Goodbye 2017. Hello 2018!

2017. Where do I begin?

A new baby, flood repairs, lots of weddings and sweet brides as well as connecting with new wedding professionals sums up 2017 for us!

NEW BABY

Let's start with our new addition, Scarlett Kate! She was born on August 15 which was, coincidentally, the one year anniversary of the 2016 flood that devastated our little community. She was born healthy and happy, but has been a LOT of work since then! People aren't kidding when they say the second child is a game changer. I haven't slept well since the 2nd trimester of my pregnancy! My apologies in advance if I have trouble composing a sentence or call you by the wrong name. Ha! Kids are no joke! Since her arrival, I've been working a lot from home while Becky has been working from our cute and freshly renovated flower shop.

FLOWER SHOP RENOVATIONS

Finally, after over a year, our flower shop has been renovated! Back in 2016, Becky's home as well as our flower shop flooded. We were in survival mode from day one and hit our Fall and Spring wedding seasons hard. Summer arrived and we were able to breathe long enough to finish our flower shop renovations and prepare for the arrival of Baby Scarlett.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FLORIST

2017 brought us beautiful flowers, great opportunities and sweet brides trusting us to design their wedding day flowers. That's what it's all about after all!

Kaylie from Kaylie Nicole Photography stopped by during the height of our busy October wedding season to capture a day at the flower shop. Here are some of our favorites!

STYLED PHOTO SHOOTS

We were lucky enough to be featured in Southern Bride and Southern Celebrations magazines along with some amazing wedding vendors!

REAL WEDDINGS

Roses, ranunculus, eucalyptus, blush pink and rose gold...those are just a few of the wedding trends of 2017!

Hello 2018!

In 2018, I hope that I can make great growth both personally and professionally. I will be focusing on my children first and foremost while also continuing to build professional relationships with fabulous wedding vendors in southern Louisiana and all of our upcoming 2018 & 2019 brides. My mom, Becky, and I would love the opportunity to design for those brides who'd love a creative, stylish and hard-working floral team. We are constantly evolving and improving our designs, expanding our repertoire by trying new things and making the best possible experience for our brides. We appreciate the opportunities that 2017 brought us and we look forward to growing even more in 2018! Thanks for all of your continued support and encouragement over the years. Here's to a fantastic 2018!

 

Hugs & Kisses,

Randee & Becky

2017 Update!

2017 Update: Since flooding in August 2016, we have been in survival mode! Between getting Becky's home renovated after the flood, our wedding workload in 2016/2017 and expecting a baby, we have been busy to say the least. It's finally time to take care of our little flooded flower shop! We made quick repairs to get our flower shop functioning after the flood, but it hasn't been pretty. We are closing the entire month of August to get our flower shop renovated back to a cute little cottage as well as enjoy the upcoming arrival of my baby girl. During this time, we will be slightly delayed in responding to your emails, social media messages and phone messages. We will get back to you as soon as possible! Once everything returns to normal, if there is a "normal", I plan on continuing the monthly blog featuring our beautiful brides on their wedding day. Regular business will resume in September and I'll be back to work for the start of our busy fall wedding season in October. We appreciate all of your support and understanding during this difficult year! I promise to post photos of our flower shop once it's finished. :)

Hugs & Kisses,

Randee
