When Anne submitted photos from G. Fiori, this one caught my eye for the main reason that the oranges were on the outside of the vase and the arrangement was very structural and each piece fit exactly where it should. She explains where the inspiration came from--
-- Per Anne, "The event was a celebrity charity event that featured an art auction with an emphasis on California artists. They asked us to come up with a 'California' theme for the floral decor. G Fiori Floral Designer extraordinaire, Guillermo Del Pero created this buffet piece for the event. All proceeds from the auction were for Aids Project Los Angeles."

How cool is this floral frame by FlorUnique? Head florist Winnie let me in on how she created this and what her inspiration was - lets find out!
Per Winnie, "The design was created for the Torrance Art Museum which is known for their emphasis on modern and contemporary art. My thinking was to create an modern artwork of flowers, framed in a box, but with some protruding elements so that the design would not be constricted. I therefor extended the Helikonia beyond the frame and swooped the ribbon woven bear grass down, outside the box, to connect with the two loose green Cymbidium orchids."
I also love the super cool boutonniere above. It's like a mini piece of wearable art.

Flour LA had the privilege of working with event trio superstars Sugar and Fluff for their Tartan themed party Pop-Up Shop. They are big fans of organic and very dramatic looking flower arrangements. I think Sine Maria, lead designer and events manager, did a great job of creating their vision and bringing it to life.

I love anything hanging, and this creative canopy bring about the unexpected. From Rachael Rollins of Rachael Kasie Designs in Daytona Beach, "We created this beautiful chandelier/canopy to hang over head on the dance floor. Our clients ultimate goal for her wedding was to create a design theme that was "tropical glam" using a very un-ordinary color palette. The structure was weaved together with rivercane and raffia and then adorned with Queen Pink dendrobium orchid stems as well as individually strung blooms."
This is a flower chandelier designed for a modern Hot Pink and Lime Green Christmas wedding. The pomander balls hanging in the center were to mimic ornaments. Flowers used are: Hot pink amaryllis, lime green hydrangea, green fuji mums, hot pink hydrangea and hot pink carnations.
Below are bouquets I adore.
Left: This particular bouquet was designed specifically for a client who wanted the essence of a Sunset mimicked throughout her bouquet but still achieving a somewhat tropical and very textured look. Flowers used: Yellow Craspedia balls, orange tulips, orange coxcomb celosia, orange Babe spray roses, red/orange upright celosia, orange crocosmia and yellow cymbidium orchids with red throats.Right: This gorgeous bouquet was brought together on several ideas and/or requirements per the client. The entire wedding was based on the color purple seen in this Phaleanopsis orchid, so it was imperative to match it correctly. Secondly, the importance was to bring in a lot of texture and to be unique in the overall creation of the bouquet. Lastly, the Bride loved Lily of the Valley but did not have the budget to pay for it so we used the tips of white hybrid delphinium instead to achieve the look of it and it came together just beautifully. Flowers used: White peonies, green coxcomb celosia, purple phaleanopsis orchids, white hybrid delphinium and white lilacs.
I feel especially fond of this shoot because last April, I did a photoshoot at the Hicksville Trailer Park with an all-star team (the shoot will be featured in this winter's Modele Magazine issue) and stayed in the Integratron airstream. This shoot, done by Tend based in San Diego captures the essence of "odd", "different", "creature-like". Lets find out what their inspiration was:
"Astronomical Twilight" was an editorial shoot we did at the Integratron. Our inspiration was the "acoustically perfect tabernacle and energy machine sited on a powerful geomagnetic vortex in the magical Mojave Desert" aka infamous site of alien contact, with our couple playing the role of cosmic lovers untethered by illusions of time and mortality.
Colors were white, tangerine, and bronze and the floral palette included such flowers as pin cushion protea, scabiosa, dianthus green trick, lotus pod, kangaroo paw, ranunculus, and succulents. Photos by Tangerine Tree Photography.
