The theme for this year’s AIFD Symposium was “Inspiration” and Jacob McCall’s program was nothing short of inspired. With roots in the wonderful world of Disney, Jacob pulled inspiration from some of our favorite Disney classics displayed in magical vignettes.
First up was his floral interpretation of “The Lion King.” Using mostly tropical product, he achieved a look that was both masculine and exotic.
His second vignette was dedicated to the most evil Disney queen, Maleficent. The dark containers encapsulated Maleficent’s black garb, and the use of over 150 stems of gloriosa lilies represented her famous flame.
The third installation was geared toward a more classic Disney theme, a princess. He told the story of Cinderella using a much lighter color palette, dainty flowers and cascading vines. Of course the floral story of Cinderella would not be complete without a few fairy tale pumpkins and a glass slipper, or in this case a blinged out pump.
Continuing with the princess theme he let it all go with his vision of Frozen. Using mostly all white everything including containers, countless stems of phaleonopsis orchids and of course a lil snowflake bling, he really brought us into Elsa’s icy world.
Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the sparkliest of them all? This wall of red roses is adorned by a black vanity set covered in laser cut glitter and completed with a basket of red sparkly apples that would entice any beauty to eat the poisonous treat.
