Floral Blog- Thistle & Birch
Join us here every week to learn more about our business, upcoming events & what we've been up to...xo
Well that was nuts... LOL
The 2 Open House wedding shows that we had been prepping for took place this past weekend. Days of planning, preparation and organizing were necessary in order to schedule setting up and being at both booths during overlapping times and then tearing down, and it was not an easy feat hahaha.
On Friday with the help of my trusty assistant (also known as my husband), I loaded up my van and set off to Collingwood with a crazy good country playlist. When I arrived, I unloaded at both venues, got my tables ready, and got to meet the sweetest vendors from neighbouring booths, this is also where I got my cardio in for the weekend!
Then 2 of my girlfriends/employees met me at the Beautiful Living Waters Hotel and we had some good old fashioned girl time with loads of marketing work mixed in...and a little bit of wine...until 2am.
Saturday Morning the hotel room looked just as you'd imagine it would and everybody still had their hair to do but we didn't have to leave until 10:30 so that was definitely our saving grace.
Stationed 2 to a booth, one of my fantastic florists joined us and we got to mingle and meet brides and grooms all day while reppin our new Thistle and Birch shirts- and it was a blast. We gave out flowers and bath bombs and got to talk about everything floral related while also tasting all the yummy appetizers that were going around #jobperk.
Needless to say by 6pm we were spent and ready to kick our shoes off but we felt so fulfilled and just grateful for this wonderful opportunity.
There ain't no life like the #florallife.
Until next week... <3
