Bird Nest Baby Shower Arrangements!

The beauty of being in the floral industry is that you experience first hand the generosity and consideration of friends, spouses, and family members. This particular design was ordered by a mother-in-law for her daughter-in-law's baby shower. I received a copy of the invitation, pictured below, and was requested to created something special and unique, but not too babyish. We found this to be very considerate of her daughter-in-law's style! And, her daughter-in-law loved what she described as the "earthy" designs, and we loved the harmony of the floral and textural elements, which carried the bird's nest theme throughout the event! Congratulations to our mom-to-be!

Stardust Las Vegas at Dolce Hayes Mansion!

Fleur De Vie was excited to prepare old Vegas style flowers in keeping with the Stardust Casino theme for the San Jose Chamber of Commerce event at the Dolce Hayes Mansion. Mirrors, stars, blue carnations (yes! a first for us!), peacock feathers, and crystals. Fun, funky and outrageous! And, of course, we couldn't forget an homage to an idol, Marilyn Monroe. Here's our feather and red roses in honor of her!

Here are some wonderful images of my de Young exhibit piece taken by Pamela J. Please note the wings in my design mimicking the wings in the painting behind it and the bee flying towards the piece. What fun!
