thought. We didn’t want a private room, as the feeling was too secluded.

wanted. After tasting the food which is amazingly yummy; a blend of
Mediterranean/Italian/Mexican, so on point. The owners were also very charming
and accommodating. We were very excited to that we found our perfect little spot!
Next was the décor. Jules and I both agreed to bring in pretty blossoms with a soft
pal pink and white theme. We are both obsessed with flowers! So I decided I will use
always been a little side dream to have my own floral shop). With some inspiration
pics that Julie sent, Amina and I set out to go flower shopping and it was so much fun
to get to choose my favorite blossoms! We finally chose a combination of soft pink
roses, pal pink orchids, white hydrangeas, and bunch of beautiful white flowers and
of course now I forget all the names! I promise I will do my homework more thoroughly
next time. I was so taken away by their beauty and didn’t remember what they are
Home food remedy: (if your flowers don’t come with food you can make your own!)
1 teaspoon white sugar
2-teaspoon lemon or limejuice
1-quart warm water
Cut the stems and put flowers in warm water. This helps the flowers to drink and
absorb the water faster.
For arrangement of flowers:
Opt for different shapes/sizes of flowers
Cut them in different lengths so there is more dimension in each display
Mix 2-3 colors but subtle soft palettes or bright and bold
I like non-symmetric displays, nothing too centered, and I like them a bit untamed
End result: Everyone including myself was very impressed with the outcome! Wink
wink…they say it looks professionally done…I said ‘they are professionally done’
hahaha. I can safely say I passed the test, now I can pursue my other dream and
open a floral shop!
