    Default A line of soldiers....

    Here is a quick snap shot I took the other day. Louis and I were working on a wedding at the end of October/ beginning of November for one of our customers' daughters and we wanted to give her some idea of what kind of blooms we had at the time. She loved the phrags! The wedding guests took off with many of the plants purchased for the rehearsal dinner. I wish I had a photo to share of the restaurant full of orchids, but I guess this one will have to do for now.

    Enjoy!

    Cheers!

    You guessed it. And man did they go over well with the folks at the wedding reception! We mixed phrags, oncids, and paphs and potted them up in ceramic containers from an artist studio here in Arkansas. Each pot was hand signed by the artist and with the beautiful orchid in it, the guests just could not help themselves. I'm not sure how they got them got on the plane back to SC.

    I guess they held them in their laps?? I was just so happy to see people new to orchids going wild!
