Mayesh Houston & Allied Florists of Houston Recap

Allied Florists of Houston & Beth O'Reilly Hands-On Program


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.

Mayesh Portland Grand Re-Opening Recap


A few weekends ago, Mayesh Portland invited customers to join them in celebrating the opening of their brand new space in the Portland Flower Market! It was a great success thanks to manager Amy Gebhardt and the support of her team, not to mention how awesome the new space itself is! Large, open and fresh, Amy has done a great job transforming the space in to a completely branded, Mayesh location that is welcoming to customers and the ideal place to host a party. The furniture rentals she ordered from Westcoast Event Productions were even on brand – you made the marketing team proud, Amy 😉


Portland Grand Re-Opening


The event itself garnered about 200 guests plus a number of Mayesh employees and members of the family, myself included. The evening kicked off with a collaborative, hands-on demonstration with Debra Prinzing of & Katie Davis of Ponderosa & Thyme. Debra created two arrangements, focusing on all local product, while Katie made a textural hand-tied bouquet using a mixture of local and imported blooms. Debra & Katie were a great duo, and the audience loved them!
