Where do you get such wonderful things?

I just got back from returning a red aisle runner to our dear friend Mike Piper at An Affair to Remember.  Not only is he a great wedding coordinator, he is also an amazing florist and has a huge selection of unique props that I love to raid.  The red rose petal aisle runner that you see in the last blog post is one of those things!  Apparently his mother sewed all of those rose petals on by hand?!?  (Don’t forget, Sunday is Mother’s Day!)  It just reminds me how important in this business it is to make contacts and build relationships, because you never know what wonderful things your colleagues have in their warehouses.
