My career as a floral designer has begun!
Here was my schedule today:
6:30AM- Wake up & Get Ready
7:45AM- Pick up the Zip Car
8:00AM- Head over to the Boston Flower Exchange
8:10AM- Walk into Heaven!
There were so many different flower wholesalers to choose from. I had just the best time looking at all of the different varieties of flowers. I think I could’ve spent the entire day in there.
I decided on a cream and plum color palate for my arrangements.
9:10AM- Head over to Jacobson’s Floral Supply
Jacobson’s has all of the floral materials that you would ever need (Vases, Ribbon, Floral Tape, Etc.)
9:50AM- Head back home
10:00AM- Start processing the flowers
I bought refrigerator buckets to store the flowers in and also bought plant food to keep the flowers fresh for tomorrow. I made sure to trim the flowers to make sure they can absorb water then I placed them in water and stored them in the refrigerator.
10:45AM- Treat myself to Panera Bread!
Here are some photos of the beautiful flowers I bought today!
Aren’t they just wonderful!? I think I got a little overly excited and bought way to many flowers! Oh well 🙂
Next up: Tomorrow I will be showing you the finished product!
