Mayesh Design Star Workshop Tour 2018 Dates

 

While it is mind blowing to us that we’re already nearing the end of our first Mayesh Design Star tour, we are so excited to embark on our second tour of floral design workshops with our brand new Design Star Kaylee Young of Flourish by Kay!

We all know how quickly time flies, so with 2018 fast approaching we wanted to announce next year’s tentative dates and locations. We are still finalizing them but wanted to share where we’re at to start getting you all excited!

This year, each workshop will take place over more than just a day, with a welcome cocktail party and possibly even a short activity the evening before! With so much material to cover and people traveling from sometimes up to a state away, we’re excited to get an early start and provide plenty of time to get to know one another before diving into the rest of the workshop.

So without further ado, our 2018 MDS Workshop Tour Dates!

My Mayesh Pull Challenge: Holly Chapple Edition

My Mayesh Pull Holly Chapple Flowers

 

A few months back, Kelly Girard of our LAX shipping department challenged Holly Chapple to a Mayesh Pull challenge using wholesale flowers from our Luxe Blooms line, and much to our delight, she accepted! If you’re unfamiliar with our Mayesh Pulls, check out the basic process here, and keep reading to see a real life example with the one & only Holly Chapple!

 


 

THE CHALLENGE

 

Kelly asked Holly and her team to send her one inspiration image to give her a feel for color palette and texture. From there, Kelly would put together a Mayesh Pull for Holly to design whatever she wanted and do a styled shoot.

Well, Holly took this challenge above & beyond what we even expected, taking her Instagram followers through the ENTIRE process via Instagram stories, from unpacking the boxes to designing to the final shoot!

And boy were we blown away by the results… Holly and her team knocked it out of the park, and really showed what our sales reps can pull of with one simple inspiration photo!

We hope you’re as smitten with this photoshoot as we were, and if you want your own Mayesh Pull, head over here to place your order!

How Many Flowers for Flower Wall

 

calculating flower wall flowers

I typically start my day checking social media pages and Facebook groups. This morning I came across someone asking how many roses do you need per square foot when designing a flower wall? If you have the same question, here is my answer that you can use if you are trying to cover any type of surface with flowers.

You may remember that I love flower math! So here is the math broken down step-by-step so you can figure it out depending on whatever flower(s) you want to use.

 

I am going to use a 5-foot by 8-foot flower wall as an example:

  1. calculate the total area of the wall in inches; (e.g. for a 5×8 wall …. 60 in. x96 in. = 5760 sq. in.)
  2. determine the average area of the flower you will use in square inches (e.g. 2 inch flower  – depends on variety this will need to be adjusted …. Multiply Pi (3.1416) with the square of the radius …. 3.1416*1*1 = 3.1416)
  3. divide wall area by flower area (e.g. 5760/3.1416 = 1833-ish)
  4. you will need roughly 1833 roses for a 5 ft x 8 ft wall, but that will need to be adjusted based on your design, spacing, other flowers that you may use, etc)

 

If you simply want to know how many flowers per square foot, again this depends on how wide the flower is.

If the flower is 2 inches wide, then:

  1. 12 inches x 12 inches = 144 square inches
  2. 2 inch flower = 3.1416 square inches
  3. 144/3.1416 = 45.83

 

You would need about 45 flowers to cover one square foot.

If the flower is 3 inches wide, then:

  1. 12 inches x 12 inches = 144 square inches
  2. 3 inch flower (3.1416*1.5*1.5) = 7.07 square inches
  3. 144/7.07 = 20.37

 

You would need a little over 20 flowers to cover one square foot.

Here are some other flower calculation blogs that I’ve done:

Art Alive 2017

rotunda design by Carlos Franco of Green Fresh Florals

Mayesh Wholesale was proud to partner with Carlos of Green Fresh Florals and contribute part of the beautiful fresh floral product for this year’s Art Alive installation at the San Diego Museum of Art.

This Gala event, held every year, showcases the museum’s stunning art and architecture marrying the beauty of art with the beauty of floral design. The annual San Diego Museum of Art fundraiser features floral interpretations of pieces from the museum’s permanent collection. Many area floral designers contributed their designs which helped bring over 12,000 visitors to witness the Museum’s floral transformation, raising more than $1.3 million! That money will benefit public programs and exhibitions.

Carlos Franco of Green Fresh Floral of Hillcrest designed and installed this year’s stunning rotunda display. An extravagant and rich color combination of vivid flowers from California and South America interpreted through Carlos’ vision, a “surrealist dream of sunrise and sunset”. Truly an immersive installation, Carlos’ creation began outside the Museum’s entrance and continued to the second-floor rotunda.

Franco, 42 is a third generation San Diego native who grew up in Paradise Hills and now lives in the College Area. This is his fourth time to design this installation for Art Alive and it was truly breathtaking.

We had the pleasure of sending one of our favorite cinematographers, Logan Martin of Talewind Visuals, to capture the installation of the surrealist dream of sunrise and sunset by Carlos and his team, as well as some of the other floral designs displayed at the event. Please sit back and enjoy the work of many artisans working together for this wonderful fundraising event!
