Bouquets to Art 2012

I know this is a late post about Bouquets to Art because it already started for a week.  Tomorrow will be the last day to view all the beautiful floral art exhibition at deYoung Museum in San Francisco.  Actually I wasn't planning on writing this post because I don't feel comfortable tooting my own horns.  Also I've been so busy lately with wedding work and planning my kids summer schedule (yes, I am a full time working mom!). 

But I was with a couple of my vendor friends today, and Beverly from Especially Yours Chair Covers, one of my best friends in the industry, highly encouraged me to blog about it.  And later this evening when I went back to the museum to refresh my arrangement to get ready for tomorrow's Bouquets to Art "Finale", I heard a lot of compliments from viewers and many told me that this is one of their favorites.  All these kind words highly encouraged me.  So, here it is, below is my floral piece, an inspiraton of the Tea & Coffee Service by August Tiessenlinck.  Hope you all like it.  Enjoy a full platters of floral desserts!

2012 Wedding Faire & Symposium

Happy New Year to you all! I started my new year with a wonderful project being the featured designer for Preston Bailey's book signing at the 2012 Wedding Faire & Symposium at the Santa Clara Convention Center, which goes from 1/6-1/8.

Preston Bailey is an extremely successful celebrity event & wedding designer whose specialized in transforming spaces into spectular party scenes that's beyond imagination. He is one of my most admired American event designers. So you can imagine how excited I felt when I was asked to design an arrangement for his book signing. I chose to re-create one of his most famous signature art piece as my salute to the "flower god" of my heart - the floral peacock.

Below is my interpretation of the floral peacock. I had much fun making it, hope you all like it.
