Just the TWO of US” Flower packages:
 
Above is the first bouquet that I’ve created for my elopement packages.
 
I’ve had a lot of brides inquire about these packages, and so I’ll be creating set of arrangements that will include different REAL TOUCH TROPICAL FLOWERS.
 
Most of these packages will only include the bridal bouquet and bout,  but we can always add more items if time permit. 
 
Updates on Shipment Date:
 
If you're wedding is in the FALL of 2015 or early 2016, NOW is the perfect time to submit your order form.
 
If you’re interested in ordering a sample of the flowers before you decide to book, I will be more than happy to assist with that.
 
Remember, it’s never too early to BOOK YOUR DATE, and if you don't have all your flower details, you can always secure a date with a booking fee of $75.00

Hello Beautiful Brides!!
 
 
  Happy New Year 2015!!!!!
 
And look at what the NEW YEAR has welcomed us with.  That’s right we won the 2015 WeddingWire COUPLES’ CHOICE reward.  I am so grateful to be a part of this year and even more excited about create the floral visions for my brides.
 
 
2014 was certainly a great year for my family and myself.  Early in the year, my younger sister and I gave birth to beautiful baby boys: Dilan and Jasper, we call them the twin cousins.  We were due a few weeks part, and it just so happened that we gave birth one day apart…. Imagine that, huh.
 
 
I was truly a magical moment.  Life after marriage is FILLED with so many memorable moments.  Not in a millions years would I have ever thought of the idea that my sister and I would have children born literally 24 hours apart. But such is the BEAUTY of Life.  It’s a gift that keeps on giving. 
 
 
It can get even more exciting as a business owner.  Your personal life can sometime pretty much dictate the direction of your business.  Having a newborn at home, made it a great challenge for me to execute the plans that I had for my business because of so many unexpected events.
 
However, when your HEART is set on doing your BEST, the good always kind of out ways the bad, and everything works out for the best. It’s also the same thing in planning your MAGICAL WEDDING DAY.  Whether small or big, destination or  local, challenges are inevitable, but overcoming them is what makes the moment even more magical.
 
I LOVE beging a part of those moments, and as your floral designer, I PROMISE to deliver to you nothing but my very best.  I am presently ACCEPTING orders for the 2015 wedding season. It is very important to BOOK your dates as early as possible.
 
Placing your order 6-12 months in advance is always a great idea, as it will help eliminate the stress involved in last minute orders.  As always, you can pay a BOOKING FEE of $75.00, if you are not yet sure of the details of your arrangement. 
 
I am so looking forward to chatting flowers with you ladies, please email me:
plumeriasweddingflower@msn.com with your questions and/or concerns.
 
As always blessed planning,
 
Sandy Basiten

Happy Thanksgiving My Beautiful Brides!!!
 
Its been such a long time since my last blog post, and I did not want the year to pass without giving you ladies an update on what’s happening here at Plumerias Wedding Flower Boutique.  Before I go into those details, allow me to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for your loyalty and commitment to creative.
 
 December 1, 2013 will mark a full year since I took over this business, and I am proud to say that I have had the privilege of creating bouquets for brides all over the global including England and South Africa.  I know that this coming year will be an even bigger success.
 
As far as the shipment dates goes, I am currently taking orders for 2014 Wedding Season.  If you are interested in getting your flowers created by me please submit your order form as soon as possible.  Please keep in mind that I cannot promise any shipment dates until a deposit is made.
 
Custom flowers are shipped to brides at least 4-8 weeks before the wedding date.  For example, if your wedding is on January 16, 2014, an ideal shipment date would be at the least December 16, 2013 or earlier. However, this is only if those dates are available.
 
 In essence, the sooner you submit your order form, the earlier I can give you a shipment date for your custom order.    I am presently working on posting dates for shipment dates for 2014, but in the meantime please feel free to submit you order form and I will reply with a quote and instructions on what follows. 
 
As always if you need any clarity on shipment dates, please use the “Contact Sandy” link for all your questions.  Again HAPPY THANKSGIVING, and continue to enjoy every step of wedding planning,
 
With much love and blessings

Hello Beautiful Brides,
 
It feels like forever since the last time I connected with you ladies to let you know what’s been happening here at Plumerias. Since I am person behind this whole operation, I would like to share with you a lot of pretty AWESOME events that has taken place in my personal life.
 
Most of you know that I became the new owner of this business in December of 2012. Prior to that, I recently married the love of my life in August of 2012.
 
Many of you will notice that a lot of unexpected circumstances will enter your life once you are married. The best part about it is that you are not alone.
 
