Every year we’re asked if we’re going to continue doing our own Mayesh Lonely Bouquet, and every year, the answer is a resounding YES! We love this event just as much as you do, so we’re excited to announce that this year’s Lonely Bouquet Design Day will be held on Wednesday, June 28th at all Mayesh locations.
For those of you who are not familiar with 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. It’s a simple but powerful idea.
Our marketing director, Yvonne, was able to connect with Emily Avenson, of Fleuropen, who launched (inter)National Lonely Bouquet Day back in 2013 to encourage participation from others. I asked Emily how she came up with the name “Lonely Bouquet” and she said, “… I tried to think of something that would appeal to the average passer-by. People often hesitate to take the flowers, and the word “lonely” seemed like something that would trigger an empathetic response and encourage someone to take the flowers home, whether they “need” them or not.”
Emily wanted emphasize “the importance of spreading happiness, love, and good. Whether you choose to participate in the Lonely Bouquet project or find your own special way of cultivating kindness, the world we live in can use all of the flower-power that we have. It might seem silly to think that a small bunch of flowers can make a difference… but it can, and it does.”
Wednesday, June 28th (during store hours)

For next week’s workshop, we’re lucky enough to have three sponsors graciously providing their services: gorgeous, silk ribbon from tono + co., pretty tabletop candles from Creative Candles, and trendy furnishings & accessories from local rental company Folklore! We couldn’t be more excited to feature these three fabulous companies and have their products be a part of the day. So let’s get excited and learn a bit more about each of them!
tono & co. is the passion of Janelle Nicole Wylie, owner of the floral company Lavenders Flowers. Working closely with brides for almost a decade, color became the natural center of Janelle’s work leading her to the tradition of hand-dying fabrics. tono & co. finds its inspiration in the first-hand knowledge Janelle gained while studying painting & color theory in Florence, Italy. In Italian, tono refers to the gradual increase in color tone, creating a fluid color spectrum. Through the learning process of mixing oil paint, Janelle developed a sensitivity to color tone. Her passions for combining color and texture have evolved into the art of hand-dyed textiles. (Images by Sposto Photograpy)
Folklore is the result of best friends Taylor & Maggie’s combined passion for furniture & design, here’s a little about how it all began:
What’s Folklore you ask? Well technically it goes something like this:
“Traditional stories and legends attached to a particular people, place, or object passed down from generation to generation.”
We look for pieces that have a past and tell a story. Pieces that aren’t afraid to show where they’ve been and what they’ve been through.
It all started with one upholstered chair and after that we began furiously buying amazing pieces of furniture, accessories, and so on without looking back. Slowly but surely we decided we would rent them for weddings, baby showers, and other events. Our collection grew fast, so fast in fact it spilled out from the garage into our hallways, living room, bedroom, kitchen until we built a structure on Maggie’s property. Only we had grown out of that by the day it was finished being built. In June 2014 we moved Folklore to our first warehouse and after two years we needed to upgrade again! Now we have a warehouse and office in San Marcos where we work alongside our talented team of employees.
For more than 50 years the artisans at Creative Candles have been hand-dipping and hand-pouring candles in Kansas City, Missouri. A unique proprietary blend of high-quality waxes is used to create beautiful one-of-a-kind candles and our craftsmen add their personal touch to give every candle a rich, matte finish. The result is truly something special – an exceptional smokeless, dripless candle with a slow and even burn.
As a small family-owned business our focus is always on relationships. Creative Candles’ service and sales representatives, clients and vendors are extensions of our family and those relationships are of the utmost importance to us.
Raise your hand if you’re excited as we are! And if you still haven’t purchased your ticket, now is the chance with only two seats left!
We can hardly believe it, but we’re now less than two weeks away from our FOURTH workshop featuring Christy Hulsey of Colonial House of Flowers! This workshop will be held in La Mesa, CA, about a half hour from our Carlsbad location, and guys, it’s gonna be a good one.
The space is super fun & eclectic, we have some amazing new sponsors (more about them soon!) aaand there may or may not be a taco bar (I mean come on, we’re in San Diego, how could we not have tacos?)
So let’s check out some of the details!
THE SPACE: Brick + Laurel
Megan Welker Photography
Brick + Laurel Warehouse is a historic building built in the 40’s. When we first acquired the space we wanted to keep the mostly brick appearance to appreciate the original integrity of the building. The space has a very industrial look and high rafters. Common Good Coffee Roasters and Catalina Neal Floral Design share the warehouse which creates a real artistic collaborative environment. Our warehouse provides a great space for small gatherings of all kinds.
THE PHOTOGRAPHER: Nicole Clarey Photography
You may remember her from our vendor feature for the Cleveland workshop, and we’re excited to announce that Nicole is officially a part of our workshop team and will be traveling with us for the remaining six workshops!
Nicole was amazing to work with in Cleveland and will be an awesome addition to our team. Check out her gorgeous work on Instagram!
THE STYLIST: Tristan Needham Design
Our girl Tristan is back and has been helping behind the scenes to ensure that every detail is styled to perfection! Between Tristan’s fully styled table to Nicole’s photography skills, we can assure you that you’ll have some fabulous new photos to add to your portfolio following the workshop!
There are just two tickets left so if you’ve been thinking about attending, now is the time!
This year’s Catersource event took us to the vibrant city of New Orleans, and we had a blast! NOLA designer Kim Starr Wise used our line of Mayesh Luxe Blooms to create a gorgeous booth inspired by a Parisian boutique, and local rental company Pret a Fete provided us with gorgeous furnishings to help bring Kim’s vision to life. Here are a few images of our team & booth, followed by images of our flowers being used throughout the event!
Please DO pick the daisies! Senior Wedding and Event Designer, The JDK Group David Everett shows attendees how to create attractive and inexpensive centerpieces in the Hands-on Arena at CS2017 in New Orleans.
Expensive floral stems are not required to make a floral arrangement attractive. In this hands-on session at the CS2017 tradeshow attendees learned how to use inexpensive stems such as ferns, daisies, and eucalyptus to create attractive centerpieces.
The designer extraordinaire himself, David Everett Senior Wedding and Event Designer of The JDK Group. We love him!
These bold arrangements made a huge statement at the Tour de Lis Party held at Nola Motorsports Park for Catersource 2017 attendees.
This playful mix of florals and balloons added oomf to this darling garden themed station at the Tour de Lis Party.

We had a blast at Catersource this year, in part because of our beautiful booth design! Local New Orlean’s designer Kim Starr Wise executed her vision to highlight our Mayesh Luxe Blooms to a T, using gorgeous rentals provided by NOLA Event Rentals company Pret A Fete.
Owner Emily Shaya gave us the lowdown on her fabulous company, which was a result of her frustration in finding the perfect rentals for her own wedding.
Pret a Fete was founded to help you capture some of the New Orleans magic for your event, by offering stylish and sophisticated party rental decor and furniture. Our inventory contains high-quality vintage, antique and handcrafted pieces in a range of styles. We have worked hard to collect pieces that are not only beautiful, but functional, too.
Here are some fun vignettes for a little inspiration!
