white flower design by Jessica Ormond Events - anemones, hellebores, snowberry

Hi Sarah,

I’m sorry I let so much time go by before sending  you these pictures. Here are a couple snapshots of the centerpieces I made with that wonderful pull from April. Several of the conference attendees couldn’t believe that all of the flowers were real, they thought for sure some of the varieties must be fake.

This was my first order with Mayesh. I have to say that I have never received such a well packed box! All the stems were straight, and cool to the touch. The ice packs were still half frozen. I instantly contacted an event designer friend, asked if she ever used Mayesh (she has not), sent her pictures, and strongly encouraged her to contact you. I am so impressed with your quality of product and service!

Memorial Day Flowers Under the #MayeshGivesBack initiative, it is important that Mayesh doesn't just sell flowers, but that we take the extra step for our community as well. This is where Memorial Day Flowers comes in.

The Flower House Detroit Preview EventThe Flower House Detroit Preview Event - flower wall 

Last night was the Flower House Detroit Preview Event.  Myself and Megan DeMara went to the event on behalf of Mayesh.  This is an exciting project by a group of very talented floral designers in the Detroit area to act as a model to turn blighted structures into creative platforms for art and business.  Lisa Waud, owner  of Pot & Box in Ann Arbor, Michigan, purchased two side by side blighted buildings in Hamtramck, Michigan. The one building was once a storefront, and the other is a two unit duplex.   She, along with Heather Saunders, of Heather Saunders Photography, Liz Stoltz of Parsonage Events, Jody Costello of J Costello Desgins, Holly Rutt of Sweet Pea Floral Design and Susan McLeary of Passionflower are the creative force behind this project. They plan to create a breathtaking weekend exhibition on October 16, 17 & 18.

flowers and antlers by Butterfly Petals

Here are the 2 week 4 #Mayeshgram winners!

The first pic below is by @butterflypetals.  I think once you see the pictures you will understand what caught our eye … antlers paired with flowers.  So fun!  But when I went to Butterly Petals’ website, I saw that their logo has antlers.  Double the fun.  As a side note, I had a few laughs when reading about their team.  Very creative! 

The second picture is by @mocharosepittsburgh.  We loved the colors infused with lots of light.  Gorgeous!  This design included bleeding heart, which has been around but really seems to be super popular this year.  Are you seeing that trend as well?

I plan on bringing our readers all things flora and fun, mixed with some serious posts about the flower business. I like to think of myself as pretty well-rounded - having passion for design (flowers, web, decor, etc.), marketing, photography, tech, and business. I'm a huge believer in continual education, so I'm always looking for new ideas and hope to share that journey with you!

Coming from a background in interior design, I'm trying my hand at flowers, and will be spending the next year learning the ins & outs of the business. I will be sharing my experiences as the new kid on the block, hoping to inspire other young, aspiring floral designers like myself. I grew up in the wholesale flower business, but hope to use my education and experience to eventually create a unique and innovative approach to floral design. Follow along for a blend of educational tid-bits, my thoughts & musings on the business, and a peek into my crazy journey into the world of flowers! #alitheflorist
