If you are a florist, or have worked in a flower shop before you will understand what I am about to type…we have special floral super powers. These powers allow us to notice flowers and plants everywhere. This blessing…or curse will stay with us florists for the rest of our lives. The ability to notice floral arrangements, plants, even floral printed things in movies, TV shows, magazines, shopping centers, hotels, restaurants and homes is something not everyone possesses. I know what you are thinking; we are gifted.
It’s rare that us florists can watch an entire movie without accidently blurting out something along the lines of “oh wow check out that bromeliad”, “OMG! Did you see that centerpiece?!” or my personal favorite, “HA she’s smelling a daisy…daisies don’t even smell.” It can get embarrassing because the odds of watching a movie with another florist are slim…so your movie-watching partner will probably just sit and stare at you with judging eyes.
I’m lucky enough to have friends who are also florists, who don’t judge me when I remove the brown leaves from the under watered plants at a local shopping center or express my heartfelt concern for famous actresses artificial flower head pieces. What I would like to share with you are a few photos from movies that have flowers in them, which you probably didn’t even notice before…but now you will. Consider yourself CURSED!
