Tipton & Hurst was recently featured in the Valentine Gift Guide article on the popular fashion blog AJ Wears Clothes.
When listing the best presents to give for Valentine’s Day, Tipton & Hurst was the only florist mentioned:
“Flowers are always the ultimate Valentine, and now that Tipton Hurst has joined The Promenade, it’s easier than ever to pick up a bouquet. They have cash & carry in store, or you can order ahead of time and pick up – or better yet, have them deliver! They also have an impressive selection of gift baskets.”
Sometimes, all you need is love… and sometimes, you need a helping hand. Here’s a photo essay for you showcasing one of our beautiful bridal bouquets.
“Mr. and Mrs.” leave the church in a vintage VW convertible complete with shoes and cans attached to the back of their car. Unfortunately, they get only a few blocks away when something goes wrong. Ut oh! Flat tire.
The bride waits patiently as the groom works on the car. Can you believe this happened to us on our wedding day? Geeze! The bride has a moment to enjoy her wedding bouquet. A base of creamy white hydrangeas, ivory roses with just the faintest hint of buttery yellow in the center, pure white stock which is very fragrant, a few frilly carnations, wisps of white alliums, and gray dusty miller. The ivory satin ribbon falls to the ground with love knots and makes a nice contrast to the beautiful mermaid-style wedding dress.
Bride decides to take matters into her own hands by thumbing for a ride. No takers so she ups the ante showing a little leg. Cue the whistles!
Husband gets a little frustrated with wife’s silliness and takes a break. Bride sees off the road a little gazebo and a pond and gets an idea.
She takes hubby’s hand and together they walk to a romantic spot where they share some time. Flat tire? Who cares! We’ll call for help after we enjoy some quite time together on our wedding day.
