|The sun hits the work in progress on Flora|
Once upon a time I used to be a floral designer. I started in Boston and worked in two very sweet shops catering to a sophisticated clientele. After I moved to New York I worked at a big shop on the Upper West Side before I ventured out into freelancing and working for party and event planners. While in the shops I frequently would get Teleflora and FTD orders for arrangements that were not quite to my taste, and that of our patrons. We designers would always do our best to fulfill the orders while raising the mark slightly.
