NEWSLETTER JUNE 2013


What JU-NEver knew!

The awesome team: Jill Manson, Cindy Schutte, Marietjie Reffo, Tracey Dirsuwei

Hello fans of the flower, lovers of mother nature, creative souls and kindred spirits!

I bet YOU NEVER KNEW that we that we hit a massive Milestone in MAY! That our flowers are going to be on TV? Bet you never knew what our team looked like before? Well there we are! (minus Nikki and Mandy sadly) All dolled up and ready to go!

So now that it's JUNE... we get a chance to give you all this delicious news and more about what's been going on since our last letter in April.

DATABASE DISASTER

Firstly, in April, it came to our attention that 85% of the people on our database were not receiving ANY of our newsletters and emails because the newsletter management service provider we were using had made changes to their system and failed to include us in the update. We have subsequently started using a new platform as of 1 June!

I would like to apologise to you if this is the first email you have received from us in many months. I would also like to take this opportunity to say that if you did not subscribe and would not like to receive any of our news please feel free to unsubscribe by clicking the link at the bottom of this email. (We have a small concern that if you manually unsubscribed in previous emails, it never actually implemented by the old service provider)

MASTERFLORIST @ GRAND DESIGNS LIVE

May was an exceptionally exciting time – our Milestone was that we got the opportunity to host a MASTER FLORIST COMPETITION at Grand Designs Live at the Dome. What a ball!!! This was something on our GOALS AND WISH LIST for many moons and so to see it come to light and actually manifest was so exhilarating! And boy did we steal the show! Well done to all the finalists and the competition was tough, let me tell you! The prize was R5000 in cash, one year’s supply of free flowers from Electric Butterfly Flowers, a full floral design course value R4360 from Corollation ….and a Flowerscape for 2 persons!

The winner was Candice Allan and the runner up Barbara Green-Thompson! Well done again, ladies! And to all who competed you were so courageous and brave! Not easy to design in-front of hundreds of spectators and strangers!


SWEET TV COMMERCIAL

We also did our first gig for an amazing film/tv production company called Sweet Spot Content and we had to create a wedding scene in the forest at Zoo Lake for a One Life Direct commercial! We built the most magnificent arch and aisle flowers to go with it – so keep an eye out for the ad coming soon to the tele!

Not only do flowers hold healing magic, they can also help us spiritually. Flowers can be linked to our psyche and help us build a picture of who we really are!

Discover the message a flower has for you in a Flowerscape workshop.
