Maybe you feel like this when working on wedding flowers, but the planning and styling of the workshop was half the fun of having a workshop! Seeing all of the little details coming together was pure magic. The students had access to some of the best Japanese, Dutch and local floral product in the industry for their arrangements, and the end product just couldn’t have been more dreamy.
Part of the planning was putting together a special thank you gift. The students were treated to a private selection of Cameron Hughes wine, and a beautifully styled gift box by Salt and Pepper Co., full of items from: Sugar Paper, HomArt, Cameron Hughes, TOCCA, and Accent Decor.
Christy instructed the students on how to create their Oasis Floral florist netting structure to insert into their Accent Decor vessel. Once the vessels were prepped and ready to go, Christy shared how to utilize branches, where to place vines a.k.a. “dancers”, what to do with large “real estate” blooms, how she utilizes her Design Master color tools, where to put unexpected pops of foraged blooms, and many other invaluable techniques that she has picked up over the course of her career. Also, the students were given a few tips and tricks on utilizing Mayesh’s beautiful garland as either a swag, or a bride and groom chair backer.
The End Results
After the students were finished, they headed over to the photography station where they had their arrangement photographed on a fully styled table to use in their professional portfolio. Then, Jeremy Chou and Tristan Needham both gave a tutorial on photography and styling – how to always put your best foot forward with your images, and what tools have been most helpful to them in elevating their brands.

With our first Mayesh Design Star workshop just around the corner, we wanted to give you a little taste of just what you’d be getting as an attendee. You’ve heard about our fabulous Design Star, Christy Hulsey, so wanted to highlight some other people involved!
We’re pulling out all the stops for our first workshop, and have put together a dream team of vendors to help create an amazing experience for you.
So without further ado, I’d love to introduce two very important people vital to the success of our first workshop. This duo has worked together on many editorials and shoots, so we’re excited to see their vision come to life in January.
Tristan was introduced to us by Christy at the start of this whole journey. The two of them work side by side on many design projects, and have an impressive portfolio of beautiful shoots and events. Tristan is a stylist & editorial designer based in Savannah, Georgia, who believes in “simple, yet meaningful designs.”

Once Tristan came on board, she introduced us to Jeremy as the perfect candidate for photographing the workshop. With a background in Architecture, Jeremy is a fine art wedding photographer in Pasadena, CA. Similarly to Tristan, he uses his camera to tell the story of each couple and their special day.
Jeremy’s experience with weddings will translate beautifully as he helps us document the workshop, including individual close-ups of each attendee’s designs! These photos will be available to you for your personal and business use afterward, and are sure to be a fantastic addition to your floral portfolio. | Photo of Jeremy: Troy Grover
Like I mentioned before, Tristan & Jeremy have already worked on a number of projects & styled shoots before, so we wanted to share a few of their collaborations (click to view larger images):
