A Very Special LoCoFlo Weekend

The big news this week at LoCoFlo is that Jen had a baby! As of Thursday, Jen was planning on coming in to work on Friday-even though it was her due date. I was already feeling like I was living on borrowed time with Jen-so I was quietly excited that she was coming to work on Friday (because she’s AWESOME!) No such luck for me! Jen went into labor Thursday night and had a beautiful baby girl, Edie Adele, on Saturday morning!  Congratulations to her and Dave and Coleman and Lucas! I’m so excited to welcome Edie to the LoCoFlo family!

Even though Jen wasn’t around, Heather and I had a great time creating flower bouquets and arrangements for two beautiful weddings this weekend.

The first wedding we worked on was Nicole and Pete’s. Nicole wanted sunflowers with a mix or orange, brown and green accents. We used dahlias, zinnias, amaranthus and lots of eucalyptus. It was a beautiful palette for a mid-October wedding.



We also worked on Leslie and Michael’s wedding which took place at the beautiful Josephine Baker Parks Center in DC. What a beautiful venue-made even more beautiful by the sunny, Fall day we had on Saturday.

The bride chose white, green and shades of purple as her colors. She also wanted splashes of light yellow and deep red to compliment the colors inside the building. The bride’s bouquet was filled with dahlias, lisianthus, salvia, lavender, mint and eucalyptus.

The ceremony chairs had beautiful, lush, flower hangers filled with mint, lavender, lemon basil, salvia, ageratum and dahlias.

Now…to keep and eye out for FROST!
