I always thought working in a flower shop would be romantic. Being surrounded by the smells & colors would be so appealing. I had never arranged fresh flowers by myself before. I occasionally buy pre-made arrangements or a grouping of fresh flowers of some sort. I started by picking out the green hydrangea. I heard that is a good base to start with. By the way, I get all of my floral advice from Haleigh Kenny of XO Events and Design. She is a amazing. I love whites and soft pinks, so I picked up some pink and white lilies. I was drawn to this ice blue stout vase, so I took that home with me too. I cut the stems short and then even shorter. I had little to no idea what I was doing. But I had fun doing it and I'm pretty proud of my first solo attempt!
