Clouds' & 'Sunshine' into your day -- find your Passion and make it work for you!!! Remember - Celebrate Life With Flowers!