In February of 2013, my husband and I learned that we were expecting, but unfortunately that pregnancy did not survive and by March we miscarried.
 
 I was totally devastated, but I had to go on with my life and business responsibilities. I sought the counsel of some close family and friends that kept me level headed during these trying times.
 
However, in April of that same year, we learned that we were expecting again. This time I wanted to be excited, but found myself afraid. I really did not know what to expect considering what we had to go through the month prior. But I held my composure and as days, weeks, and months passed I slowly started to accept my reality and ask God to help me control my negative emotions.
 
On January 30, 2014, I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy, Dilan. My husband and I couldn't ask for anything more than that. We are a blended family and now we have a total of 4 children.
 
I was extremely grateful for the ability to uphold all the responsibilities and duties involved operating my flowers business, because towards the end of my pregnancy I was put on bed rest because of high blood pressure.
 
Today, I can honest say that I am in a better place mentally and physically and I thought it was only right that I share these with you since I haven’t updated my blog in such a long time. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I really appreciate you. 
 
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT PLUMERIAS?
 
I will be on vacation the whole month of August, which means I will not be shipping any flowers in that month. However, I will be accepting order form. Please feel free to use the “ Contact Sandy” link for any specific questions.  I am so looking forward to hearing from you.
 
As always blessed Planning,

Hello My Beautiful Brides!
 
 It’s been such a long time since I last posted a blog letting you ladies know what’s been happening here at Plumerias.  I have been very busy creating bouquets and booking weddings for the next seasoning. I am having so much FUN with some of these orders.  I am so thrilled to be able to use my creativity in putting together some of these order that has been coming in. It is actually one of many things thay makes my job as a Tropical Floral Designer such an honor. 

Speaking of honor, I have been receiving a couple for wedding pictures. Let me tell you how EXCITING those moments are for me.  It really makes my day to finally get to see the wonderful ladies I work with, their beautiful bouquet, and of course that special guy in their lives, so please keep those pictures coming.
 
As of the date of this blog, I still have shipment dates available. Please look at the link Ship Date link for more information.  If you are interested in an available shipment date, you can submit an order anytime. Although I will not be available in August, you can still put an order in and I will get back to you as early as the first week in September 2013.
 
I took over this business in December of 2012, and it been about six months since I have been creating these beautiful tropical bouquets for brides all over the globe which includes, England, Canada, Switzerland, and lately West Africa. There is an increasing demand for these bouquets, and it is my dream to be in a better position next year to accept much more orders, and make more brides happy.
 
During my vacation time in August,  in addition to taking a family vacation and celebrating my one-year Anniversary, I will also be putting a plan in action to expanding the business. I will be certain to keep you posted as progress is made.  Still next time ,  continue to enjoy every step of wedding planning, and if you have any questions please use the “Contact Sandy” link on the website.

Hi Brides!!

Just wanted you to know that I have started working on some new Ready 2 Ship packages. They are something I have to work on between all my wedding orders.

They are really fun for me because I can just design in whatever direction inspiration takes me :)

I really hope it will help some of you, as I've had to turn away so many brides lately -  due to my schedule being full.

You see the beautiful final designs I create but there is a great deal of work that goes into creating we...

I thought I'd share this brand new package I created on a whim - just thought the colors might look nice together.

Sometimes it is so fun to just design and come up with new bouquets. I don't think I've ever done anything like this before.

Back From a beautiful Wedding Anniversary Celebration!

My husband and I just celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary along the coast.

It seems like Fall is setting in because there was no fog all 4 days.  Summertime is always the foggiest, and for people that don't know that, it can be a big surprise. I think the most gorgeous weather is here! It was one of the main reasons my husband and I chose to get married in September. Our wedding day was crystal clear.

My husband showered me with gifts like he always does. In addition to a sweet, heart-sha...

The Most Important Day In Your Life . . .

I know how important your wedding day is to you.

It was the same way for me. I still have wonderful memories of that day. It was truly one of the best days of my life. In fact, my husband and I will be celebrating 9 years together, next week!

You know that TV show, "Family Feud" where they survey people to determine the top answer to a question? Well, tonight one of the questions was, "What has been the best day of your life, up to this point?"  The most popular answer was, "The day I got...

Today got me thinking . . .

Plumeria

I recently had someone order a Plumeria sample from me and when it arrived, she emailed me because she thought the sample she ordered was going to be a real Plumeria.

It made me really wonder how many people view my website and think the flowers I offer are real?

And beyond that, I wonder if anyone has ever ordered flowers from me for their wedding and thought they would have received real flowers! 

No one has ever let me know in all the years I've been doing this, but you never know! I...
