Blooming Details March Newsletter
Hi Florist Friend,
As a florist, is there any other season in the year that is more magnificent than Spring? The blooming flowers and greenery that once again pepper the landscape are surely a feast for the eyes! It's truly a beautiful transformation. Take some time to smell the newly budding flowers and read all The Blooming Details. Happy Spring!
The Great Lakes Floral & Event Expo
We had just one regret from the Great Lakes Floral and Event Expo. Can you guess what it is? One of us did not get to don that luscious floral and feather gown, of course!! It was an amazing expo, with even more amazing florists and event designers. For those of you that stopped by our Details Flowers booth, or participated in the Wild Weddings seminar, thank you! Definitely check out Michigan Floral Association's Facebook page for some astonishing photos showcasing the expo. Here's a few snapshots of the weekend! Oh, we can't forget to mention we won Best In Show for our Trade Show Exhibit! #GOTEAMDETAILS! We can't end without a special shout-out to Heather Grit, owner of Glamour & Grit in Grand Rapids, MI for helping us out all weekend. Thank you!
