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!

2012 Magic of Love & A Cure For Cancer Valentine's Fundraiser Results
Good News is always fun to share but first I want to tell everyone who came out to Best Buds and supported the 2012 Magic of Love & Cure for Cancer Valentine Fundraiser Event how much it meant to have your support for this very worthy cause.
We had so much fun from Friday all the way until Valentine's Day seeing all the faces of those who came to pick up their 'Magic' Roses ... and hearing all the positive feedback as to how surprised they were to see what 'they were getting'. Many had never seen Golden Flower's 'Magic Rose' Series .... as I said before - they are not your garden variety of Valentine Red Rose .... they are just a fun rose as you can see from the photo I added. Most were pleasantly surprised as to how they were packaged and could not wait to give them to their 'special someones'. Again and again I am hearing as to how surprised they were at 'how long the roses lasted' ..... I tell them that is a Best Buds' trade secret :-)
Well here is the GOOD NEWS that I broke to Diane O'Donnell, the Chairperson from the American Cancer Society Tamaqua Relay For Life Campaign. . .
BEST BUDS IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE DONATION OF $1,180.30!!!!!! Best Buds' donated all of the 300 roses, accent flowers, packaging, sweet treats, time, etc. and yes, we could have charged so much more ... but I believe EVERYONE should have flowers ... it's the 'Magic' of Valentine's Day and the joy of giving that makes life so worthwhile!
Again, Thank You ..... Thank You ..... Thank You for allowing me the privilege of putting on this event and again for your support of the American Cancer Society and Best Buds Specialty Florists!
