Be grateful on Mondays

Being grateful on Mondays is a big deal at My Little Flower Shop for a few reasons.

  • Having just come off an amazing weekend full of wedding and parties,  we feel honored to be a part of the life of our clients and our community.
  • As a result, we have a thriving business.  We work hard, and we’re thankful for all that our hard work has brought us.
  • We work with the earth’s most beautiful creations: flowers.  To come to work every day to a shop full of beautiful blooms is a blessing.  Cubicles just aren’t our style.
  • Did I mention how amazing a community we are a part of? Other businesses, business organizations, friends, family…

With all that is good in our lives, being depressed about a day of the week just isn’t logical.  So, happy Monday everyone, thanks for sharing it with us.

 

Be well and love well,

Tossing the Bouquet Toss – All The Single Ladies (and gents) Will Thank You.

At some the end of some weddings, a bouquet is tossed to a crowd of happy singletons. Right? Often though, when a DJ turns up the Beyonce and puts out the call, eligible folks disappear into the woodwork.  When I was on wedding attendant duty, I always found that was a perfect time to sprinkle rose petals in the honeymoon suite. Honestly, unmarried people want nothing to do with this archaic tradition.pink bouquet

Fear not, Newlyweds! You can ceremonially dispose of flowers without setting your single friends’ teeth on edge. Try this: instead of throwing your flowers at someone, which is a little hostile when you think about it, GIVE them to a person you wish to honor.  Grandma, Honor Attendant, childhood best friend, you pick. We at MLFS even make you a “toss” bouquet so you can keep your own gorgeous bouquet for yourself!

I’m betting you have a guest who’d be thrilled with a special posy. And trust me, there are singles who will be thrilled with not having their marital status paraded around the dance floor.

Be well, and love well.

Little Flower Girl, Big Wedding Dreams.

Little girls have big wedding dreams and unlimited imaginations.  Now look at that from a different perspective. You want the person designing your wedding to have…big wedding dreams and unlimited imaginations. Hey, look! In-house wedding planners unfettered by budget or reality! Let them tell you all their thoughts and dreams and stories. And when the wild dream of a cotton candy dress becomes a cotton candy cart at the reception, you’ll know who to thank. With a big fat ball of cotton candy

Be well, and love well.
