Thank You For The Input On The Flower Cart For The Polka Dot Flea

Thank you for all of your input on my post

I am sooo glad I put the question out to all of you because you made so many great points!


The best point was......."Will people be going straight home after the Polka Dot Flea?   It will be June..... and it is Florida....Its 180 degrees in the shade that time of year!   People usually purchase flowers at the grocery store..Why..Because they are going straight home.


You gave me such great alternative ideas...Potted flowers, herbs, and succulents..... Vintage vases and mason jars...Dried lavender and lavender buds and sachets


Sooo....I think dried lavender is the way to go....Why didn't I think of that!? You guys are genius!

 I can wrap the stems up cute with ribbon or paper or both.  There is no chance of wilting and they will look so cute in the flower cart



So...Dried lavender it is!  Thank you sooo much for your input!

Billie loves (To eat) fresh flowers.....How am I going to break this to her??


Happy Creating
Carol

Great!

Oh lavender is an excellent idea. I wish that I would have been one of those that thought of that. It's perfect and your booth will smell wonderful. As for your cat . . . good luck. Cats have their own personalities and can be very independent and non-caring of what you want or don't want them to do:)
Keep Smiling,
Connie :)

Hi Carol, I am very behind with email. Dried lavender is a fantastic idea!! I can see it wrapped in pretty delicate paper.

good decision Carol. :) Wrap them in vintage or old sewing pattern paper, tied with purple ribbon. Oh, how I wish I lived closer too so I could be in your show
