Intake Wednesday!

I think my neighbors like me…A LOT…because every Monday I start collecting all the flowers from the previous wedding and start handing out fresh arrangements to them so I can clear our our inventory for Intake Wednesdays! This week we have two weddings back to back … but luckily, not on the same day! Thanks […]


Well today was one crazy day! Not only were we delivering to two different weddings…but I’m pretty sure we had a close call with a tornado!! Our first wedding to deliver to was at the Lyon’s Farmette … a cute and quaint farm tucked of the side of the Ute Highway. I’ve driven passed this […]

Two weddings this weekend!

This weekend we have not 1 but TWO weddings to deliver to!!! I am so glad my husband found the second floral fridge when he did … otherwise, some flowers would be SOL on cooler space!! I’m also super thankful that he helped me intake all those flowers!!! We have LOTS to do this weekend…including […]

A Purple Wedding

Today we delivered and setup a wedding for a lovely bride and groom at Arrowhead Golf Course If you haven’t been to Arrowhead before you are certainly missing out on some of Mother Nature’s greatest creations! It is simply beautiful. Julie and Andrew were so easy to work with … Julie knew she wanted calypso calla […]

Welcoming Gracie

Today Alli (my assistant) and I took a mini road trip for a special addition to the Oakes Fields Family! Meet Gracie

All things blue

Today we delivered for a lovely bride and groom … the delivery was super smooth, but our planning side of us came out and we had to jump into action when we saw some things happening in the back end. I’m guessing normally, florists deliver and leave…but my crew and I just can’t do that […]
