Give Flowers When She LEAST Expects It

Tuesday the 14th I met with my former classmate, Bayardo and basic floral design teacher, Adrienne for dinner to catch up on life and “happenings” in the floral industry. Bayardo traveled all the way from Israel to stay in MD for one month so when I found out I knew I had to purchase a ticket ASAP to see him. This short trip was totally worth every penny spent and so much more.

Wednesday, January.15,2014 I returned home to Fort Lauderdale, FL . Nick & Zen picked me up at the airport

and to my surprise I was gifted with flowers.



Flowers given “JUST BECAUSE” have a huge impact


they are UNEXPECTED 🙂

For the most part women always remember the last time she received flowers.

So whether you are trying to get “out of the dog house”, “just because” or a simple “thinking of you” 

Flowers make women feel beautiful so start giving today !

Everything seems to be hotter in Miami especially when you are surrounded by some of the best artists in the industry. The past holds tons of memories and I’m considering creating new ones at this years Symposium since I did not attend last year.

Just about every day, every week I get wonderful flower thoughts from J Schwanke of uBloom. If you have not signed up, I highly recommend starting off the New Year right and doing so. This morning’s flower thought was titled ” What is Your FAVORITE Flower ?? ” and while I get asked this question ALOT since I am a floral designer, many still do not know.

Well, the cat is now out of the bag …

My FAVORITE flower is the Phalaenopsis Orchid.



They are long lasting and can grow in almost any climate.

Have a graceful appearance and potted orchids make a perfect gift for any occasion.

Orchids look perfect in any floral arrangement, but bouquets in particular for the way the blooms stay nice and flat.
