2017 Memorial Day Flowers Recap

 

 

Two weeks ago, we participated once again in a very special event, Memorial Day Flowers. Memorial Day is a day to recognize the fallen men and women who have served our country, and we are honored to be a part in such an important event. We received a few sets of images from places we sent roses, we hope they’ll inspire you to participate next year!

We participated in the Memorial Day celebration at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Coalinga. There was a great turn out from our Avenal community as you can see by the picture.  Thank you to Avenal Police Dept and their explorer program.

We gave them away at a local cookie stand who was giving vets free cookies at our farmer’s market and then at the cemetery.  We marked the flags with roses (each flag has a dog tag on it.)   And some we just gave to people or placed on a grave who were there at the cemetery.

2015 Art in Full Bloom Recap

Art in Full Bloom 2015
(Floral Fantasy winner, April Schwietz Mason of Mocha Rose)

This was the 4th annual Art in Full Bloom at our Mayesh Las Vegas branch. Each year it gets bigger and better and this year was no exception! Not only did we have an amazing turnout of about 200 guests but the art and flowers were out of this world. This year we added a new piece to the puzzle with a fashion show of designs from David Tupaz, Las Vegas’ premier couture designer. As always the entertainment for the night was provided by our two favorite ladies, Norma (Jim McCoy) and Doris (Jim Grifall) who gave us continuous laughs both on the stage and out mingling in the crowd. Our very own Design Star, Beth O’Reilly AIFD was also in attendance and gave a quick demo on how to make a flower crown. We even had a new addition to our photo booth… Johnny Depp! Well, the wax version of him from Madame Trousseau Wax Museum.

Mayesh would like to thank everyone who stopped by and joined in the festivities. Without you we wouldn’t have been able to raise over $6,000 for Safe Nest which is the driving force of this truly spectacular evening. We would also like to give a big thank you to Jim McCoy “Norma” and Jim Grifall “Doris”, MGM Resorts Events and of course the Floral Fantasy winners –Toni Andrade of Mayesh LAX and April Schwietz Mason of Mocha Rose Pittsburg, for making such outstanding designs. Great job to both of you ladies!

Make Someone Smile Week in Phoenix, AZ

For the Teleflora Make Someone Smile and Flowers for Kids event at our Phoenix branch, we had 13 Adults (8 customer shops) and 17 children participate. Flowers are delivered to anyone who might need a little pick me up and to help promote the industry.  Here is a slide show that Dave Tagge put together of the 3 days of production. Enjoy!

Parties For Purpose

Parties for Purpose

 

Our Phoenix branch recently donated flowers to a local organization called Parties for Purpose. It is such a great concept that we had to share a little bit about this wonderful organization! Parties for Purpose puts together birthday parties for under privileged kids in the metro Phoenix area. For this circus themed event, we donated a variety of fun, colorful flowers including lilies, carnations, pompons, roses and more. The Ringling Brothers were also involved in this event, which celebrated twenty deserving children… how fun is that?!

We received this shout out from them and couldn’t be more proud to work with great organizations like this one!
