Home Sweet Brocante is an un-Craigslist – the elegant clutter of a girl in Paris who loves the idea of the American garage sale, so she started having monthly sales (brocante is the french word flea market.) But the best part are her musings on design, food and fashion. And she very bravely has translated her French site into english so les Americains and other English speaking ex-pats can browse her wares. If you’re headed to Paris, check the site for dates! I can’t imagine a more unique travel experience. Charmante!
It is high wedding season here in Palm Springs! And inside My Little Flower Shop, the bouquets, boutonnières and centerpieces are flying. As a team member at MLFS, my participation is usually electronic. But this weekend found me riding shotgun in the My Little Flower Shop truck, spray bottle loaded and ribbon scissors at the ready.
At the end of the day, having dropped off and set up flowers for three different weddings, I was zonked as we celebrated Cinco De Mayo at the lobby bar (El Jefe) of the ever-so-colorful Saguaro Hotel. I wasn’t just celebrating the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France, I was celebrating the victory of sitting down. (BTW, Saguaro folks, that weird banquette thing in the front of the bar could use a little more cush for the tush).
So where am I going with this? I want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You see, I am a My Little Flower Shop bride. Not only did they do the flowers, but were our event planners ensuring our beautiful day was flawless (see the album below). Yesterday I saw only a snapshot of how hard the team works. We thanked Greg and Al on our wedding day, but this experience taught me to thank My Little Flower Shop over and over, whenever I can. There is no such thing as “too grateful.”
Live well, and love well.
PS – Thanks to all the Wedding Warriors who made Friday’s Dream Wedding possible! You guys are AWESOME!
