The boss was having an in- office presentation for a potential Client; yesterday half of the staff were cleaning the working mess; we were asked for creative ideas how to pretty up the place so I volunteered to do the flowers.
Got up at 5:45, was out the door at 6:30 and @Flower district at 7:15am. Did rather well within the allocated budget of a hundred bucks: 2 bunches of flowering Quincy, a dozen of parrot tulips, bunch of curly pussy willow and a bunch of green box. Most importantly – a dozen of heritage English roses. Seasonally inconsistent, but my priorities were color&texture. Supplies were my own, and so was the labor.
He said he liked the arrangements but only after I finally broke down and asked…
We got the project!
