Fleur Friday

Happy Fleur Friday!

I have to tell all you that I just giggled all day on April 1st, giggled as I read all the comments on the blog, on Facebook and on Twitter about the “Rainbow Rose Color Study”. Really made April Fools’ day fun! 🙂

I just have to share this story with all of you, it is so sweet – “The Queen’s Ring” via Delaware Valley Wholesale Florist.

The Missing Ring!

A totally different article I came across and one that I think so many of you will find interesting. As we know, so much of what we see online is ‘Smoke & Mirrors’. It is so easy to think everyone else has it so easy, only designing perfect weddings w/ perfect people with the most perfect flowers available. Surely ‘so & so’ never struggles with a crazy MOB, never has a bit of income flow problems, never is up at midnight trying to figure out how to get more Cafe Au Lait Dahlias because the local source is sold out or a hail storm came through and ruined the crop. Right?
Well, this article about the passing of L’Wren Scott and the tragic side of NYC’s glitzy scene reveals a lot about how many people appear to live the life, but are really struggling. I found the part about a writer to be particularly interesting. Read the article here.
