L.A. Flower Market

Back in high school, we sold flower grams, or sometimes, just flowers, as fundraisers.  On the day of the sale, a couple of us would head down to the L.A. Flower Market at 6:00 a.m. to buy bunches and bunches of carnations.

A few weekends ago, I went with Jaxs -- the first time since high school -- to check out what was in season for the wedding reception (family gathering).  These days there's a $1 admission to enter, but, even just to look, it's quite worth it!  Here's just a glimpse of the eye candy:

Worlds and worlds of options!  Jaxs and I pared it all down and collected business cards so that an order could be placed closer to the reception date.  There were even floral supplies vendors, so we took care of containers, too. Success.

If you've never been, I highly recommend a visit!  Don't forget nearby Moscatel's -- which is related to the Michael's chain -- for tons of accessories.  One of the great things about going as an adult is that I can afford more than carnations, and I don't have to go to school right afterwards. (^o^)

The wedding reception was two weeks ago; see how the flowers came out in a future post (once photos are gathered, uploaded, and edited)!
