for our favorite girls

my mom is my all-time favorite.  and in honor of moms everyone, in addition to being at the flea on saturday, this mother's day, i'm partnering with my favorite neighborhood restaurant, 606 r & d for an 'i love you mom' pop-up shop!  come on by and get an arrangement or two for your mom, sister, wife, nana, nanny, auntie, bestie and any other maternal figure in your life.  you will make her day for certain.
the details:
'i love you mom' mother's day pop-up
sunday, may 13th
9am-4pm, or until the flowers run out
606 r & d restaurant
606 vanderbilt avenue {between prospect & saint mark's}

and yes, you can also absolutely pre-order by emailing me.  that would make me so happy.

go, go, go

empire-building is rough on the body.  i woke up with an all-too-familiar upper back-shoulder-neck pain monday morning and decided to take a day off.  okay, forced might be the better word here.  the thing about being self-employed is that the days pretty much blend into each other.  it just feels like a continuous 168 hours of work. good thing i love it, right?

was at the flea last saturday and will be back again this coming for MOTHER'S DAY! planning big things for you and the moms in your life...more on that manana.

btw, i do not want spirea season to end.  can't get enough of it.

i'm only human

you know you're behind when your mom is telling you that you haven't updated your blog.  april showered a whole lot of busy on me and le blog took a little hit.  i'm super sleep-deprived and my apartment is in total and utter shambles but here's your kat flower update:

got a new intern.  melissa.  she is a SUPERSTAR!  and she talks fashion and shoes.  i heart her.

{having some layout issues so while i wanted to spread this text out, blogger is doing my head in}

2nd and 3rd photo - wedding at the newly renovated brooklyn winery.  one of the moms hired me and she was an absolute love to work with, full stop.  i cried the morning of, looking at all the arrangements.  felt proud.  and my team kicked ass. for serious.

4th photo - the flea is back outside and i upgraded my booth with the help of michelle edgemont.  got a big ol' sign, a fancy blackboard, hanging foam-core photos and some collateral.  

5th photo - corporate event at studio 450.  shades of greens, whites and gray.  had fun, client was really happy, and again, team kat flower was in full effect mode.  plus my brother helped me break down after working an overnight shift saving babies.  it takes a village to raise this business and i'm not above recruiting family...

also met with brides, wrote proposals, ordered heaps of flowers {peonies are making their way back}, produced a fundraising gala {a nod to my pre-floral designer event planner days}, went to LA, worked on a few photo shoots and made new friends. 

i'm back at the flea in fort greene this saturday.  come by, say hello and yeah, buy some flowers.

check out my cost saving tips for wedding flowers on the DIY network here.  i feel it coming together y'all...just have to keep it together.  thanks for staying with me. x

p.s. many of the photos here were taken by melissa.  love her.
