I thought it would be fun to show some photos from my floral department at work, and what it looks like for Valentine's Day. I've done this before, but wanted to share again this year.
All the bouquets and roses are delivered dry, in boxes. We cut them, one bouquet at a time, and hydrate them in buckets of water. Last year, I totally ran out of everything, so I ordered even more this year. It took us approximately eight hours, yesterday and today, to cut them all! So glad that part of the work is finished!
The first few photos are of the massive amounts of flowers, inside the cooler.
These are the shelves. There are four of them and each one holds six buckets of flowers for a total of 24 buckets.
Here's the floor of the cooler. Can't even tell you how many buckets there are here. My guess would be around 25 to 30.
Here I am - in my element and loving it! You should smell it inside there - Mmmm! :)
And here's a few more pics of my department.
My larger bouquet case, filled with beautiful bouquets.
A smaller bouquet rack.
Here's the area where some of the pretty plants are displayed.
We started out with four of these cute bears and this guy is the last one (already!)
Close by my department, there is a large case filled with yummy treats from the bakery. Thought you all might want to see that too. Here's the case, which also holds some lovely plants on top.
There are cakes, brownies, large, heart-shaped cookies and some pretty amazing treats!
This is a flour-less cake that is so fabulous - the photo does not do it justice! Truffles are layered on top - yum!
And would ya look at the size of those strawberries! OH, MY!
Okay, I will leave you with a few of my faves. Here is a Campanula. LOVE this plant!
And here is my favorite bouquet. I love it because it looks like wild flowers - so pretty!
And these gorgeous flowers are in an arrangement. They sit in a red, ceramic pot. Love this mix of colors!
As you can imagine, I'll be working the next three days, including a long shift on Tuesday. With all the hard work behind us, the fun part now begins - just selling the product.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed all the photos! :)
