As we enter month #2 of official operations from launch, we've gotten our first order of 99 roses hand-tied today. This is not the first time we are building this bouquet, but the first time we've made a decision to use Kenya roses to build it. Which is a little insane, as the guy at the nursery said to us, because apart from the higher material cost, Kenya roses are larger and come with thicker stems - about 50-100% thicker than the China roses typically used in such bouquets. Which means a really hard time doing the spiral with this.

But what the heck, we have a brand promise to deliver, so we went with the decision to go with Kenya. We wanted to steer away from the even, flat design, and decided that as enormous as this bouquet was, we need to stick to our design principles (drilled into us in our trainings) that the handtied must have a natural high and low in the arrangement, achieving the rustic, natural look of a bouquet from the gardens.

This took 2 persons and nearly 3 hours, from prepping the flowers and foliages, to arranging and wrapping the oversize bouquet. But the result is quite satisfying we think, and we hope the flowers did their magic in delivering the very, very important message our sender wanted to convey to his lady - that he'll love her till the end of time. :)
