The trip of a lifetime to the Rose Parade 2018

Our owner, Alicia, is obsessed with flowers. Her husband, Chase, is obsessed with all things OU. So what better adventure than a trip to the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl in 2018?


In 2003, when Alicia and Chase were still dating, OU went to the Rose Bowl. Every year since then, Alicia has longed to go to the Rose Parade and help work on the floats. Chase promised that if OU ever made it to the Rose Bowl again, they would go.


Flower spotlight: baby’s breath

Baby’s breath is a long-time staple in the floral industry. Its delicate white flowers can add fullness to a bouquet or create contrast for brightly colored flowers. The delicate stems and small flowers spread easily to fill any gaps in an arrangement, and they can help add some softness to bold, dramatic flowers.


Baby’s breath also adds an element of purity and innocence to any bouquet, and it’s especially common for wedding bouquets and new baby bouquets. Tiny sprigs also appear in boutonnieres and corsages for both weddings and formal events.
