I don’t want to start all of my posts with an apology, so let’s just skip that part. Let’s pretend it’s acceptable that I’ve been ostensibly absent from the internet for months and get on with happy, pretty stuff like flowers and cupcake towers, K?
If you’ve been following me forever, you might remember my unattractive meltdown about doing my own flowers for my Peter Pan Party back in 2012. If you haven’t been reading that long, consider yourself lucky. (Self pity is not attractive.)
I’m like a new person now or something.
I recently went to the flower district downtown and almost died from a peony OD.
If you’re wondering how someone who hates one-way streets and $5-an-hour parking meters ended up downtown, I will tell you.
My friend Susan needed help with the flowers for her mother-in-law’s birthday dinner, and for some reason she thought I could help her. I love Susan so super much that I got over my issues with downtown and went with her to the flower district.
It’s pretty amazing to go from nearly curling up in the fetal position at the thought of putting poppies in a vase to having someone ask you to do floral arrangements for their MIL’s 70th.
Here’s my handiwork:
And just for fun, I also did an arrangement for my friend Sarah’s upcoming 80’s party.
So, that’s me and my flower update.
I’ve come a long way, right?
