A different challenge this week.
Fair to say that the vast majority of our work at Sweet Floral is Weddings and Flower Crown Hens parties. In their own ways all weddings and parties are a unique experience and challenge. They keep us busy and we love it. But, every so often, something comes up which is a bit different. Here is the story of one such challenge.
We received a call from Sydney from our client who was building and decorating a stand at a trade show at Perth Convention Centre. The requirement was for Yellow Mokara orchids and greenery to decorate 3 planter boxes. The orchids had to be blooming and needed to last for the whole week of the exhibition. Not hard in itself but the decision had to be made immediately to do it as the orchids had to be ordered on that very day. The order went in for the orchids but unfortunately come the day of delivery only 4 of 21 bunches had arrived at our wholesalers. The following 24 hours saw Nicky ringing everyone she could think of and I think she managed to buy every bunch of yellow mokaras in Perth. Happily all’s well that ends well. We relate this story to give some idea of the difficulties faced by all florists and wholesalers in Perth. Sometimes it is a problem living in the most remote city in the world! Below is a collage of us at work in the Perth Convention centre and the finished result.
Lovely to receive really positive feedback from the client at the end :
“I just saw photos of those Mokaras on stand, they are amazing!
Thank you so much for all your help and efforts in this :)”
