Meeting with the florist

Now we're doing the fun stuff!



We met with the florist yesterday - and a little shout out to them because I think they're the greatest http://bastianskoog.com/

I will not give away everything, but just to share a little - it is tulip season in early April - so our centerpieces on the tables will be masses of warm tones of tulips in monotone colors. So...one table will have masses of pink tulips, the next will have masses of red tulips, then orange etc... They have amazing taste, I am so excited to see it!!!!

That is all I will reveal :-) Okay...so if pressed, I'll tell you more!

Next week we have to pick out linens. We're going to stay simple, likely use theirs with something over to make it a bit more exciting - but this is not an area I intend to spend much money. And the nice thing is that we don't have to cover the chairs because they're brand new and not super ugly. There is nothing I hate more than chair covers. It just creeps me out thinking...ewww, what is UNDER there! Mark my words, next time you sit on chair covers, you will be a bit creeped out too!

I love that you completely described in exact detail what every table arrangement will look like and then tell us you are keeping it a secret. And that is why I love you.

I love that you guys comment - I know lots of other people read it, because I run into them on the street - and they're like, "Oh, good to see you - the red tulips will be GREAT!"

I know you're readin' it ...so comment!
