Thankyou i appreciate that, I spend ALL day cutting in our new product- tomorrow i'm going to get a head start and go ahead and fix up a ton of arrangements....i'll make more as the week progresses- especially on Tuesday. Most people wait until Wednesday (valentines day) to get flowers thinking "i want to get them "new" while they're fresh." when in reality- just about every single order that goes out on Valentines day in most shops gets made on Mon/Tues because of time. It keeps well though as long as you cut it in right and fix it properly. (I always add preservatives to my arrangements - it extends their life...we gurantee our product to last because we want our customers to be happy...so i'm a stickler about the way my arrangements are made/kept. We got some gorgeous tulips in today -so i'm going to make a few pieces tomorrow with those!
We also got GORGEOUS roses and lilies in too!!
I love desigining. I'm hoping i get that new job soon (the one i started a thread about so that i can save up enough cash to start my own shop soon.) ./ I will say it does get frusterating though because everyone waits till the last minute with no consideration that the florists might like a nice romatic dinner too
But ah that's the joy of Valentines day in a flower shop
Colin and I will probably just grab dinner or something the day after- it doesn't have to be on that day for it to be special - but hey it'd be nice
Till then- i have tons of work to do. I'm pulling a really long shift the rest of the week getting everything ready. My displays are ready to go and looking gorgeous!
If i have time i'll snap a few pictures of my designs tomorrow if i remember
