In early November, Mayesh took a trip to Holland for the International Floriculture & Horticulture Trade Fair. Here is a little taste of the new garden rose varieties that will be coming to Mayesh soon which are not on the market yet!
Over the past two weeks, we’ve been receiving stories & photos from customers who participated in the Memorial Day Flowers event. It was a day to use flowers to honor our U.S. service men and women who are no longer with us. We hope you had a great Memorial Day as well, remembering heroes past.
This year, we participated in the delivery and placement of 18,000 roses at the Arizona National Cemetery in Phoenix. The coordination of the volunteers was done by our customer Judy Haenel from Tulip Tree. Of the approximately 200 volunteers, six of them were our customers. Four employees participated, two brought their children. Mario brought his son. Krista’s daughter brought her Honor Society group and they received Community Service hours and got their picture taken with Senator John McCain. The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will all receive badges. It was meaningful for all involved.
Simply Flowers of Fresno, California
We would like to express our gratitude to Mayesh and it’s partners for allowing us to participate in this program. Not only was the community extremely grateful but it was a life changing experience for my staff. There were moved and honored to be a part of this event. The entire staff indicated that it made theirs hearts warm.
Royal Events and Design of Charlotte, North Carolina
These are the ladies that helped me hand them out. They are from the chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and The Daughters of the War of 1812. The service was very moving, and the people that we gave the roses to were happy that they had something to put on their love ones grave.
Your Image Floral of Ojai, California
We were so lucky to participate this year and can’t wait for next. We had about ten Military spouses and their children and eight Active Duty in uniform join us on Monday to place the roses at Ivy Lawn in Ventura CA. This was so special and touching for each and everyone of them. I already have a list of people that are looking forward to joining us next year.
Since we were the only Florist in Ventura County to have ever participated and that we had Military spouses and active duty involved the local paper joined us.
Klamath Flower Shop LLC of Klamath Falls, Oregon
I wanted to share the pictures from our Memorial Day festivities here in Klamath Falls. We had an amazing time talking with everyone and handing out complimentary roses during the Memorial Day ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park in honor of those who served. We handed out 350 roses yesterday. I would say about half stayed at the memorial and the other half were taken to grave sites throughout the city.
We are so thankful to Mayesh for making this possible!
Floral Fantasy of Madera, California
We had an incredible time doingWe had an incredible time doing this service for the Vets and their families. We had such a great response to the roses which were incredible!! Most beautiful red roses ever. We fresh cut, conditioned, stored for Monday…all were perfect. We set up our banner, some flags that I purchased to give away also, at Courthouses Park which is a historical landmark and in the center of Madera. The Avenue of flags were flowing in the wind, each with a name of a Veteran on the pole, spectacular. Our community does an awesome job of putting on the observance of our armed forces who gave their all. I was honored to have been a small part of it. Thank you Mayesh and the Greenrose growers for providing such a great service. We were so happy to be selected to participate in such a wonderful event.
Beautiful Blooms by Jen of Sylvania, Ohio
We partnered with a customer who works for Wreaths Across America. He enlisted the help of some cute brownies to help him pass the roses out to veterans and their families.
The Aria Hotel of Las Vegas, Nevada
We are very grateful for the generosity of roses that were sent. Numerous employees had to work Memorial Day & it warmed the hearts of many to share this visual arrangement honoring all our Troops serving past and present. The arrangement created a focal point to take photos with coworkers and loved ones. We are very blessed to live in the nation we live in because of those that have served and fought for our freedom. Thank you for making this a wonderful Memorial Day 2016.
Heath Florist of Salem, Oregon
This was the first time we had participated in the Memorial Day Flowers and we LOVED it!! My business partner is also my sister so we share the same sense of humble gratitude for our Veterans. It was a huge honor for us to be able to give back to our community in this way. We joined City View cemetery on Monday for their ceremony and were out of our flowers within about twenty minutes! This is going to be a new tradition for Heath Florist now! Thank you, so very much, to everyone that made this program possible.
Four Muses Floral of Portland, OR
I traveled around with the Post 21 American Legion Riders, Color Guard, and the Women’s Auxiliary Group representatives. We performed ceremonies at 8 different cemeteries/memorial sites around Yamhill County, Oregon, ending at the Evergreen Aviation Museum’s Veteran’s Memorial. After each ceremony, members placed roses on Veteran’s graves. Hope you enjoy the photos, and thank you for making this possible.
Do Floristry of Ann Arbor, Michigan
With the roses we created huge 12″ and 9″ hand-glued composite ‘poppy pretenders’ that we used throughout the gala decor in the cocktails, bars, courtyard and reception entrance area. The arrangements were enormous! My personal favorite detail is the red rose and silver thistle wreaths I created for the two bronze lions flanking the entrance to the courtyard. The remaining 75 roses were distributed to guests, most of whom were active new enlistees, military, veterans and their families as they left for the evening. Big thanks for making this annual event super special!
Now & Forever Flowers & Décor of Michigan
Memorial Day was awesome!! We had the opportunity to meet with so many families who lost loved ones who served our county. What was a sad day for many, we were able to make it a beautiful day with the roses and simply taking the time to listen to their stories. We first began our venture at the Gary Miles Veteran’s Center in Ecorse, MI and spent most of our day there sitting and talking to veterans who lost fellow soldiers. We then went to the International Gospel Center in Ecorse, MI where many of the families gathered to honor the loved ones they have lost. The dynamic of the roses seemed to change the atmosphere everywhere we went. We were even asked to go to a few other venues to spread our joy with roses that day. It was an amazing day! Thank you so much for allowing us to spread such joy here in Michigan. We look forward to celebrating the bravery of every man and woman who served our great country every year from now on.
Congratulations, you’ve made it through the busiest day of the year! While you’re probably all in recovery mode, we thought we’d share a fun tip that was passed along to us by a customer.
Stephanie Prenatt of FH Weddings & Events in Tampa, FL had a bride who was set on having the garden rose “Green Eye” in her wedding. Unfortunately, it is no longer available due to low productivity, but Stephanie found a unique solution to give her bride what she wanted! She combined the garden rose “Patience” with a bit of green Dianthus, and violà, a DIY Green Eye garden rose.
Thanks for sharing Stephanie!
Valentine’s Day 2016 is quickly approaching. Soon you will be standing on a floor of stems and leaves as you process your wholesale roses and other flowers in preparation for your holiday orders. Here at Mayesh preparations have already begun. Juan, of our purchasing department, is currently in Ecuador visiting our rose farms. He is there to inspect our boxes (well, technically they are your boxes) and help manage the logistics to ensure timely deliveries. This is a crazy time of year for us all and we strive to take the extra step for you, our customer, to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible.

January is quickly coming to a close, which means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!! Crazy, right?!
Everyone here at Mayesh is preparing for the holiday and I had a few things I wanted to share with you!
I have a quick video to share with you. While most importers are loading up their coolers with flowers for Valentine’s, Mayesh does not believe in storing flowers and is in fact cleaning the coolers in anticipation of the Valentine’s shipments that will start around February 4th. You can see for yourself in this 30 second video clip:
Next, I thought I’d bring out some fun Valentine’s Day design inspiration. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the following videos to get your creative juices flowing!
