Crazy About Stephanotis

What is it about Stephanotis that captivates us? Maybe it’s the subtle scent or the flawless white waxy bloom or the jewels you can add to the centers…

Remember when Jessica Simpson carried a 500-stem bouquet of Stephanotis (created by Mark’s Garden) in her Texas wedding to Nick Lachey ? The media reported that the bouquet took 12 hours to create and cost around $8000.00!

…apparently a 500-stem Stephanotis bouquet can’t insure a long and happy marriage…

Have a great Wednesday! I think I better start my Christmas shopping today…wouldn’t want to wait till the last minute.
