Valentine窶冱 Day has come and gone and the last 4 days were somewhat of a blur, a beautiful red-rose filled blur. I meant to post a photo of our bouquets but in the shuffle, I totally spaced it! We sold out every single stem we had in the cooler, but, selfishly, I kept I few of these beautiful anthuriums for myself. It窶冱 called 窶廴arijke窶 and I窶冦 obsessing with that color! I hope everyone has a beautiful Valentines Day! #florist #theflowerhat #valentinesday #love #beautiful #follow #nofilter

I was SO excited when I received a copy of @tulipinadesign book in the mail last week! Kiana has been an inspiration for many, many years and I窶况e always admired her work, so to receive this book, published by @chroniclebooks, was exhilarating, to say the least! As you can see, I窶况e already got pages flagged, and  since I窶冦 in the peak of booking/wedding proposal season, I窶况e found myself going thru this book over and over for inspiration! Kiana窶冱 play on monochromatic techniques through arrangements that visit each season is nothing short of a dream, and her effortless style makes this book a must-have if you are in the wedding industry or if you窶况e just got a passion for beautiful flower! It also makes a great gift; it窶冱 impossible not to love the flower-filled pages of this book. My head melts every page I turn! It comes out March 6th and You can pre-order it on Amazon right now, I highly recommend it! #florist #tulipina #colormefloralbook #floraldesign#inspiration #color #beautiful

Tonight, I head back to @rockymountaincollege to receive the award for Outstanding Alumni of the Year! I built this company from a question and a dream. The Question, which I asked Harper and Madison owner Joanie, was 窶忤ould you like to have weekly fresh flowers in your cafe?窶. Little did I know that question would completely change my life. In seven years, I窶况e built a company that I am so proud of, that is a part of many couples窶 most special day, and I never have to 窶忤ork窶 again! But it all started with a dream and that dream was born on that campus, where I learned how inquisitiveness and curiosity will open doors, where stepping out of your comfort zone could show you the possibilities of the unknown and where friendships were made for a lifetime. I cherish those years and will always take with me the knowledge and tools I learned to be a better person. Thank you Rocky! #alumni #flowerfarmer #farmerflorist #business #grateful
