One thing I love about writing this blog…I’m constantly blown away by the creativity and talent of these floral artists and photographers! How do they continue to come up with these original and very impressive ideas? Does their creativity ever run dry? Where do they find inspiration? Maybe we’ll just have to ask them…

‘Amnesia’ roses are a unique blend of dusty lavender with green highlights. What do you think? Like the muted tone or prefer something different? What’s your favorite color rose?

A side note: This was the first time we ever used ‘Polar Star’ roses from Eufloria Flowers and I would highly recommend them. ‘Polar Star’ is a winter white and opens to a large flawless bloom…just beautiful!

Hope everyone had a great Valentine’s weekend…
