We recently received a beautiful letter from a Mayesh LAX Shipping customer, April Schwietz (owner of Mocha Rose Floral & Event Design) that I just had to share with you.  Thank you, April, for your kind words, support, and allowing me to share your testimonial with our readers!

I’m writing this letter because I feel like all too often, people write letters of complaint and forget to write about when a company is very good at what they do. I assume that’s especially true when your company works with a global and perishable product. The Mayesh...

Yep, it is officially that time of the year!  No, I’m not talking about the holidays, but rather the time when Pantone announces its color of the year!  For all of us design and color nerds, this news is always exciting.  As you may already know, the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year is Marsala.  I wanted to provide a little Marsala floral inspiration and wanted to find out what you think about it (click to view board on Pinterest).  Do you think Marsala will be a popular color for weddings, events and everyday florals?

Can you believe that it has been already been a month since our Miami branch opened its by-the-bunch cooler?  Everything is going really well and if you are in the area but haven’t stopped by yet, we hope that you do so soon!  During our National Open House (January 14), Miami will also be celebrating its opening as well.  Be sure to stay tuned for the details!  Here’s a peak inside their coolers (click to see full size pictures and product names): wholesale flowers in Miami

On November 14, Mayesh Las Vegas hosted their third annual Art in Full Bloom Benefit for SafeNest; a not-profit working with domestic crisis issues in Nevada.  The event had a great turn out and community response was absolutely amazing.

Over 30 local florists and 10 local artists exhibited their work along with the two winners of Mayesh’s national Floral Fantasy contest, Korie Mulleady and Noralyn Romak.  College of Southern NV student, Jessica Huth, won the student competition and for ‘Best Use of Color’; Danei Fowler and Rick Crause won Best in Art and Floral category, and Belinda Delcamp won Best in Flowers and Fashion.  A strolling pair of drag society matrons entertained the crowd with some comedy.  A silent auction, live demos by AIFD members, Julie Reed and Kenny Snauwert, and a live auction rounded out the evening.  Mayesh Las Vegas wants to thank everyone who participated and donated their time, effort,...

Starting last year, we brought in Japanese flowers and as you may know they were a pretty big hit!  We are kicking off the start of the Japanese flower season by our purchasing department touring the flower farms.  I’m totally jealous that I’m not there, but at least we can see a few pictures!  The pictures below are what Pam, our Director of Purchasing, has sent me so far.  Her new favorite?  The variegated pink ranunculus called Charlotte!    

The season is just starting, so quantities are limited.

We are still compiling all of the great images from Art in Full Bloom, but I wanted to share what Korie Mulleady, our Floral Fantasy winner, created for the event!  Such a great concept - an interactive flower wall in which event guests were invited to cover the domestic violence words with flowers.  Such a powerful message, don’t you think?

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
