We're excited to share this fun infographic showcasing five days in the life of a Coral Charm peony! There is so much variation in just five days, but each is so unique and pretty in its own way. Which stage is your favorite?

With the 2016 AIFD Symposium just around the corner, we've partnered with them to give away three of the much coveted Education Passes!

For a chance to win, we're asking you one simple question: What inspires you? Whether it be architecture, nature, or fashion, we want to see your interpretation of what inspires you in flower form. Inspiration is such a broad term that this is really your chance to go crazy and design what you've always wanted to! A Mayesh Panel will review all submissions and award three (3) grand prizes!

Guest Blogger: Shelley Anders - Mayesh Carlsbad Branch Buyer 

The Carlsbad Mayesh crew had a fantastic evening under the stars and amidst the beautiful ranunculus of the famous Carlsbad flower fields on Wednesday night. Mayesh was one of the sponsors of the Field to Vase event.

We hope you enjoyed our first Mayesh Floral Forum discussing floral knives vs. shears! With wedding season upon us, this week we thought we'd ask our designers what wedding & event trends they are seeing for the 2016 season. While the response overwhelmingly pointed towards the natural, garden-inspired look, each designer offered a slightly different & unique perspective, so I'm just going to go ahead and lay 'em all out here!

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
