on joining the Stems Squad.
It seems like the calendar flipped and its go time for our 2017 season. I could not be more excited for what we have on tap. The brides we are working with have absolutely gorgeous ideas & we are still booking! Its going to be a fun one.
As per usual, we are looking for people to join our team this season. We call them the 'Stems Squad.' Seriously, search the hashtag.
Working for our small but mighty flower tribe is not easy, but it is fun. We work really hard. But we also play hard & treat our team like family. I ask that you give this serious thought before shooting me an email, not because I don't want you here- because we want only people who really want to be here to join us.
Flowers are really really beautiful & making weddings happen is hard & rewarding work. So if you're ready for a summer filled with some of the most awesome work of your life- read on. Oh and yes- you do get free flowers. Like, lots.
