Great location to take pictures!

Yesterday, Mom, Mitzi & I went to the Hyatt in Crown Center to help my Aunt Susan and her team prepare for her American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) event!

We weren't in charge of making any of the 55 table centerpieces that had 150 white roses on them. Look in the pictures for the wreaths ... they are BEAUTIFUL! We worked for about 2 1/2 hours folding 600 black napkins and then rolling them and putting them in the 550 napkin rings that Susan's crew handmade! It wasn't a tough job, but it was necessary. The hardest part about it was that we were in a workroom (convention center hall) that had the temperature lowered so that all the flowers could keep throughout the week-long event! It was FREEZING!

Anyhoo ... I had a chance to walk around and take some great pictures. I hope you all enjoy them!



Pin It!

Excellent Pictures. Pursue a career in photography but forget being a florist!
