Destination Florida - Operation Wedding

If you keep up with us on Facebook then you know that three of the Lisa Foster Floral Design Team headed to Amelia Island, Florida to work a destination wedding for our former employee and friend Emily Williams. Lisa, Jennifer and Kim packed up early Thursday, August 25 to drive nine hours.
If anyone hasn't stopped at the Florida Welcome Station to get the free OJ and/or Grapefruit juice, word to the wise try the grapefruit before the orange juice. It was Lisa's first time ever visiting the Welcome Center and she loved it!
Once we arrived at the condo we had the welcome wagon waiting for us. The Georgia State Floral Distributors' Daryl met us and had everything ready for us to dive right into. The colors of the flowers were absolutely phenomenal! They really went to great lengths to ensure we were happy with the flowers and that we had enough.  Right away we started cutting, pulling, cleaning and separating the flowers.  Literally we hit the ground running! After getting the rehearsal dinner flowers finished (at 2:00am) we hit the hay so we could start again in the morning.
Friday, we worked all day getting everything done. Lisa tackled the bouquets for Emily and the bridesmaids. Jennifer had the reception centerpieces under control and Kim handled the boutonnieres and corsages.  After delivering the rehearsal dinner flowers we had a chance to drive and see the island a little bit on our way back to finish the flowers. We had to finish all of the flowers before we went to bed Friday night since we had to deliver everything by 8:00am Saturday morning.
Saturday morning, we delivered the girls bouquets and other people flowers then ran to make sure the reception at Walker's Landing had the finishing touches.
The wedding ceremony was beautiful and the three Lisa Foster Floral Girls were teary eyed. It was perfect, Emily made a stunning bride and Andrew was a very handsome groom! You could just tell how happy the two of them are and will be.  Below are a few photos of our weekend excursion. We can't wait to see the professional photos from Andrea Taylor Studio.

Gift Idea - Spa Wrap

While at Market in Atlanta last month we ordered some very cute and practical spa wraps. They are made from the same waffle material as our spa robes and come in a wide variety of colors! All the shop girls fell in love with them and a few weeks ago we received our order! The great thing is that they would make a great gift for multiple occasions, or for yourself.  If you have started your Christmas shopping which there is only 128 days left these are awesome stocking stuffers for college students and teens! We also have other accessories to go with the robes and wraps.
