MDS Workshop Venue Feature: 255 Miami Studio

 

We are just over a month away from our first official workshop of the 2018 MDS Workshop Tour: Curate & Create with Kaylee Young of Flourish by Kay! We’re excited to share the venue for our Miami workshop this coming January: 255 Miami Studio.

 

Located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District, 255 Miami Studio is a photo studio & event space with high ceilings, an open floor plan and plenty of natural light. Its clean white walls will create a simple gallery aesthetic and provide the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous flowers hand-selected by Kaylee and the professional photographs of each student’s work by fine art photographer Nicole Clarey.

{A great bonus, is that the studio has its own gated parking lot so you won’t have to drive around trying to find street parking!!}

While the space is clean & minimal, the neighborhood is anything but that. For those of you unfamiliar with the area, the Wynwood Arts District is a vibrant neighborhood home to over seventy galleries, museums, and collections. It is most famous for The Wynwood Walls, a unique outdoor destination featuring huge, colorful street murals by artists from around the globe.

Customer Testimonial: Flower Happy Floral

Customer Testimonial Flower Happy Floral

 

Another Thursday, another happy customer! We’re always so thrilled when a customer reaches out to let us know about a great experience with Mayesh, and it’s even better when they send photos of our flowers in their beautiful events!

Pamela Suarez of Flower Happy Floral in Hamilton, MT uses Mayesh to get some of the more unique product that is not readily available in her area, and this particular wedding was no different. Here is Pamela’s experience with LAX Shipping sales rep Sarah Girard:

 


 

I have been working with Mayesh for several years. When Alana and Micheal got engaged,  I knew their wedding would be one of the most special weddings that Flower Happy would ever be a part of. From the beginning, I knew we would be using Mayesh, without a doubt, as this event would require the best. Alana’s mother just happens to be one of my greatest friends and is a designer herself. I have respected her design work for years.

Once the pictures and the vision were shared with Sarah, she did an amazing pull. Mayesh had everything we dreamed of. It was a perfect recipe.

Alana and Micheal’s special day is one that will never be forgotten.

Thank you Sarah and Mayesh!

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:
