It's always so amazing to me when I get this sudden urge to change everything about myself. It happens every so often and it could be really with anything.. new wardrobe.. new stuff for the apartment.. new work-out.. new diet. I mean seriously, I go through this like 5 times a year and I don't know if anyone else feels this way but when I do, I can't fight it. I am definitely on a path of change lately mainly because I started a new job as the wedding/events coordinator for Scott's Flowers in Manhattan. I am in charge of their social media and am learning a lot about that as well as taking on new ways of designing. I am so immersed now in turning the company I work for into a success that I figured while I'm promoting them, I should be promoting myself as well. So, I am working on a new blog/website and I just hope it all works out! Here's some whimsical designing I've been creating.. oh the possibilities!!

One of my favorite things to do is wake up early in the morning.. head over to the new york city flower market and go crazy!!! I recently had that opportunity while I planned and designed flower arrangements for my sisters bridal shower. Oh how I loved creating something out of nothing.. really didn't know what design I was going to do, I just knew I wanted to do something pretty, fresh and bridal of course! Browsing through all the flowers.. it was hard to know what I was going to get but dahlias always win me over along with pink garden roses, antique hydrangea, light pink and white hydrangeas, light peach spray roses and brutia with seeded eucalyptus. All combined really helped to add to the amazing, elegant and joyful day!

There is nothing like being a part of a wedding.. but being the floral designer and maid of honor at your best friends wedding is pretty darn special. It was so amazing to be able to create the perfect arrangements for my bestie and being that we are both floral designers, it was super fun as well and inspiring! It truly was a wedding to remember!
A lot of what is in these arrangements came from the Boston Flower Market but some hydrangeas and leaves and grasses were hand-picked. The majority of flowers used were thistle, garden roses, yellow ranunculus, seeded eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus, yellow james storie orchids, asclepia, scabiosa, viburnum berry, picked hydrangeas and picked grass as well as brunia.

In life we have a lot of them.. ups and downs that is. Even though we all have the power to make good decisions and succeed, we also all have the power to fail. I recently got let go from my new job and although, this was an extremely horrifying experience, I have realized that it is probably for the better. I loved the process of learning what it would be like to work in a real "high end" floral design shop and that alone was a success in my mind. Sometimes personalities clash and this is unfortunate but it happens. I realized through all of this though that life can be hard but taking the time to re-focus is important. I finally feel like I am back on track and can take life on again. So, here is to new jobs and creating a new floral design/event company. This blog will now be used as a way to target new clients. Oh Life.. you are a beautiful struggle,. happier days are ahead.
Seriously have felt out of sorts for a few weeks but starting to feel better again!
