I got a lot accomplished this week, starting with a trip to the NYC flower market with my trusty adviser and dear friend Karen (right). Many shops there offer hard-to-find flowers at wholesale prices. We selected the bowls for the centerpieces and shipped them down to N.O. Karen also advised me on bouquet choices. My florist was shocked to receive an order four days before a wedding, but she was also kind and made me feel like it’s going to all work out.
