had such fun getting ready for our AGM…

had planned to have a friend prepare the flowers for the event but that fell through… luckily she gave me some great pointers…

yesterday I went to the floral area at Safeway and hoped to get some design help from Michelle, the florist on duty…

I showed her one of the vases that we were planning to use and the basic design I’d been given… once we chose the flowers she was able to make me a sample… helped with how tall to cut the flowers, where to add the greenery, etc… she was amazing and put everything into a bucket for me and boxed up the sample…

filled the back of the car with flowers and it smelled like a flower shop as I drove home…

when I got home I sent a picture to my friend to see if the arrangement looked similar to what she had planned…

she thought it looked great, which helped make me feel better about the whole thing, lol…

packed up the bucket and box and took everything to the office this morning…

spent a lovely time putting together the arrangements… and they came out great, thanks to a colleague who finished them off with ribbons…

they looked great on the tables… simple but pretty…

afterwards I put a bouquet in each of the helpers’ offices;-)…

flowers make me happy
