You Need a Time Out Babar!
I’ve been a florist for most of my life. When I was thirteen, my mom bought a flower shop and I was often conscripted into labor! At the time, I think I found working with my mom during my teenage years a little trying. Now, looking back, I’m so glad I had the chance to spend so much time with her creating beautiful arrangements to the delight of her customers.
I still work as a florist on holidays. For Christmas, I’ve had the pleasure of decorating the Hotel Plaza Athenee for the past three years. (And I was thrilled to add the Chambers Hotel to my roster.) This year, the Plaza Athenee asked me to create a Babar tree for a special Tea with Babar at the hotel. What a challenge. I attached 200 stuffed elephants to a tree base and added lots of bows to complete the look.
