This year TCU Florist hosted its first ever Posh Prom Party. An invitation went out to South Hills High School junior/senior students during their prom fashion show. We made a lot of preparations for the big day. We made sure we had every corsage bracelet and boutonniere holder our wholesalers could get their hands on. We also ordered lots of diamonds, rhinestones, pearls, feathers and beads. The students began showing up right at 2:00 and most hung around until the party ended at 4:00. They had no idea there were so many choices and cool things you could do with corsages.  Our three models enjoyed getting their hair all fixed up at Goldwaves Hair Salon,  dressing in their prom dresses and modeling the newest floral accessory trends. A few girls were really excited about the Peacock feathers and arm bands. Others loved the diamond bracelets and the idea of wearing them long after prom. The guys seemed to be very interested in the food and refreshment buffet!!! Everyone here really enjoyed putting this event on and the students seemed very appreciative. We hope that we can do many more of these parties for our high school community. If you would like to book a private prom party, please contact us. It's FREE! We provide the food and can even schedule a consultant to help with hair and make up selections. We looking forward to hearing from you!

Administrative Professional Humor + $10 Off

Have you prepared for Administrative Professionals Day?  It’s coming up on April 25th, and all administrative professionals know about it.  This is the time to appreciate and honor those who keep the office running smoothly, make sure you’re always on time, keep your clients happy, answer the phones, do a lot of the office organization, and generally make your business run smoothly and without too many problems.

Today, administrative professionals do much more than just take memos and answer the phones.  While they do these tasks, they also must handle scheduling, coordinate meetings, know the most recent computer programs, be able to work increasing-complex office machinery, handle some accounting, and much more.  “Secretary” no longer defines these hard-working professionals.  If you found yourself without your administrative professional, your office could easily fall into disorganization.

Think about it.  Without these people, you would have to take the time to schedule meetings.  That involves setting a time and date when everyone can attend, which can be very difficult if you don’t have everyone’s schedules handy.  You’d also have to answer the phone and handle all of the clients yourself.  When would you ever get work done?  Even if you see clients all day long, you’d constantly have to interrupt to handle other clients on the phone or who just dropped in.

Without your administrative professional’s wisdom, grace, expertise, organizational skills, and humor, you would have much more to handle.  On April 25th, take the time to show these administrative professionals just how much you appreciate them.  Take them to lunch, get them flowers, or have an office party.  Just don’t forget to do something—they DO know about Administrative Professionals Day, and they won’t forget if you forget!

Want to order your administrative professionals flowers?  We’ll help!  Take $10 off if you order flowers for your administrative professional between now and April 20.  Just use code BL2 at check-out.
