Another week of amazing and breathtaking arrangements for your viewing pleasure. These florists have put winter in their collective rear-view mirrors and are striding forward into spring with some truly magnificent pieces.
Growing up in Detroit my family attended weekly church services at a gorgeous gothic cathedral on Woodward Avenue one block from the Detroit Institute of Arts . Even then I sensed the respect, awe, and wonder that still surrounds the DIA . When an opportunity to create floral designs for the DIA presented itself naturally I jumped all over it!! This is a museum of epic proportions, among the top six collections in the United States with over 100 galleries, a 1,150 seat auditorium, an art reference library and state of the art conservation services laboratory
Victor West, owner of Vanessaâ€™s Flowers in Plymouth, MI, is known among friends and other Michigan florists as the â€śnumbers guyâ€ť. He was the kid who attended computer camp in 1975, went to school for accounting and business and then chose to open a flower shop over 22 years ago because he â€śthought it would be easy.â€ť He quickly learned differently on that last point
Thereâ€™s only one thing better than having a baby, and thatâ€™s having two! Thatâ€™s what happened to Flower Shop Network employee Joe Teasley and his wife Kelly. They were recently blessed with two beautiful additions to their family in Brody (boy) and Kodie (girl). To celebrate, Flower Shop Network decided to host a baby shower in their honor! (I have it on good authority that no babies were actually showered at the event.) A cake of congratulations! You canâ€™t see from this photo, but the cake itself was half blue and half pink
With Valentineâ€™s Day in the books (and I hope yours was a successful one), we have a ton of exciting arrangements for you this week!
