Quinn's Flower Arrangement Contest Entry

This Fall at Quinn’s elementary school there was a contest and kids could enter all kinds of forms of art from poems, dances, photography, drawings and paintings- you name it, it was enterable.

Of course my mini me decided she was going to do a flower arrangement and I was not so secretly thrilled by her decided upon entry manner. So I ordered her flowers and when the day arrived for her to create this masterpiece, I was a mixed bag.

The mom in me was cheering her on, letting her do her own thing while the florist in me was biting my lip and shoving my hands in my pockets because this was her original art and I was not allowed to mess with it.

I have to say, I think she did really great for a 5 year old! And mom definitely gave her a couple of pointers but I cut the stems and she placed and arranged every stinkin’ last one of them, y’all.

I might even hire her someday!

Sadly, I don’t think the judges see the value in this art form YET… but we’re going to slowly work them down because fresh flower arranging is an art.

I totally get that. I hate buying something and it breaking within the first use of buying it. What a waste! And I know when it comes to your wedding flowers, you can’t make that kind of mistake.

That’s why it’s important to see what real brides have to say about your vendors. Check out Petal’s Wedding Wire page or our The Knot page to see what our brides have to say!

One of the guiding principles at Petal is that from the first time you share your vision about your wedding flowers, you feel heard and understood. It’s my job to grasp what you want, even if you don’t know how to explain it. Just because my days are filled with constant flower talk doesn’t mean you have to know the lingo or all the flower varieties to get the flowers you want. One photo can say a lot about your style so get on pinterest and look around for things you like. And check out Petal’s Pinterest page while you’re there!

I also believe in getting what you pay for. Weddings are expensive. Flowers are expensive. And there’s a lot, and I mean A LOT of labor that goes into creating wedding flowers that you would never dream about but, I still believe in value. So I’ll always do my best to help you figure out how you can get the most out of the budget that you have set aside for your flowers.

If you’re not sure, just give me a call or shoot me an email and I’d be happy to answer any of your questions! And if you’d like to start the conversation of your wedding flowers, you can visit our contact page to get the ball rolling!
