3 weeks later and (we are pretty sure) we've recovered enough to re-cap our little pop-up flower shop's Valentine's Day.
16 dozen roses, 125 carnations, 90 stems of ranunculus, 80 stems of stock, 20 different bunches of greens, tulips, and waxflower all unpacked onto the stoop of Sixth St. Popup & Gallery: Not necessarily an uncommon sight at 7:00am 4 days before Valentine's Day.
Valentine's Day holds a special place in our heart - not just because of the sentiment of the holiday, but because it also marks our first anniversary of working with Brick & Mortar Living!
Last Valentine's Day was a whirlwind. To say we were not prepared is an understatement. Learning from our mistakes, we made sure this year we were prepped, bouquets were made and wrapped and pre-orders sold out! (Say what?!)
Both the small and the large vase arrangements were the hot-ticket items for Valentine's 2016, for good reason. Shades of pinks, purples, and ivory were our jam this year and each arrangement had a gorgeous mix of these colours all arranged in a wild and romantic fashion - perfect for the holiday at hand. Our hobnail vases added that touch of vintage that everyone needs a little more of. We like 'em better than those boring old cube vases.
Once again, we had an amazing turn-out this year, even with the horrible pouring rain. Thank you so much to our customers who made it out to pick up their flowers for their special someone! Can't wait to do it all again next year. Speaking of next year, we want to hear from you! Let us know what you want to see for next year and we'll do our darndest to get it on the menu.
Well, finally, we have a functional blog to go along with our pretty little website. Check here for updates on the shop, and little peeks into some of the weddings and events we help put together.
