2015 AIFD Symposium, Journey, Denver, CO

As my AIFD Facebook friends are chatting about the last couple of days, it is Pre-Symposium week!  Everyone is making last minute preparations for their travels to Denver, CO for the 2015 AIFD Symposium. We too are finalizing the small details for next week as well since we are Gold Elite Partners!

This week it's all about the effortless wild flower trend. Our first #MayeshGram winner, @lauramccarty, complemented a stunning bride in a colored gown with a gorgeous bouquet of bright pinks, rich burgundies (hello color of the year, marsala!) and whimsical greens to finish it off. Such a beautiful photo! Our second winner,@bloomsbybreesalee, made us giggle at her caption, and gives us a little taste of what it's like behind the scenes ... all the leaves! Can't wait to see what these turn into!

Our wonderful Carlsbad Team!

If you hadn't heard, a couple of weeks ago our Carlsbad location threw a fabulous (and very successful!) Open House. As a fun pre-wedding season theme, our team down in sunny San Diego decided to focus on roses and garden roses, promoting them for the upcoming wedding season. They also used this as a charitable opportunity, with all money raised going to Heliotrope for Hospice, a local non-profit run by Diane Citrowske. Heliotrope is an awesome organization that repurposes event flowers into new arrangements to deliver to local hospice care patients, working with local event designers, wholesalers, and even Trader Joe's to get these weekly flower donations. Because they have no funding, we love to help raise money for them whenever possible, and this was the perfect occasion to do that! They had forty Miche handbags donated to sell for fundraising, and ended up raising over $500 for Heliotrope! Congrats Team Carlsbad!

Mayesh Lonely Bouquet Design Day 2015

Calling all Mayesh customers!

International Lonely Bouquet Day is officially held on June 28th this year. In celebration, we thought it would be fun to help hundreds of florists spread happiness and the love of flowers through our next Mayesh Lonely Bouquet Design Day being held just a couple days before on Friday, June 26th!

The event will take place on the Friday before the International official date. We will provide a great selection of complimentary flowers for you to create a bouquet, we will snap a picture, and then you, the designer, will leave the pretty posie for an unsuspecting recipient. For those of you who may not know about The Lonely Bouquet, here is a quick summary: it is a global initiative with a goal of making strangers happy with flowers. Participants create a small bouquet, add a “take me” tag, and leave the bouquet somewhere public to be found and taken home.

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
