I want to give you some flowers because I think you’re pretty cool.Read More
This weekend I had the opportunity to work with my favorite ladies at Whim Events on a beautiful classic wedding in the State Room, a venue that is truly one of Boston's best. Being so high above the city, the massive tufts of florals suspended on tall glass vases mimicked clouds with just a touch of blush and greenery.
Each arrangement featured an assortment of hydrangea, roses, and peonies in white and blush with accents of cymbidium orchids, hydrangea leaf, and other greens to create a large pouf of flowers. While it can be a challenge figuring out how to make stems disappear completely or how to balance a flower cloud on a 2.5 foot tall vase, working with some other talented creatives was such a fun and educational experience.
If you've seen my Instagram post this morning you'd know: I'm nervous.
Having my own business has been a dream of mine since I was selling "artwork" to my parents in pre-school. I'm so excited to launch but like anything risky in life, there are so many what-ifs.
The timing was unexpected, sure, but one of the best things I believe to be true about myself is my ability to just roll with it. Maybe this was the backup plan originally but it's real now!
With that said, launching a business out of thin air is a little unrealistic. It takes a lot of resources and planning and while I can build a plan as I go, I do not yet have the resources I need to get off the ground successfully.
While there are a lot of routes I could go down, I have decided to offer an exclusive Fleur Boston t-shirt to fundraise some of the start-up costs.
These shirts, designed by myself, will feature our logo on the front and the Plant Something Good and Watch it Grow print on the back, both in Navy. With something for everyone, these shirts will be printed on White Unisex Gildan Ultra Cotton t-shirts in sizes Youth XS through Adult XXXXL.
The campaign will be open until May 1st and you will have the option to have it shipped directly to you after the order closes for a small fee, or shipped to me to be delivered to you free of charge! Shirts will be printed and sent out about 2 weeks after May 1st so that we all get them together.
I cannot extend this order nor can I guarantee that I will ever offer t-shirts or other physical merchandise in the future. We need at least 8 orders to print these shirts but my goal is 50! Ordering would mean that not only do you get to keep a part of my business, but you would be directly helping me with costs for things like basic web hosting, business cards, supplies, and marketing materials.
