Flowers Don't Just Smell Delicious In Mount Vernon WA
[caption id="attachment_10228" align="alignright" width="150" caption="Pancake Flowers by The Enchanted Florist "][/caption]
In case you haven't met her, there's a real sweetheart in Mount Vernon, Washington who is the creative face behind The Enchanted Florist.
When asked to do an anniversary arrangement for the local IHOP restaurant, Lori Manduchi (the sweetheart) created this unique pancakes flower arrangement as a special treat.
Lori recently shared these photos on the FSN Facebook page. Of course, everyone at Flower Shop Network was SO impressed that I had to ask the story behind them.
Just a customer who knew that we liked to do oddball things and was willing to pay the extra delivery charge to get it there. I did mention that the IHOP was about 20 miles away from us.
The pancake part was easy, copper cushion mums with a dusting of matte white design master to give them a toasted look.
The syrup took a lot longer but after trying out lots of different kinds of media from elmers glue to polyurethane, we settled on the tinted modpodge that we had puddled onto wax paper and left to dry. It stayed flexible enough so that we could drape it over the pancakes and and onto the plate.
We stay pretty busy with the day to day of birthdays, new babies, sympathy etc. Itâ€™s so much fun when we get an order for something that really makes us stop and think â€œNow how in the world am I going to do that?â€ It keeps us from falling into a floral rut.
I knew it. You can ALWAYS count on florists to come through with something creative and fun. Be it a unique anniversary arrangement like Lori's pancake flowers or a spiffy Jeep flower arrangement for a birthday, florists always come through in a pinch with something beautiful and special.
Thanks so much to Lori and everyone at The Enchanted Florist for sharing this delicious-looking arrangement with us!
