{ Team Fleuriste Spotlight } Taylor

 

Taylor came to work for us after Jake won her over in a local cable access version of The Bachelorette. We’re still wondering…..

When she’s not off learning nurse-ish type things, she is here helping to keep the show running on the floral side. Taylor does a lot of our processing when we receive flowers and is trying her hand in designing. She has quickly become a valuable part of the team and if we can convince her to leave nursing to work here forever, we’d all be very happy. We recently had an impromptu conversation in which she was unaware I was recording, the following is what is appropriate to share:

Taylor what is your favorite flower to work with?
T: I love peonies and garden roses. I love how peonies add something to every arrangement, and I had never seen garden roses before and I fell in love with them!

What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work and when you’re avoiding Jake?
T: I like reading and running and yoga { Note to self: don’t attempt these three activities at the same time. It doesn’t work }

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
T: Neon Trees! I saw them at the Brady in Tulsa. They’re not my favorite band, but they put on an amazing show!

{ Field Trip Friday } Amy Cakes

Today’s Field Trip Friday could be my favorite so far because hello, cake samples! The team from Amy Cakes and the team from The Fleuriste have worked together on some pretty incredible weddings so I had to check them out, outside of event day, and get a behind-the-scenes look at their operation!

Amy, also known as “Cake Mom” of Amy Cakes, has been in business since 2004. Her passion for sweets started in the bakery section of Albertson’s when she was 19. {But even before that? She worked with flowers for four years! No wonder our businesses get along so well.} As the business has grown, so have the cakes. I’ll never forget the six foot cake at the #LeaveItToBeavers wedding this summer! The base was 30” wide and fed 500 people! It was a total showstopper.

{ Field Trip Friday } Amy CakesI had to ask my favorite #FieldTripFriday question: “What is the biggest diva moment you’ve had with a bride?” Amy’s take is…brides are delightful but the mother of the bride can be a different story. After all, moms envision a daughter’s wedding as soon as she is  born, so passion can get the best of them! {I just had a daughter and can totally attest to the accuracy of this statement…sorry future wedding vendors…}

{ Field Trip Friday } Amy CakesI giggled at the notion of Amy Cakes‘ team not having a favorite flavor. Undeniably, they agree their cake is best; but apparently, you really can have too much of a good thing. {all sweets addicts are recoiling in horror right now} Creating 70 wedding cakes in May and June alone might make me feel the same way! Just kidding…I would totally love every sugary bite.
