Working Designer Wednesday: Lovable You

Feb 9, 2011

I just love to see a designer hard at work creating a bouquet or arrangement. We’ve all been there…you enter your own world and time slips by unnoticed…you’re oblivious to what’s taking place around you…you speak when spoken to, but have no recollection of the conversation later…every ounce of concentration is focused on the creation at hand. In the end, a design indicative of the designer’s personality is born…and nothing is more beautiful.

I’ve received so many emails from amazing designers recently and I have to say…you are some of the most generous, warm and genuine people I’ve ever met. So today’s post is about you…the hardworking and incredibly talented designers…

Let’s take a look at a few designers hard at work…

Wish I could share a picture of each one of you. Thank you for your kindness…and for inspiring your clients and fellow designers day after day. Botanical Brouhaha would not exist if not for your hard work and generosity.

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday…
