Indian Independence Day 2009

indian independence flowers
As some of you may know, August 15 is Indian Independence Day. India, in terms of people, is the biggest democracy in the world. It is also relatively new, gaining independence in 1947.

Every year, Anaheim City Councilman Harry Sidhu and his wife Gin open their Yorba Linda house to a giant celebration commemorating the event. AND, once again they called on Visser's Florist and Greenhouses to provide the flowers for the party.

The flower arrangements were all done in Orange, White and Green--the colors of the Indian flag. It was really a fun time. Like always, there were dancers, singers and other entertainment, and lots of indian food. Like always, I ate way too much.

Biker Sympathy Flowers

motorcycle flowers
We received a rather unusual request at Visser's Florist yesterday. A gentleman wanted us to re-create the front wheel of a motorcycle for a friend who recently died.

We did it and I think it turned out really nice!
