{ Team Fleuriste Spotlight } Ashley

We’re continuing our blog series today with the person who keeps the party rolling and the brides calm! That’s right, today you’re meeting Team Fleuriste’s Event Manager, Ashley. She’s the one behind the scenes making sure the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed all while wearing a smile on her face and high heels on her feet!

Ashley is quick on her feet and has networking skills that are unlike any other. Fun and fabulous are what come to mind when Ashley is in the game! With all the excitement she brings we thought we should also mention that she has a world famous pup named, Millie. Don’t believe us? Check out Millie’s insta page you will become a fan too! We love when Ashley brings Millie to come and hang out with us! We could tell you loads more about this Queen of Fun but we’ll let her take it from here…

Are you a morning person or a night person? Night! If you see me out of bed before 8:00 am, it probably took multiple alarms and a lot of dry shampoo! { Team Fleuriste side note: we are huge fans of the DryBar Detox Dry Shampoo! Try it – you won’t regret it! }
What is your favorite part of your job? 
Working with the clients!
What does a typical day for an Event Manager look like?  Well, each day is ALWAYS different. But there is always a mix of meeting with clients, working in my office surrounded by paperwork or completing projects for upcoming weddings and events. Now event days…that’s a totally different story!
What does event day look like for an Event Manager? In the morning, I’ll check on the team to see how production is going and make sure we are still on schedule. I’ll go over the event file and the production list for about the millionth time to insure we aren’t forgetting anything. Once I arrive to the venue, I’m usually running around multi-tasking by directing the crew, making sure all items are being placed in the proper location, coordinating with the other vendors on site, helping the client with last minute details and adding support as a back-up for the team. After the event is over, I’ll help take it all down at the end of the night!
You work with clients on so many different floral designs. Do you have a favorite? I don’t have a favorite {I’m attached to all of them!} but I do love when we can create floral chandeliers – they make such a memorable moment at an event!
What is your favorite flower? I have a few but right now I love Ranunculus…I am definitely a high petal count kind of girl!
You’re given a choice of one TV show to binge on Netflix while eating one meal – what is that show and what is that meal? Give me any funny sitcom and does french fries with a side of fresh fruit count as a meal? (No cantaloupe though! I strongly believe it is the “filler flower/carnation” in the fruit world.)
Word on the street is you’re a pretty stealthy online shopper – what is your favorite site to shop? I’ll admit I MIGHT have a small online shopping obsession but I love that are so many options and no crowds to fight! I don’t really have a favorite place to shop – I typically stalk a couple of blogs to see what the latest and greatest is and go from there.
