We would be less than truthful if we said that the last 2 years or so have not been a hard time for our company. The recession took it's toll and with other flower shops closing around us, we are grateful to not only be surviving but thriving. This week we brought together almost our whole team (driver Joe and sales associate Kristine we unable to attend) for a business celebration event! We had a great time and thank you to Salt Creek Grille here in the Princeton Forretal Village for doing a fantastic hosting our meeting!
It's always fun getting a group shot as we are rarely in the same place at the same time! Mom and Dad Vinicombe even made an appearance (Arlene works in our office part time assisting Kevin) and they even brought the grandkids - our niece and nephew Mary Ann and Markie!
Shop Coordinator Sheryl, Driver Jeff, Sales Associate Melissa and holiday driver Kyle pose for me!

Is it ok to admit that the wine was flowing and we were all feeling mighty good by the time this photo was taken? Driver Jeff, Sales Associate Heena, Design Manager Holly, Melissa and I all smile for the camera.
Designer Norman with his two favorite girls - Designer Rocio and Shop Staffer Tina.
Part timer Brendan poses with me. Brendan is our "man about town" on the weekends as he often assists Design Manager Holly on wedding and event setups!
If you have never had these at Salt Creek Grille, you are missing out. Shrimp wrapped in bacon - YUM!
Kyle and my hubby pose for me!
Designer Sam and Design Manager Holly toast to a great 2011 and an even better 2012.
For anyone that has spent any time at the shop, you'll see that Driver Christina and Designer Rocio have a very special bond. They are also practical jokers so it makes it even more interesting to watch them together!
Well, there you have it. A sneak inside our little party and of course, we had flowers. A fun time was had by all and for those of you that are our current or past customers, we thank you for giving us a purpose!! We love our jobs and we hope it shows!
