Hello friends, today we are starting a new blog series: Feature Friday. We have an incredible team at The Fleuriste and we want to introduce them all to you! Today is a special post, not only because it is the first in the series but also because it is Alaina’s birthday! She is part of our incredible floral team and is our resident Boutonniere Bombshell. It is only fitting that we start with the birthday girl so without further ado, lets meet Alaina…
What is your morning routine?
I wake up with the sun, get showered and dressed and greet the day with a celebratory (and all too necessary) cup of coffee. Then I head to work!
What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t working?
My favorite thing to do is work on one of my many ongoing art projects between long naps.
What is your favorite part of your job?
Processing flowers! I love getting to learn about all the different varieties we get. Our shop is fortunate to receive the best flowers, many of which are very unique and exotic.
Which three famous people, living or dead, would you want to have dinner with?
Solange Knowles, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Nina Simone
What is your favorite restaurant in OKC?

If you won an Oscar, who are the first three people you would thank in your speech?
My mom, my lovely partner Nick, and myself because darn it I deserve this.
What is your favorite flower?
Orchids are by far my favorite flower. I love all the different varieties they come in. Each one is specially adapted to their environment and are uniquely beautiful.
