Well it was a field on the edge of a forest. But having missed the massive tent on arrival, it was the one where I drove through the entire forest. Ignoring ‘no entry’ signs. Like florists are clearly exempt from all restrictions? They simply cannot apply, but we have to find the wedding. And it might just be another 100 yards down that impossible track.
I gave out my pearls of wisdom. Which included ‘under no circumstances should you light those scented candles’. Nobody should light a scented candle unless they are in the comfort of their own home. Why? Because some of us cannot breath if you do. Which is reason enough for me.
This week I had the pleasure of meeting a respected fellow florist. We talked shop. We talked about the silly prices of the Bombastic rose. We shared alternative roses should we not wish to work for free. Another florist suggested we have riders for events. You know like rock stars. My rider will read as follows:
Tea on arrival
Immediate pointing to nearest loo
Fresh fruit if 20 degrees and above
Cake if below 20 degrees
Hot buttered crumpets if below 10 degrees
Not much to ask for? OK, I’ll stop with the diva chat.
