We are always excited to see how far our customer’s creativity can go and that is why we love the Floral Fantasy contest so much! As with any contest, picking a winner wasn’t easy but our team got together and picked the design that really spoke to the “disco celebration of color” theme for our annual Art In Full Bloom event.
Without further ado we would like to congratulate Brent Wang of Miguel Changs on being the winner of this years Floral Fantasy contest.
Brent describes the concept for “Disco Cell” as “a peak into the inner implosion of prismic color activity within one mirrored cell of a disco ball. Using reflections, lights and color, it creates a voyeuristic experience with a disco ball at the cellular level”.
We can dig that!
Can’t wait to see your vision come to life, Brent!

Wow, wow, wow! As usual, when Mayesh tries something different, we have no idea how it is going to go. And once again, we had so many great people step up to the plate and throw their hat into the ring for our latest Mayesh Design Star contest! Thank you to all who entered – we greatly appreciate all of the time and consideration you put into your entry. After combing through the submissions – watching the videos, looking at the portfolios and reviewing the workshop outlines – I’m happy to say that we selected the 2017 Mayesh Design Star!
We have had the pleasure of working with this year’s winner on a couple occasions – she has done a Mayesh Instagram Takeover and an interview. She is a big Mayesh supported and is always giving us love on social media (long before we started the contest). Our star is a Chapel Designer that has been featured on all of the top blogs with a style that is very on trend. Also, I love that her shop has been around for 50 years and she helped resurrect and rebrand a beloved family business.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have the great pleasure of introducing Christy Hulsey, of Colonial House of Flowers, our 2017 Mayesh Design Star!! Congratulations Christy!
My team will be working with Christy on the workshop details and we will post the Mayesh Design Star workshop schedule very soon! Stay tuned. In the meantime, check out Christy’s video:
Enter to become our 2017 Mayesh Design Star! We are shaking things up again. Educational floral workshops are hot, and we think it’s time to join the fun! We are looking for someone to lead a series of workshops that will take place at several of our locations throughout the year, as well as create several time lapse-style design videos to share with our customers.
So how is this going to work? To enter, you will need to submit a detailed outline for a 1-day workshop, a design portfolio, and a short video showcasing your sparkling personality. We don’t want to put too many parameters around the entry materials as we don’t want to limit your imagination. You are an artist and we want you to be just that!
We will select our favorite designer for the job and schedule 4 or more workshops for the following year at select Mayesh locations. The prize is not a trip this year, but rather a percentage of the revenue collected from the workshop registrations, with a potential of bringing home up to $5,000 or more!
We will create time-lapse style design videos to music – no talking, just you flexing your creative muscles and creating something awesome! Keep in mind you will be talking to a group of up to 25 enthusiastic flower design lovers at each workshop and we want you to be comfortable doing so. Whether you are an industry veteran who has been involved with workshops and teaching for years or you would like to get into the workshop scene, but just haven’t done it yet, we think this is an amazing opportunity to spread your design wings.
The 2016 AIFD Symposium is coming up and we were excited to work with AIFD to award 3 Symposium education passes! We held a contest, inspired by this year’s theme “Inspire”, in which the participants selected something that inspired them and created a complimentary floral design. Thank you to all who participated!! Our 3 winners are Fabian Salcedo, Michael McCarthy, and Pamela Ball – congratulations!!
“I wanted to make a mask, but I wanted it to feel alive and or growing over the face in some sense. I used flat cane lined with wire and wrapped in yarn as the frame. I liked the red and gold palette and that nod to an Asian aesthetic. As I was creating I began to envision a kind of futuristic floral cyborg. It was the combination of these three ideas that got me to this final product.”
“Nature and floral design go hand in hand. It is a prominent source for inspiration in many artists. From the source photo (Bridal Veil Falls II by Peter Ireland), my design was inspired by the movement and flow of the waterfall, the lush green burst of color, and the tension of rugged and smooth textures.”
“My floral design is based on the enchanted forest. I love how nature and fashion come together to create another world. It is a world that captures the magic and beauty of flowers. A setting in a fantasy world in a fairy godmother’s magical workshop in the heart of the enchanted forest. A quiet place that the curious and adventurous search for, but only the one with the truest heart can see. Peak into this other world and allow peace and happiness to wash over you. Allow the magical scene to envelope you in pure imagination where magic truly exists.”
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!
1. Describe your floral inspiration
2. Upload a collage of both your inspiration and floral design (.jpg only)
Dream up your most creative & inspired design and you may be heading to all of the Symposium shows! Good Luck! ENTER NOW

Remember a few months ago when we had our Open House Collective Tablescape contest? Well, incase you had forgotten (this year has certainly flown by!) we’ve put together a little online magazine – “e-book” – if you will, to remind you of the absolutely beautiful tablescapes that YOU helped us create for charity!
It was so fun to see how each branch interpreted the challenge; from chic, garden-inspired designs to a dog’s paradise, the variety was incredible. Click below to see them all!
