The first time I decided to collaborate with another planner on a project the feedback I received was less than positive. I was asked questions about why, how things would work and who would receive the credit. Many times we create these new works of art for the possibility of them being submitted to large blog or publications therefore gaining ourselves some publicity and secondly proving something – often to ourselves and also to the general public. When collaborating with another in the same business, there is possibility of confusion.
There’s also the possibility of seeing things in a new light and finding new ways of doing things. In all reality, collaboration shows teamwork, how one can feed and thrive off of each other’s ideas inspiring even more magical creations to be born.
Other than carrying a few boxes of plates and placing a couple spoons on the tabletop, for this creative masterpiece I can take no credit. This was the brainchild of another flower friend with imagination and visions that captive me to the point of no words. Everything about the Team Flower Workshop was beyond belief and I find myself giddy with excitement every time I see another glimpse of the day in my inbox.
My Team Flower friends made this happen, along with many other talented hands, and now I am simply lucky enough to be able to help share the results (which were also featured over on Once Wed last month).
