Imagine the horror... a vendor calls to cancel just two weeks away, because she's over booked her weekend? Yes, it HAS happened. We are on an ISLAND?!!! .... What now? Panic is a viable option.
It goes without saying that this could be disastrous!
Not so. Hawaii is home to some of the world's most beautiful and fragrant flowers and fillers.
A good local floral designer can turn your catastrophe into something unexpectedly beautiful.
In the midst if an unraveling plan you find what you're really made of.
This also might be time to consider silks. You can still get the desired look but without the urgency of overnight shipping and out of stock messages.
If you are anything like me, I find the PERFECT thing every 5 minutes. When brainstorming leads to chaos, it is no longer "a good thing" (Gotta love Martha).
Make a plan. Color outside the lines if you must,
but don't color over the masterpiece you already created.
In other words, If you want to incorporate something out of the box or not necessarily within the design you originally created, DO IT! Just be careful not to swing the pendulum the other way.
