The Earth Laughs in Flowers

One of my favorite quotes for the Flower Shop to use for newsletters, Facebook, emails, etc., is
"[The] earth laughs in flowers."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
This quote says everything that I feel about my job. Flowers are fun, festive, and spunky. Most of the people that I have delivered flowers to have been excited to get an arrangement. They look joyful and pleased that someone has thought of them.

I agree with Mr.Emerson. If flowers were to be any sort of expression of the earth, they would be laughter. Pure, exuberant, throw-your-head-back, wildly musical laughter. Flowers are great that way. They are care free and spirited.

White and purple Calla lilies. 

My favorite color hydrangea: White!

Mixed arrangement: a semi paved.

Well we are currently in the process of rearranging the store. It's time to give the store a face-lift now that it is June. I will hopefully have some pictures of all the awesome tweaks and lifts that we are doing in the store. As always, you can take a look at the Pinterest board that goes along with this post by clicking here.
If you could only have one flower in an arrangement what would it be?

  1. Such beautiful white and purple Calla lilies. I will also be ordering a bouquet of mixed arrangement for my sister’s birthday from an online Flower Delivery shop. Last time I had used their services and they had impressed me a lot with their quality services.
