This weekend I set out and went shopping for flowers and supplies for a dry run just to make sure that I can deliver on my offer. I had a couple of little missteps-like buying the wrong type of floral foam-but I think I did pretty well on my first try. I learned a few things that I will use when I create the real deal in August. I'd never gone anything to this scale so I was a little nervous!
Here's the bucket of flowers ready to be arranged.
And ta-da! This is the result. It's a pretty big arrangement and costs about $40 to make-a much better price tag than the $200 we were quoted.
I made Michael hold the bouquet up so I can take a picture to send to my sister. He was not amused and grudgingly agreed. Love that little monkey is drinking my Sonic drink like it was his.
Then Mark wanted a turn. Yes, he's not wearing any pants.
