Dreaming about breaking out the boxwood hedges for another event... it’s amazing how you can transform one classic piece into so many styles.
I’m thinking this Easter maze used for #hunchoday might work around a stage for a Gala. (I wonder if there are any eggs still hidden in them? 🤔)

I’m sitting here trying to write about myself for the Auburn University HRMT alumni spotlight of the year.... Do I talk about how hard it has been, and how much I still have to learn?
Do I brag about the days I’ve had to pinch myself at how insanely lucky I feel to do what I love?
Or, do I talk about the “in the middle times”? Where I mostly find myself... the day-to-day... where I choose to stay determined, work my butt off, and keep myself creative?
In all the days of flower orders, scheduling employees, moving buckets, pitching event designs, choosing linens, figuring out how much money we made, balancing on ladders, and chiropractics visits... I do truly think that what has set C.Wayman Floral & Events apart, is the level of customer service I hope we provide.
And, that, I must admit, I learned sitting in class in my Hospitality classes.
Every bride, every client... I hope they feel valued and special. I hope that they feel like I truly do care, and that we are providing more than just flowers, we are providing an experience.
So, thank you to my teachers that invested in me in the College of Human Sciences at Auburn, oh so, many (10 years) ago... I may have skipped class too many times and showed up late.... but.... I was paying attention. ☺️ #dreamjob #lovewhatyoudo #cwaymandesign #auburnuniversity #aucollegeofhumansciences #auhrmt #hospitalitymanagement
Fall. I love the textures and added elements... who doesn’t like pheasant feathers that the groom hunted? (He probably didn’t expect that this would be how they would be used, but, I’m ok with it!) #fallweddinginspiration #auburnweddings #opelikaweddings #alabamaweddings #atlantaweddings #fallwesding #pheasantfeathers
Another week that holds yet another #celebritybabyshower planned by @lemiga
Last week we were at @mo_atlanta to celebrate the Rand twins. Everything was a combination of pink and blue in honor of both babies.
This week, our theme is butterflies! So, I am crafting a few little beauties to land in the flowers. 🦋
There really is so much joy at a baby shower.... it’s definitely starting to compete with being a part of someone’s wedding day!

If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
So, I’m feeling like I’m crawling these days... when the doctor says you’ve been walking on a fractured ankle for months... then, the boot I was wearing to “keep moving” in has hurt my back.... (apparently you aren’t supposed to climb ladders and carry buckets and large arrangements in a boot)... so, I’ve got to heal my body in order to move forward.
I suppose I’ll take this as a lesson in patience and depending on others.
And, even in this small struggle, I am hoping to be mindful of those out there fighting the hard fights... against inequality, mental health, abuse, and so much more.
Let’s not lose heart... let’s keep moving... even if we are crawling... let’s crawl together.

Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity, and change. -Brene Brown
I told someone the other day that my Instagram was a “diary” of sorts.
It really is true.
This year has been the “best of times” and the “worst of times”. I have gone through personal struggles, and I truly believe that through that, through feeling incredibly vulnerable, a new creative spirit within me has emerged.
I hope to be able to use all I have learned to be a better designer, and more importantly, a better person.
Thank you for being on this journey with me. Even if you’re just scrolling through!

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. -George Eliot

There is an abundant need in this world for your exact brand of beautiful. -Lisa Terkeurst
What you have to offer matters.
Surround yourself with people who help you recognize your brand of beautiful. A true friend can see your beauty, even when you don’t.

How can we seek a compassion that can stand in awe of what people have to carry, rather than stand in judgement at how they carry it? -Greg Boyle
We love flowers. But, we hope it is evident that we strive to love people always- no matter background or circumstance.
