I’ve done a fair amount of peach hued weddings this year. While it’s a beautiful color and a gorgeous pallet for a wedding, as a florist it’s easy to get bored ordering the same old things for every wedding. The little oranges weren’t originally part of my plan, but when I stumbled upon them at my local wholesaler, I knew they were exactly what this wedding was missing.
I also feel I have to confess. I’ve always loved anemones. But when I first started ordering them I thought it was pronounced exactly how it looks, (ane-mone) with a hard “o” sound. Now I just get the name of the flower confused with the sea creature. I also always forget how to say Astilbe. For awhile I was calling it (Ass-ti-ble). So I’ve sounded like an idiot a fair share of times.
