Mayesh Design Star Santa Barbara Workshop Recap

 

In August, our Mayesh Design Star tour brought us to sunny Santa Barbara, and Narrative Loft was the perfect eclectic venue for this workshop.

 

 


 

 

DAY ONE

 

Following the format of the previous workshops, day one consisted of networking, mood boarding and of course, delicious appetizers and wine. To kick off the night, Ryan O’Neill of Curate and Brad Beck of Design Master presented to the students about their respective products. Following, our 2018 Mayesh Design Star, Kaylee of Flourish by Kay, led the students in a brand identifying and mood boarding activity. Students were tasked with creating mood boards that represented themselves and their brands, then everyone went around the room and wrote down one word that represented each mood board. With these words, students were able to narrow the list down to five to articulate their personal brand and design style.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

DAY TWO

 

After networking and mood boarding the previous evening, the next morning Kaylee, Jamie and the students jumped right into designing. Kaylee began by showing how to create the skeleton of a floating installation and how to fill in with florals. Then as a class, they completed the hanging installation as well as a floral trellis.

 

After the group installation, Kaylee demonstrated how she creates her centerpieces while walking the students through her process. The students then designed their own centerpieces in beautiful Accent Decor vessels.

Mayesh Design Star Seattle Workshop Recap

 

We just wrapped up our 2018 Mayesh Design Star Tour last month, so we wanted to take a look back at the year and all the great workshops we were able to host! This year’s tour and workshop centered around the theme of “Curate & Create,” and Kaylee of Flourish by Kay and her assistant Jamie Heusser led students in identifying their brand and creating beautiful floral designs.

 

Our Seattle workshop in July was held at Metropolist, a modern and industrial space in Seattle’s SODO district. The venue was spacious and open and provided the perfect amount of natural light for our summer workshop.

 


 

DAY ONE

 

To kick off the workshop, Monday began with a networking event. Students enjoyed wine and appetizers while getting to know each other and listening to presentations from our very own Dave Tagge about all the great products the students would be working with. Kaylee then led the students in a mood boarding activity in which she discussed the importance of identifying one’s individual brand and using that to guide their floral designs.

 

 

 


 

DAY TWO

 

To kick off day two, the students revisited their mood boards in order to have a clear vision as they dove into a day of designing, followed by a centerpiece demonstration and then finally getting their hands on all of the beautiful product to make their own, using compotes provided by Accent Decor.

 

After lunch catered by The London Plane, Kaylee and her assistant Jamie worked with the students on two different installations: a ceremony setup with petite aisle pieces and a floral trellis, and a wildflower field. Assistant extraordinaire Jamie then doubled as our model for the day, posing among the wildflower “field” the students created… we’re obsessed with how those photos turned out! The student’s work was also photographed by Nicole Clarey on a minimal yet beautifully styled table by Kaylee using pieces from Classic Vintage Rentals in Portland, OR.

 

To wrap up the workshop, Kaylee answered floral business questions and as a special treat, her husband Landon shared his passion for brand storytelling and how he has challenged Kaylee to hone in on her brand using this storytelling strategy.

Mayesh Design Star Charleston Workshop Recap

 

The year is flying by, and although we have only one workshop left in our 2018 Mayesh Design Star workshop series, we still have our past three workshops to recap!

 

First up: CHARLESTON

 

Our May Charleston workshop was just featured on Botanical Brouhaha, but there are so many more beautiful photos we just had to share.

The workshop was held at The Cedar Room, a dreamy venue located in Charleston’s historic Cigar Factory. With white washed brick walls, tall windows and as much natural light as you could possibly hope for, this venue was more than perfect for our spring inspired workshop.

 


 

DAY ONE

 

As with our Miami workshop, we started the workshop Monday evening with a networking event. The students enjoyed appetizers and wine while meeting one another and watching presentations from Ryan O’Neil of Curate & Jodi Duncan for Design Master. Following their educational presentations, Kaylee discussed the important role mood boards play in her design process, and had each student create their own as a way to help define their style. Everyone – the Mayesh team included! – then went around and wrote a descriptive word next to each mood board, leaving each student with a long list of words to help articulate their style in five words. This exercise was a great way to get the students thinking about their unique styles and coming into day two with more intention.

 

 

 


 

DAY TWO

 

Day two was all about design. Kaylee and her assistant Jamie led the students in a group installation activity. When the students arrived, the ceremony was set up with a simple, bare arch and two large urn arrangements to show one option for a ceremony set up. Then, as a class they created the second ceremony option: a lush floral arch and aisleway installation using spirea, garden roses and peonies.

Following the installation, Kaylee demonstrated how she creates her signature bridal bouquets. The students then designed their own bouquets, finished off with gorgeous silk ribbon from Adorn Company and photographed with local model Hilary Rose.

Mayesh Design Star Miami Workshop Recap

 

As we gear up for our third workshop of the year in Seattle, we’re taking a look back on our first workshop this past January in Miami! Now that it has officially been published on Botanical Brouhaha, we’re excited to share some more of the beautiful photos and video to give you a look into what our Curate & Create Workshop Tour with Kaylee Young really looks like.

Our Miami workshop was held at 255 Studio, a photography studio in the vibrant Wynwood Arts District that provided the perfect blank canvas for Kaylee to work with.

DAY ONE

 

The workshop kicked off with an evening networking event. Two of our product sponsors (Hosa & Alexandra Farms) stopped by to talk about their products while the students ate delicious appetizers from Food Guy Catering. Then Kaylee led the class in a mood boarding activity in an effort to help the students define their own, unique design styles and come into the next day with intention.

 

 


 

DAY TWO

 

The second day of the workshop focused on design. Kaylee walked the students through her entire process from order curation to design. The students were then given the opportunity to create their own centerpieces using the most amazing product from our sponsors.

The last piece of the workshop was a group installation, led by Kaylee and her design assistant, Jamie Heusser. Together they created a chuppah and aisleway installation with a variety of foliages and garden roses.

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.
