Our #MayeshGram Instagram Photo Challenge is into its third week, which means we need to announce our Week 2 winners!  Seriously, you guys, choosing just a few out of the hundreds is such a hard thing to do.  I love all of your work that you are sharing with us – you all are awesome!  But, we had to pick just a few, so here are three pictures that we will be reposting on our Instagram page. 

You will see a lush tablescape filled with a particular favorite peony, a gorgeous flower crown, and a crime scene created with flowers.  Yup, you read it right – you have to see it!

Flirty Fleurs Tulip floral design workshop

A few weeks ago, I was delighted to receive an email from Alicia of Flirty Fleurs, telling me about her upcoming tulip workshop that would be perfect for beginners. Well Alicia, you had me at tulips…and beginners. The next day, I was signed up and anxiously awaiting my second Flirty Fleurs workshop! Thursday finally rolled around, and I gathered up my tools, braved rush-hour traffic (I thought I was leaving traffic behind when I left LA…ha!) and made my way down to Georgetown to join three other ladies for the class. Some of you probably know, but tulips in Seattle are a big deal. BIG. The Skagit Valley is known for it’s tulip fields, and hundreds of people, tourists and locals alike, flock to the fields starting in April to get a look at these beauties. But I digress. I think my point is – I was very excited to get my hands on some PNW tulips and learn how to work with one of my favorite flowers!

wedding bouquet by Michelle Emiko Lywood
Lindsay from our LAX Shipping team sent me over this lovely testimonial from a new designer and Mayesh customer, Michelle Emiko Lywood.

I just wanted to send you a few photos from the last order we put together.  The flowers look absolutely incredible.  I know you see gorgeous flowers every day, but my world is a lot smaller and I just wanted you to know how thankful I am for all the time and effort you put into helping me which allows me to end up making beautiful things.  Have a great day, you rock!!

The first week of our #MayeshGram Instagram Photo Challenge had a fantastic kickoff!  Both Mayesh customers and employees got into the spirit as we had over 300 pictures posted with the #MayeshGram hashtag!  Thank you for your enthusiasm and keep it up over the coming weeks!

It is really difficult to choose favorites among so many great photos, but alas we have our winners. 

WINNERS, I will tag you in our Instagram reposts and will need you to send me your shirt size, whether that size is for a man or woman, and address so that we can send you your Mayesh t-shirt (please respond within 24 hours via our Contact Us page.) 

You will see that the winners cover a wide array of design – from romantic bouquets, to contemporary lines, a super cute Easter table, and a furry friend inspecting some blooms!  So for the period of April 1 – 7, the winners are (listed in no particular order):

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
