The past two days have been filled with lots of flowers. We went to the L.A. flower mart to pick up a whole bunch for my sister’s wedding and I spent most of today putting things together with my mama by my side. I remember when I used to come more frequently to the flower mart to do florals for weddings. I really enjoyed it back then and my mom and I used to work wee into the night preparing. Those were good times with my mom. She is such a trooper.
I worked at a flower shop all through high school and a bit during college, as well as an arranging course, so working with my flowers is one of my favorite things. I still know the names to most of the flowers and I really miss it, but I do think doing weddings are much more stressful now with four kids. It would be so lovely to be able to do things like Chelsea of Frolic. She makes the loveliest arrangements. I so would love to be her assistant!
All I have left to do for my sister’s wedding is bake a strawberry shortcake, make her bouquet and hair wreath, and write my MOH toast. Can’t believe it, but we have one day left! Saturday will be here before you know it.
