Everyone hard at work on their arrangements here at the flower shop.

The largest of our four arrangements created to take home all lined up in a pretty row!

Fresh Floral Wreath from Helen Olivia Flowers

One of our clients ordered this gorgeous fresh floral wreath from Helen Olivia in Alexandria, VA in honor of her daugther's christening.  Dean created the beauty using hydrangeas, germini daisies, roses and lisianthus.  Our client was very clever in adding new little flowers to keep it fresh and was able to use it for tea party a week later!   I love how she incorporated the tea cups.

Fresh floral wreaths are $175-$250 and typically last 3 to 5 days but this one is on its second week.  Wow!
