On November 15th, The Allied Florists of Houston held their monthly meeting at Mayesh Houston, featuring our very own Beth O’Reilly AIFD CFD TMF as this month’s presenter! Early in the day, a group of designers participated in an intensive hands-on workshop with Beth, followed by the evening event & program. Leading up to the presentation, guests mingled among one another while nibbling on delicious bites from Eidelweiss Catering and sipping on refreshing drinks.
Beth’s interactive demo featured a number of gorgeous designs, and like the true educator she is, Beth made sure to explain everything – from mechanics to container choice, to the reasons behind her flower choices. She engaged her audience and answered questions throughout the whole presentation, and talked techniques using Design Master products and different ways to incorporate them into designs. Beth featured a wide array of designs, from everyday sellable designs to over the top floral art. In the eloquent words of Alex Torres AIFD CFD TMF, her program was an “ethereal vision of floral divinity. Beth’s aesthetic point of view ranges from unadulterated classic form to unabashed bohemian rhapsody. Her exquisite use of color and floral selection is second to none.” Quite the ringing endorsement!
It was a wonderful evening for all in attendance, and we’re so glad we had the opportunity to host the last remaining Allied in Texas. For a more in-depth and beautifully written description of the event, be sure to check out Alex Torres’ article in the Allied Florist’s of Houston magazine. And if you’re in the area, head over to their website to learn about upcoming shows & educational opportunities in 2017.

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.
Today’s sympathy market is ever-changing. As retail florists we must meet our customers’ expectations. At this program, Kevin will explore cost-effective ways of design and construction while infusing today’s trends into our sympathy work. Join us as we delve into the ‘business of sympathy’.

Hi there! Hey! Hello! Welcome to part two of my Francoise Weeks design workshop saga. We left off on me abandoning my project and breaking for dinner. Once our bellies were full and some energy had been restored we moved on to the main event, the thing that I was the most excited for… SHOES! The shoes are one of Francoise’s signature designs. When I first got hip to her style, the shoes were my favorite! Now that I had a few designs under my belt and was feeling a little more comfortable I was ready to dive right in and make my very own floral shoe!
Francoise did her demo and released us into the wild (aka workspace) to once again pick out our product and let our creativity run free. Since the beginning of the day I had been thinking about what I would do with my shoe. What product could I use? Would I work with only flowers? Only foliage? I felt prepared to tackle the shoe. I had been eyeballing some leucadendron all day; I thought it would make a scale-like effect on the shoe. I made up my mind and I went for it. I ripped the leaves off one by one and began gluing them onto the stiletto heel. As I laid the leaves in place I realized that I was laying them down in the wrong direction. Francoise had mentioned in demo the importance of the direction you lay your leaves or petals. I thought I was going the right way but the further I got it became clear that this wasn’t going to work. At this point my fingers were covered in glue and everything was stuck on me rather than the shoe itself. It looked like I had tar and feathered my own hand. I decided to rip off all the leaves I had glued and start over.
Now that I had figured out the right direction, I was in my groove and everything went smooth. I got all of my leaves down, added some petals on the toe and heel using the same technique I used with my headpiece, and finished it off with a cluster of garden spray roses on the toe. Although it was simple I loved it. It looked wearable.
Again I looked around the room and was blown away! Each shoe was so different. Some looked like they were found in the forest, some looked like they should be on the red carpet and some even looked edible! By the end of the class I was happy with what I made. It looked like a collection and the experience showed me that I can make stuff out of flowers – I just might not be cut out for the traditional style of flower arranging.
I was so impressed with how creative this group was. Not one item in both days of the class looked anything like another and all of them were extremely beautiful. Check out all the different styles of shoes below. Again, which one are you more drawn too?
