My daughter will be marred in NOLA on Halloween next year (2009). We have reserved Muriel's for that date. We were thinking of making some or all of the floral arrangements (centerpeices mostly) ourselves. We were thinking of getting some Lumina pumpkins (the newish off-white ones), gutting them and putting flowers in them (basically the pumpkins would act like a vase).
Can anyone recommend a nice place to buy flowers? Here at home we have the Boston Flower Exchange, which is a wholesale place but it is for florists only, it is not open to the general public. However, I have heard that some states have a similar place that is open to the public. Does NOLA have one?
Also, in the event that we decide to get all or some of the arrangements at a florist, can someone recomend one?
We would like to save money, but we want fabulous arrangements.
