Yesterday’s rain left the sky so blue and the trees ablaze with autumn colors gleaming in the sunlight. I spent the morning in my backyard making bouquets with maple leaves and hydrangeas. I love the color gradation autumn brings. I could not love this time of the year more!
Hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas with family and friends and your dear loved ones!
Well now that the turkey is cooking in the oven I have time to update my blog!
This is the first time making a kissing ball. I used feijoa leaves instead of mistletoe as they are a bit pricy but I think it came out pretty nicely.
The wreath was sent out for delivery yesterday, just in time for Christmas. I made the same base as the wreath lesson a few days ago, cypress, cedar and blue ice, and added a bit more florals and ornaments.
Happy Thanksgiving! Hope your day was filled with lots and lots of love, fun, turkey and tasty cocktails! This year has been very fulfilling with the start of my new business, Lutèce Floral and Event Design! I would not be able to do any of what I do if it wasn’t for each and every one of you so THANK YOU! And of course, I am greatly thankful for my beloved friends and family who are always giving me much love and courage.
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!
テーマカラーはRed x Black。なので、お花の色も統一し、ひまわりやケイトウなどの旬の花材で彩ってみました。昼間だとポップに見えたこのブーケですが、お届け先のお家は白x黒ベースのモダンな高層マンションで、お宅の夜のムーディなライティングとあいまって、この子たちもなんだかセクシーにみえました。同じお花でも、見る場所、時間によってとても雰囲気が変るものですよね。黒の花器に入れても、赤＆イエローと黒のコントラストがとてもクールになりで素敵です！
I love making sun-kissed colored arrangements in the summer time! I think it’s a perfect complement to the season. These were made as a birthday flower, from wife to husband for his surprise birthday party. Combine these with a black vase and you’ve got a sexy summer bouquet!
I am so anxious to share the images of yesterday’s baby shower! It was truly a heart-warming affair for the baby boy’s mom-to-be! I think the florals and the décor worked their magic and I could not be happier with how it turned out! You will be seeing it soon here once I go through the 1000+ photos!
