225 Flowers in 3 Days...

I received a phone call last week from an unexpected venue and they are doing something for an upcoming event and saw my flowers in the Fall issue of Inside Weddings and asked if I would sponsor 225 white anemones with pink centers to go with their color palette for the event. this is just a small fraction of the flowers I made in ONLY 3 days!!!

Needless to say, I had moments of self doubt, moments I wanted to throw in the towel and forget it, but thankfully I am done and managed to get 235 flowers done in the time frame I had in order to let them dry enough before they ship on Thursday. Thank you to my husband for his encouragement and support as to why I had to do this. I hope to share more in the coming weeks about what this is for! If it weren't for him and taking care of our 5 year old, making the meals and keeping the house in order, I wouldn't have been able to get it all done.

WHOAH, that's no small feat! You've done a wonderful job, and managed to stay calm under pressure! (Seriously, I think I might have exploded. LOL) Awesome work, as always! :)
