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.

Preparing for Valentine’s Day 2015

January is quickly coming to a close, which means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!!  Crazy, right?!

Everyone here at Mayesh is preparing for the holiday and I had a few things I wanted to share with you!

I have a quick video to share with you.  While most importers are loading up their coolers with flowers for Valentine’s, Mayesh does not believe in storing flowers and is in fact cleaning the coolers in anticipation of the Valentine’s shipments that will start around February 4th.  You can see for yourself in this 30 second video clip:



Next, I thought I’d bring out some fun Valentine’s Day design inspiration.  If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the following videos to get your creative juices flowing!

FSFA Annual Convention

On June 7, 2013 the Florida State Florists’ Association’s Annual Convention will begin.  I’m particularly excited for this event because we were asked to sponsor our 2013 Mayesh Design Star, Jodi Duncan AIFD.  So we are sending her down to Tampa to present her program, “Armature Architecture”.

“Architecture, a Greek word meaning “chief” and “builder, carpenter” is both the process and product of planning, designing and construction. Today’s designer must be skilled in all areas, bringing beauty to the forefront in everyday shop merchandising as well as event construction. Explore armature based designs for bridal bouquets, big events & merchandising, and transform the landscape of your aesthetic as your profits build.”

Will you be attending the convention?  Not only will Jodi be there, but one of our representatives from our Miami branch will be at the trade fair.  Be sure to stop by our booth and say hi!  Here is more information about this event:
