Buckets of fresh flowers just waiting for the designer.
Flowers come into the warehouse from all over the world.
When I was a little girl I used to watch the Lee Phillip show on Chicago television, but what I didn't know is that her family owned a flower shop. She began this show because of flowers in 1952, won sixteen Emmy Awards and moved to California in the late 1980's and into a home that was once owned by Cary Grant. She and her husband William Bell began writing Emmy Award winning soap operas like the Guiding Light, As The World Turns, Another World, The Young And The Restless and The Bold And The Beautiful.
Boxes of Christmas decor to add to arrangements.
Orchids are another popular plant for inclusion in arrangements
The little flower shop remained run by her brother and now run by her very extended family of children and grandchildren. It is no longer the little shop around the corner but a huge conglomerate of suburban shops and designer warehouses located in Chicago and the suburbs.
We all got to make our own arrangements.
This is my arrangement, looking at all kinds of things I could have done differently, but it is lovely sitting on my coffee table!
