On November 4th, Mayesh Orange County hosted an open to unveil their new 2,795 square foot cooler. There was amazing food and beverage being served as well as good conversation and industry networking. The new layout of the location looks beautiful and what better way to celebrate than to have our very own Mayesh Design Star, Beth O’Reilly AIFD, come in, decorate and demo designs for the event. There were four vignette style set-ups to demonstrate holiday inspired design.
The first was a fall theme where she showed us how to make the studded pumpkins much like the ones seen on our November Inspired Floral Design video and along with vase arrangements using pomegranate and green wheat.
The second vignette was a how-to on making custom wreaths and how you would go about ordering one from Mayesh.
The third was a short explanation on how she made the beautiful white arrangement that was in our cooler lounge where we were serving drinks and cold appetizers.
And for the last vignette Beth demonstrated a full-on holiday themed wedding event. A sweetheart table dripping with roses, dresses made of Christmas greens, pinecone rosettes, a beautiful cake table and of course a stunning composite bridal bouquet.
If you were able to make it out, we hope you had as good of a time as we did! Thank you to Beth O’Reilly and all of the OC staff for creating such a great night!

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!
The other exciting part of this event was the team of volunteer designers who set up tables and did small presentations throughout the day. On top of starting Heliotrope for Hospice, Diane is also a local designer, educator, and AIFD certified, and helped put together this talented group of designers for us – Maryanne Mertz, Kristen Larson, Adrianne Smith, Annette Gomez, and Sara Eaton. Last but not least, Adelena Whittaker from Fleurology attended the event to share about her recent symposium and give us a taste of upcoming events – very exciting!
The turnout was awesome, customer interaction was bountiful, and the room was constantly abuzz. We’re so proud of our Carlsbad team for putting on such a wonderful and charitable event!
So I’ll be getting on a plane headed to Vegas for the Catersource/Event Solutions Idea Factory show this weekend. You’ll see our product throughout the entire event as we are the main floral supplier for Catersource.
In addition to all of the usual excitement found at this great show, we have decided to bring our 2013 Mayesh Design Star, Jodi Duncan AIFD, in to conduct design demonstrations on Tuesday, March 12th at our booth (#335)! Not only will you get to see a sampling of our amazing flowers and meet some of our fab floral professionals, but you’ll get to meet Jodi and get some great floral design ideas, tips, and tricks!
Also, be sure to check out AFR’s Design Challenge on Tuesday, March 12 at 1:30pm. Watch Lenny Talarico, CSEP and Jessica L. Zeidler try to out-design each other with just 30 minutes!! They will be running over to our booth to pick out their flowers for their design – it is so much fun to watch!
Last, but not least, our Mayesh blooms will also be showing up in many designers’ session – here’s the list:
- Preston Bailey
- Harmony Event
- David Everett
- David Price
- Meryl Snow
Hope to see you at the show!!
