Dayton's Proposal

One of the things I love the most about running a flower shop, is getting to peak into the romance of different people's lives. One of the most romantic times in people's lives is when a man proposes to a woman. So of course, I LOVE getting the phone call about a guy needing help with his plans to propose!

This past Memorial Day weekend, we got a call from Dayton. He told me his plan, and I got just as excited as I would if a brother called, telling me about asking his girlfriend to marry him. Dayton had a couple of logistical obstacles, which we helped him with, but here's how he popped the question!

Dayton's girlfriend Lindsey received an email on Saturday morning, telling her to make the trip from Newnan (where they live) to our flower shop to begin a little scavenger hunt. She has GPS, so she was to program in a new destination with each stop.

At about 2pm, Lindsey walked into Flower Bar pretty confused. She said she wasn't sure why she was there. I gave her the bouquet Dayton ordered (see picture) along with a card, and a gift certificate to Victoria Secret. The card had the store's address on it and note to shop for something she liked. After her shopping spree, she received instructions to go to The Embassy Suites downtown at Centennial Park.

At the hotel, she received a room key, where a masseuse would be on call for a nice massage. When she was done, her final instructions were to walk down to Centennial Park and look for Dayton. There he would propose! Their final stop- dinner at Ruth Chris Steak House downtown. Isn't it oh so romantic!!?

Thank you to Dayton for letting us post about his big day.

...I wonder if they are planning their wedding flowers yet.
