MDS Vendor Feature: Tristan Needham & Jeremy Chou


With our first Mayesh Design Star workshop just around the corner, we wanted to give you a little taste of just what you’d be getting as an attendee. You’ve heard about our fabulous Design Star, Christy Hulsey, so wanted to highlight some other people involved!

We’re pulling out all the stops for our first workshop, and have put together a dream team of vendors to help create an amazing experience for you.

So without further ado, I’d love to introduce two very important people vital to the success of our first workshop. This duo has worked together on many editorials and shoots, so we’re excited to see their vision come to life in January.



Tristan Needham Design | @tristanneedhamdesign


Tristan was introduced to us by Christy at the start of this whole journey. The two of them work side by side on many design projects, and have an impressive portfolio of beautiful shoots and events. Tristan is a stylist & editorial designer based in Savannah, Georgia, who believes in “simple, yet meaningful designs.”

She is the brains behind the aesthetic of this workshop, and is passionate about telling a story through her designs. | Photo of Tristan: The Happy Bloom



Jeremy Chou Photography | @jeremychouphotography


Once Tristan came on board, she introduced us to Jeremy as the perfect candidate for photographing the workshop. With a background in Architecture, Jeremy is a fine art wedding photographer in Pasadena, CA. Similarly to Tristan, he uses his camera to tell the story of each couple and their special day.

Jeremy’s experience with weddings will translate beautifully as he helps us document the workshop, including individual close-ups of each attendee’s designs! These photos will be available to you for your personal and business use afterward, and are sure to be a fantastic addition to your floral portfolio. | Photo of Jeremy: Troy Grover


Like I mentioned before, Tristan & Jeremy have already worked on a number of projects & styled shoots before, so we wanted to share a few of their collaborations (click to view larger images):



Oldfield Plantation Elopement Shoot / Oldfield, SC

Flowers / Colonial House of Flowers (aka our Design Star!)


Lewis and Clark Elopement Shoot / Portland, OR Workshop

Flowers / Flourish by Kay


Cannon Beach Bridal Shoot / Portland, OR Workshop 

Flowers / Flourish by Kay


Greystone Mansion Elopement Shoot / Beverly Hills, CA

Flowers / Martha Claire Floral


Lastly, we wanted to refresh your memory on everything that will be included in the workshop, what you’ll be taking home with you, and show off the beautiful space you’ll be working in!







And the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year Is…


As someone with a degree in Interior Design and now working in the flower industry, my inner design geek waves its flag every year as we await Pantone’s big reveal! I’m sure many of you can relate, and this year was no different.

Well, the wait is finally over, and I have to say, I’m pretty excited over the 2017 pick! Not only is my favorite color green, but it goes hand in hand with the garden style that is so popular in floral design right now, and in my humble opinion, here to stay. On top of all that, we use the words “foliage” and “greenery” interchangeably, so both the color and its name couldn’t be more fitting.

To find out all the beautiful types of greenery (see how perfect it is?!) Mayesh has to offer, including but not limited to the products below, be sure to reach out to your local branch or sales rep to get your hands on all the greens! And if you don’t already have a sales rep, you can get started here.


So, what do you guys think? Are you into next year’s Color of the Year or are you already awaiting 2018?



Save the Date: Mayesh Customer Appreciation Day


Have we told you how much we love you? Well, it’s true, and we’re going to be kicking off 2017 by showing you just how much! We wouldn’t be Mayesh without our wonderful & loyal customers, so we’re dedicating our 2017 Open House to you.

So mark your calendars & be sure to stop by your local branch on JANUARY 18TH, we can’t wait to celebrate our awesome customers!

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!

Throughout the rest of the night, guests enjoyed a beautiful charcuterie spread from local caterer White Pepper, sipped on drinks (poured by yours truly and my cousin/fellow marketing guru Jenn McJunkins), listened to live music by The Last Holdouts, and mingled with industry professionals and the Mayesh community. David Shwartz of BloomNation attended as well, opening himself up to talk to anyone interested in learning more about what BloomNation has to offer.
