At the magazine, one of our favorite days of the year is when we get to do the bouquet photoshoot. We all get excited to see the colorful arrangements arrive and the fresh flower smell fill the office. We were impressed by the gorgeous bouquets from this talented bunch of local florists that we featured in our Summer 2012 issue (on newsstands now). Another one of our favorite parts? Afterwards, we each get to have one of these beauties sitting on our desk for the rest of the week. Which one is your favorite?
