{ 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!

Once Upon A Time…

…there was a teenage girl who dreamed about her wedding. Today’s bride, Nishay, planned her ‘Happily Ever After’ when she was only 15 years old and brought the proof { what we’ll now refer to as THE binder } to our first consultation. This fairytale wedding included not only one modern princess and her prince charming, but also our favorites: lush flowers and dreamy details.

Nishay’s passion for posh blooms was evident by the large section of THE binder devoted just to flowers. All of spring’s best were needed to create this storybook wedding. { peonies, sweat pea, hydrangea, garden roses and ranunculus…just to name a few } Based on Nishay’s reaction upon entering the ballroom, #TeamFleuriste nailed it!

Romantic floral designs spilling from silver vessels in shades of blush, ivory and champagne accented the room. Cascading flowers topped the delicious five-tiered ivory cake while the sweetest floral crown topped the head of one very special flower girl! { Perhaps Nishay will pass on her love of weddings and we’ll see her flower girl toting her own wedding binder one day? }

Happily Ever After has never looked so happy. Congratulations Nishay & Anthony! To see more of their dream wedding, view the full gallery on our website.

{ Field Trip Friday } OKC Golf & Country Club

Fridays are for fun and what’s a part of Team Fleuriste’s fun? Field Trips! We love an excuse to get away from our desks { especially before a long weekend! } so today we’re getting out of the office and talking to Tracy Johnson, Event Director, at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club.

Callie & Matthew tracy.johnson014 Callie & Matthew

For the past three years, Tracy has been responsible for overseeing all events at the club including everything from the annual member Christmas party to managing outside vendors during weddings. We can certainly say from experience, Tracy and her team make sure each event is executed perfectly!

Speaking of managing vendors, Team Fleuriste knows that we are Tracy’s favorite { obviously… } but when asked if she could agree with that statement, she diplomatically responded that her motto is “we are all a team so each vendor that comes in is treated like a part of the OKCGCC team to create the perfect event. I am truly enjoying developing friendships with the vendors here in OKC.” We suppose this response makes her job easier when she works with other vendors but we’ll always know the truth!

It goes without saying that planning events is a busy and stressful job. If you’ve ever planned a meeting or a party { or even just tried to get your friends to agree on a date for a lunch }, you know how crazy it can get so we had to know how Tracy does it every day. Her response? “I tell anyone thinking about event planning that you will either love it or hate it, there is no in-between.  If you love it you are crazy (and I love it so I am crazy) but it’s very rewarding.  No matter the event, and we do everything from business meetings to weddings, I want every detail to be perfect and each member and guest to have a great time.  I am so blessed to have an amazing staff here at the club that understands our vision and works to produce it every day.” Well…we love the floral event business so maybe we’re crazy too? No comment.

All of the events hosted at the club are great but one of our favorite times to be there? Christmas! Have you ever seen their 30 foot tree? It is spectacular! Team Fleuriste found out that OKCGCC has a farmer in Colorado who they use specifically for their Christmas trees. The pre-selected tree arrives at 6:30 a.m., the Sunday after the Beaux Arts Ball, and the next two days are spent decorating it. If you haven’t seen this gorgeous sight for yourself, make it a priority this December!

Thank you Tracy and the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club for letting Team Fleuriste show you off today. We’re eagerly awaiting the end of the day so we can finish the week like Tracy does…by kicking off the heels and having a glass of wine. Cheers!
