Lady Lavender

Friday Favorites

I have a friend that lives waaaay on the other side of the country in Oregon. Oftentimes she sends me beautiful pictures that she has taken of all the glorious wildflowers that grow up there. Last Friday she invited me to like a facebook page and while I was elbow deep in preparation for a taco bar I just accepted it, noticed it had something to do with flowers, and went back to the food stuff.

The next morning I had the chance to actually look at the page and y’all, it just made my day. It was a flower truck business! A lavender 1964 Ford truck that had been converted into a mobile flower bar. I assumed it was local to Lauren and was so delighted to see that it was actually local to me! As in here in Pace, Florida as opposed to Joseph, Oregon.

If you know me at all then you know I love flowers in general and I love to photograph them. I also love quirky and fun small businesses and this just tickled my fancy! I immediately started daydreaming about all the ways this could be fun for pictures. I found where they would be on Monday and and reached out to see if they would be willing to to let me snap a few pictures and feature them on my Friday Favorites.

Things were already hopping when I arrived and Lindsay said she had barely gotten the flower buckets out before people were stopping to buy flowers. Prices vary from day to day depending on what her stock is but everything was fresh and colorful. She carries some unique and fun filler stems and bright cheery blooms.

She is as helpful and as hands on as you would like for her to be. She is willing to help talk you through what flowers go well together or she is happy to let you do your own thing. She has only been in business a little over a month but has some fabulous ideas about how to make the most of her mobile flower bar.

I love her idea of a bride and groom stocking the truck with blooms that match their wedding colors and allowing guests to create a small bouquet as a thank you. Or how about a lovely bridal brunch the morning before the wedding and the bridesmaids all get to create their bouquets? Birthday parties, tea parties. So much potential for such a fun and unique business!

Click on over to her Facebook page and start following her so you know where she will be and you can stop to make your own bouquet to brighten up your home. We have certainly enjoyed our flowers!
