Tell Me a Story + A Giveaway!

Hello August 1st!! How is it August already?? Here in Colorado that marks being half way through wedding season – hip hip hooray!

So I got to thinking while I was designing wedding flowers that I’d like to celebrate the middle of wedding season by giving away a copy of Bella Bouquets book:

Then started thinking of a fun way to give it away and thought to myself, it sure would be fun to know more about all of you out there!

So here’s the deal – email us a story!

Any topic related to flowers; why you got started in the business, what flower is your favorite and why, a funny story from an event or major flower holiday (almost all of us have Valentine’s horror stories!!), best reaction by a bride when she saw her flowers, your #1 moment in the business, what you hope to accomplish in the next 5 years, who’s your favorite floral designer and why – the sky is the limit!

You have one week to send us your story, please email it in by August 8th, 2012.

We’ll post the stories on Flirty Fleurs on Monday, August 13th.
Judges will pick their favorite story and I’ll announce the winner later that week.

I can’t wait to hear your story!
info@flirtyfleurs.com

(This Giveaway is open to anyone, however, free shipping is only included within the lower 48 states. Should someone win that is not in the contiguous 48 states there will be a $12 shipping charge.)
