I’m so excited to share with you one last mom! Wendy from Paw Luxury is a Pet Loving Mom!

How cute is this super creative floral arrangement? Phil, one of the talented designers at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, has been revisiting a design style – “the poodle” – that was very popular in the florist world back in the day. I talked to Phil about Wendy’s blog and asked him to create a unique doggie design with an updated style in her honor.

Playing on the trend of carrying your doggie in your handbag, Phil used the tote from 1-800 FLOWERS.COM Handbag of Blooms bouquet as his base. He then fashioned a sweet little doggie from fresh carnations and nestled him in bed of fresh cut blooms. I think this is absolutely charming and I hope you do too!

Q&A with Wendy from Paw Luxury

What is the greatest lesson your mom has taught you?

My mother has taught me the importance of perseverance and faith. Being a single parent of 5 children she taught how not to give up on my faith in Christ in the midst of adversity and to overcome obstacles with courage when life’s roadblocks get in the way.

What’s one lesson you hope to pass on to you children?

Everyday as parents we leave out fingerprints on our kids. When I do become a parent I want my children to have a positive example of healthy and godly marriage and friendships. I want to teach them how to nurture healthy marriage, relationships and friendships through unconditional love, respect and admiration. There is definitely power in the tongue and it is important to speak words of affirmation by choosing words that encourage not discourage. Also, that marriage is about love and commitment, “till death do us part,” and perseveres in the hard times.

What’s your favorite Mother’s Day memory?

Since I am not a parent yet (only to a dog), my most memorable Mother’s Day memory has to be when I was 13. My siblings and I decided to make my hardworking mom breakfast in bed and had worked a few days on a song we had written about our appreciation for being the best mom ever. Til this day my mom talks about what that meant to her, giving love back is what Mother’s Day is all about.
