When I was recently invited to take part in the Mayesh National Open House, I was honored. Mayesh is a florist’s best friend, providing the highest quality, most unusual products sourced from around the world. I must confess that going into a warehouse full of flowers still gets me excited. And when I heard that my design was to promote the use of garden roses, well….
You may not know that garden roses have been doing some maturing lately, thanks to some pretty mind-boggling advances in the science of growing flowers. They have stunningly long graceful stems, the blooms are sturdier yet still delicate and full, and the fragrance is even more intoxicating.
I had absolutely no idea which direction my design would take me and decided to just let the flowers inspire and guide me. And inspire me they did! The minute I saw the blush colors and delicate petals, I had visions of my wedding planning clients, all my brides, gleaming with excitement and anticipation of a ……….garden rose bouquet. Timeless, elegant and effortless. Effortless, so they think! So, I went to work.
Want to know what I ended up designing? Well, the big reveal will take place on Wednesday, January 23rd and we’ll have lots of pictures posted soon after that.
