Not about hotel venues

I completely erased a rant over hotel venues.  I think I purged my pique.  Enough said that I won't be doing Boston Hotel weddings again. Period.

So instead, I'll tell you about Mother's Day, my favorite holiday of the year.  Jen over at Country Weekend hooked us up with some great vintage jars a few months ago and we're going to fill them with the prettiest flowers a Mother could want as our prepared arrangement offering for walk in customers.

We'll be open until 6:00 on Friday and Saturday and on Sunday we'll be open at 9:00 and we'll stay until every last Mother's child has secured their flowers.

There's a new David Austin rose coming in.  We'll have a lot of yellow this year and lavender and purple and pinks and orange.  The peonies will be plentiful and beautiful, and we'll have little orchids for plant loving Moms.

Here are some Instagram photos I took recently of the rabbits and a home we decorated for a wedding shower.

Max finds the hay bucket

Alice is too big for her chew tube: Max can wiggle right through his.

Bride's bouquets for each of four windows.

The shop looks like hell, so after planting up some boxes on Beacon Hill, we'll be cleaning house - probably for a few days, and hopefully continuing the bonding sessions with Alice and Petals.

No more hotel weddings. ever.

Wish you'd saved your hotel rant!

Max in the hay bucket is a keeper--you should have a bunnies in the flower shop calendar.

Maybe you could enlighten us about the hotel wedding when you're less stressed :)

I guess the hay bucket has to be kept elsewhere since Max found it?

I can't wait to see some images of your Mothers Day flowers. I bet they're going to be stunning.
That Max is ever so cute, bucket and all. x

Max. That's all I can say.

I like a home wedding.

But mainly I like party work.

More centerpieces, less corsages.

And a venue adding stress?

Sic the Mother of the bride on 'em, they're often spoiling for a fight.

Oh Max looks so cuddly in the bucket. I think the hotel rant would have been very entertaining!
