The Ultimate!!!

 It was such an honor to be the florist for the 2011 Ultimate Utah Wedding! The football field setting was so fun and of course the Rice Eccles  Stadium is a stunning venue for any event! The popular vote to use James Story orchids and Red roses for the wedding of Lee and Katrina was absolutely perfect. (Good job Fans!) The flowers set the mood for an evening of love and romance.

Thank you to Bride Access, the University of Utah and to the darling Bride and Groom for letting us share the day with you!

And Speaking of Birthdays...

With the biggest birthday month of the year upon us, so many of us are faced with that all too familiar question of what on earth we are going to give as a gift this year. Whether it is a family member, co-worker, or friend, buying for birthdays can be so hard! Wouldn't we all love to give that perfect, unique, fun, and well received gift? We have some great ideas! We will be posting various birthday gift ideas throughout the month, so allow us to help you brain storm and come up with that perfect something that you are looking for!

These beautiful Orchids make for a beautiful, simple, yet elegant gift that is suitable for just about anyone's birthday. The most highly coveted of ornamental plants, the delicate, exotic and graceful orchid represents love, luxury, beauty and strength. During the Victorian era, orchid symbolism shifted to luxury, and today this sense of magnificence and artful splendor continues, with orchids representing rare and delicate beauty.* Your boss, mother, mother-in-law, sister, or friend would be flattered to be on the receiving end of such a sophisticated and stunning arrangement!

Never Has Sugar Been So Sweet!

We enjoyed another fabulous event last night, "Mothers and Daughters Pamper Each Other", with doTERRA representative, Abbie Drage. She showed us so many fun and creative ways to put these wonderful essential oils to good use in our every day lives, including how to incorporate them into our food and home spa (see below for her sugar scrub recipe!) We greatly enjoyed making new friends and spending the evening with the ladies! Thank you so much to Abbie for hosing this event and providing such a refreshing outlook on ways to better treat ourselves. For all those who weren't able to attend, Abbie will be having regular events here at Brown Floral involving doTERRA essential oils, so be sure to get the next one on your calendar... we will be making fudge! If you are interested in purchasing, learning more, or have any questions regarding doTERRA oils, you can contact Abbie at (801) 792-0887 or email her at abickins@msn.com

When Pat Pignanelli asked us to decorate for the First Annual Holladay City Scholarship Dinner, we knew exactly what we wanted to do to set the mood for the evening!

Congratulations to Claire Thomas and Josue Barraza from Skyline High, Grace Hong and Zachary Wright from Olympus High and Hannah Hirst and Braden Tedrow from Cottonwood.  Each student received a $500.00 scholarship award to continue their education.

And as for Brown Floral- We think we deserve an A+ on the centerpieces! Aren’t they adorable?
