Every now and then I get a special little side project and I get to play! These little minis are going out as thank you gifts. And I’m thankful for that awesome fall nandina! .
.
But maybe I should have added a pop of red...

Someone just sent me this as a reference picture.... from one of my favorite weddings from this summer @salvageone! It’s happened a couple of times that potential clients reference my own work, but it’s so strange and humbling every time. Like, wow, I really have built a business that produces good work. And I’ve done a lot of it! .
Sometimes you have to look back in order to be able to look forward, ya know? Thankful for the reminder to stop and see how far I’ve come. ☺️

Free Flower Monday?

Those of you who have followed The Local Petaler from the start know that philanthropy is very important to me, and I have always wanted to have a business that gives back. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about profit 😆 but I need to find a way to merge profit and purpose... Another issue I am hoping to solve in my business is waste. There’s a TON of waste in the floral industry, and I want to do everything I can to minimize my impact, and hopefully inspire other florists to do the same.
SO, that said, I think I’ve found a solution for both! I’m still working on a name... maybe just “Free Flower Monday”? But I’m going to use my leftovers to make small arrangements to donate to local causes, nursing homes, care centers, etc. Though not exactly eliminating the waste, it certainly lets me use the flowers in a more thoughtful way (other than in the garbage can) that may just make someone’s day a little brighter.
This week’s arrangements are headed to LivingWell Cancer Resource Center via the wonderful Cloë Smith-Westphall and her awesome mama, Cheri Hunt. Thank you both for helping distribute!

If you’d like to help in the future, please let me know! I’d love to make this a community effort! Feel free to provide any and all suggestions too!

Thanks and have a great night! - Jen

Another festive post... and belated happy anniversary to Kia and Patrick! These guys also braved an October snowstorm but ON THEIR WEDDING DAY. It was absolutely beautiful and a hell of a party but... Whyyyy, snow, why??

This was a weekend of new attempts! I also tried just ribbon corsages because this ribbon was just soooo gorgeous (it’s called portobello btw)... I think they turned out well!!

I’m obsessed with these bridal party pics! So nice to see authentic storytelling in wedding photography! Everyone looks like they’re having a blast... because they ARE! Who knew?! @thekismetcollective truly captures her clients’ love story and their celebration with friends and family. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 .

Ok, so this was my first, and awful, attempt at photo editing with @snapseedaily... needs work. Anyone have tips or go-to’s when editing floral?
.
Side note: this is my raffle item for tonight’s Fall Open House @thehaight!

Bridesmaids’... that #cappuccinorose was a perfect compliment to Jennifer and Brian’s coffee and literature themed wedding yesterday @thehaight! .
Shout out to @craftdonutscoffee for their donut wall! I love a good donut at a wedding! .

Happy #2yearsanniversary to @kturriff and @britt.turriff, my favorite brother and sister-in-law! I know it’s worked out so far mostly due to my amazing ministerial skills, so you’re welcome! ☺️
.
FYI my #licensetowed is good for another 2 years, so you can make it a package deal when you sign your floral contract 😂 .

This was a tough one... Seeded eucalyptus is not my friend right now!! But it’s finished - huge thanks to my mom, Pam, for helping me today! She’s the best assistant I’ve ever had... also the only assistant I’ve ever had really. 😊
