{ A "BLISS"ful Valentines Weekend }

A friend of mine, Betti Bliss, owns the cutest little flower shop you've ever seen on Balboa Island called Bliss Fine Florals. It's absolutely charming! This weekend she enlisted my help to tackle the hundreds of orders she received for Valentines Day.

We honestly made so so so many arrangements! We worked around the clock and cranked them out, one after another. It actually made me wish I was this busy with flower orders all the time!

These dumb iPhone pics don't do it justice, but it's really the most darling shop ever. I kinda feel like it's the Anthro of flower shops, if that makes sense. Someday if I get gutsy enough to ask the bank for a fatty loan to open up my own flower shop, I'll want it to look something like this!

Betti loves to work with a lot of the same flowers I love to work with: lots of hydrangea, roses, tulips, cymbidiums, phalos, succulents, anemones, and tons of other fresh flowers. I wanted so badly to take home a vase stuffed full of nothing but tulips, my favorite!

And that's all I got for now. I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day full of love...and flowers!!! xoxo.

bet you liked the flower shop in valentine's day the movie--if you saw it. except for the (1-800 flowers) subliminal logo placement. i thought that was weird.
