Friday’s Blooms

FridayBlooms1The summer feels like it is winding down, don’t you agree?  I wonder what my year will look like after my internship comes to a close; I fear it will not be as sweet-smelling or colorful!  Yesterday was a mellow day at the shop.  I got to make three chalkboard signs for Dallas’ festival booth she is hosting Saturday in Anchorage.  Also, I put together lots of boxes for future deliveries.  We chatted a little bit about the business and wholesale flowers.  By the drive home, I was dreaming of having a garden of my own and a stand at the CG farmer’s market to sell wildly romantic arrangements at.  Now wouldn’t that be wonderful?

  2. So many beautiful blooms!

    1. It has been such a treat to work at the flower shop every week this summer =)

  3. Your take home bouquet is fabulous! I love the idea of your farmer’s market stand!!!!

    1. Thank you! I’m pretty proud of it. And I think the booth would be a perfect compromise for my love of arranging but dislike of all the boring business jazz that usually comes with it.
