It's the dog days of summer here at Floral Expressions. As always, Miley, our greeter has been enjoying the porch and looking forward to greeting our customers.
The shop has been constantly changing its looks with new plants, silk arrangements and paintings. Something is always being created. Mari Lynne and her daughter Adriyel Anna have been heading out to the Wednesday night Farmers market at Horicon during these summer months. Unfortunately there has been a lot of rain nights. But on the lighter note we have added a lot of macrame wall hangings to sell and macrame jewelry for the farmers market sales.
Adriyel has finished her college degree in Studio Arts and is joining
her mom, Mari Lynne and Gloria at the shop part time.
It has been fun training someone with such artistic talents. Needless to say she is quite good at designing and training is going fast. Adriyel being of the younger generation is getting us up to date on social media. So look for some great upgrades. Fall weddings are booking up fast. We have a lot of fun weddings coming up. I am so looking forward to them. This summer gave us a lot of fun weddings to do. Some in more traditional style, one was for a french chic look, one was themed Lord of the Rings, last week was Hawaiian themed, and the list goes on. It has been great to work with so many ideas and themes. The Hawaiian themed wedding was super fun. I learned so much about palm weaving and lei making during my trip to Hawaii last year when we took one of our daughters to drop off at Hawaii Pacific University and the couple was more than willing to let me have complete go at it for their wedding.
Have a great end of the summer. ml
