joan's tips and tricks from angels and flowers 

When you go into a flower shop you don't always have to choose a bouquet from the stand you have the option of asking the florist to make you a bouquet of your choice   . when you bring your flowers home you can arrang them your own way   flowers are great to lift up our spirits , if your feeling down try pick yellows and orange and some purple  it helps bring up our mood ,you should find a local florist that you trust. 

i love to  create different arrangements  as i teach floristy  coming up with ideas  can be fun  if you had an old shoe you could put some oasis in the opening of the shoe then pick some flowers and put them in .    

  lots of  my customers  like the little touches maybe a butterfly or an angel between the flowers  it gives  a memory of the fresh flower bouquet.
