I have to admit – I can breath a sign of relief now. For me, the whole spring season leads up to Mother’s Day and then it’s downhill into summer. Don’t get me wrong – there’s plenty to do until then.  I’m hoping to get a few more classes in,  more writing, make more bouquets, and prep the beds for the summer. Now that I put it in writing, that really sounds like A LOT.  LOL.

Back to Mother’s Day… Our friends at The Grove hosted FarmGal for bouquet making. Wow – we had a really fun crowd come in: best friends, moms and daughters, sisters made bouquets for their moms. Some moms popped in to pick up their own bouquets. Nothing wrong with that – I like a woman who knows what she wants! The Grove monogrammed vases which we filled with flowers  (what a great gift – keep that one in mind for the future).  New friend Elizabeth from The Golden Spindle was there and provided FREE embroidery. I loved the flower bouquet and embroidered pajamas combo that some husbands picked out. You can’t go wrong with that gift!

Then we headed over to Williams-Sonoma Winter Park the next day for our third Mother’s Day Pop-Up there. The friendly faces at WS have always been so hospitable to us. Always ready and willing to help. Boy were we busy! Lots of long time customers came in. I always love catching up with them. I finally met some social media friends in person who quickly felt like old friends. Lots of people came and went off with our bouquets. We sold all of our pre-made bouquets and I made as many bouquets as I could with the buckets of stems that we brought. Nothing was left! We also sold super cute mini succulent gardens paired in William-Sonoma‘s Mother’s Day mugs. I’ve always loved this idea and whenever I use my mug, I’m reminded of Mother’s Day.

 

 

Last Sunday was the last day of the Parade of Homes Orlando. We had been providing the flowers for Z Properties‘ AMAZING home at 1160 Mayfield.  Most of you know that I like color. That’s an understatement. I LOVE color!  1160 Mayfield is full of color and our flowers fit right in.

Oh, I forgot to mention that FarmGal was featured on Houzz.com last week, “Slow Flowers for Mother’s Day 2018.” Thank you so much for including us Debra Prinzing! I’d also like to thank everyone who came out and supported FarmGal at our workshop, pop-up and/or visited 1160 Mayfield. I so appreciated the comments, messages and photos that were sent to me too. Well as I mentioned earlier,  the season is not quite over yet. There are some classes in the works. I can tell you that there will be a seasonal wreath workshop at Leu Gardens on June 16th. Think herbs, eucalyptus, dried flowers and more! We’ll use those soft touch wreath frames that everyone loved at our holiday wreath class. See you again soon friends!
