Fall is here, the leaves are falling, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  For me, Fall reminds me that it is a  great time to use Sunflowers in floral designs!  I know many associate these large fiery blooms with summer, but my favorite time of year to see sunflowers in arrangements is for the Fall season.  My team member, Valerie Maurer, put together a great Mayesh Sunflower Variety Guide just for this occasion.  There are many wholesale varieties of sunflowers available but we wanted to highlight our staple products.

As I’m writing this blog post, I remembered that one of our Mayesh Design Star contest entrants submitted a great video with Sunflowers as the feature flower.  I dug it up and hope you enjoy Jermone Raska’s video:

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
