I had the pleasure of taking Ms. Jun Hamamura’s floral lesson last week. A floral decorator and floral coordinator/agent based out of Paris, Ms. Hamamura serves as the liaison between Japan and France in the floral industry. Her lesson, which captured every essence and spirit of the Parisian floral style, was nothing but inspirational! The colors and the mood of the florals and the foliage was oh-so-Paris that my mind was went wandering somewhere on La Rive Gauche as I worked on the pieces with overflowing spark. Those two days were blissfully priceless…
ちょっと前後してしまいましたが、１０月４日に恵比寿のウエスティンホテルで行われた乳がん撲滅ファンドレイジングイベント、Run for the Cure Foundation主催 “Casino Night”の会場装花と装飾を担当させて頂きました。４００人近いゲストの会場を作り上げるのは想像以上の大変さ。そのかわり、全て完成し、仕上げにキャンドルを灯した瞬間は、言葉にならないほどの感動がありました。ゲストや主催の方々からもお褒めの言葉をたくさん頂戴し、嬉しい限りです。
一つのイベントを作り上げるために、それぞれのチームが全ての力を出し合い、結集して成功を目指していく。とても刺激的な現場です。代表取締役のVicikie Paradise Green様をはじめ、Run For the Cure のみなさまには、この機会を与えて頂き心から感謝しています！
It was such an honor to have the opportunity to oversee the florals and décor for a fundraising event which took place at the Westin Tokyoin Ebisu. The event, “Casino Night,” was hosted by “Run for the Cure (RFTC),” a foundation committed to eradicating breast cancer. With almost 400 guests, the preparation process was quite intense but I had so much fun working with Kiei from RFTC – you are the best!, my floral buddy -”Bon Point,” all of the volunteers and last but not least, GreenWings Japanfor your unbelievably generous donation. The venue could not have looked so beautiful if it was not for all of your 1500 stems of florals!
It was a dream come true to be able to work for such an meaningful and grand-scale event and I would like to express my gratitude to Run For the Cure for giving me this amazing opportunity and everyone who helped in making it happen. THANK YOU and MUCH LOVE!!!
The flowers, generously provided by Greenwings Japan have arrived today from Holland and Colombia! We could not have done it without the 1500 flowers provided by you!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! All glamorously in red to go with the “Casino Night” theme. A sneak peak of some of the flowers. Stay connected to see how these and +1000 flowers will transform on the night of the event!
