Preparing for a busy week

A nautical themed baby shower has me busy in the studio gluing shells to sticks for 17 centerpieces. A sketch idea is below. Smelling the salt water on the shells makes me feel anxious to experience those long summer nights by the shore….


Hi Valentine’s Day is Coming

This is the time of year when everybody wants something big and beautiful. I made this wreath for a client’s front entrance and believe it or not she lives alone and is in her 80’s. She told me seeing a seasonal wreath in her hallway makes her feel happy when she comes home. That same day, I made the big white arrangement for Hollywood ledgends Fay and Frank Mancusos’ 60th wedding anniversary. Roses, hydrangeas, orchid and diamonds of course-

Breakfast with the BeatlesĀ 

We headed to Duke’s Malibu for their special radio broadcast of Breakfast with the Beatles last Sunday. That is my Brother Scott holding his son and wife and daughter. We had a blast! Can’t wait to go again!!


Having a Ball

The annual Stone Canyon Christmas urn project! When I came down the escalator from the garage I saw the massive stack of imported winterberries and snowy branches. I love red and I just knew I had to use these somewhere. Then I saw the dogs and remembered the client had a few black labs…My juices were flowing and things were coming together marvelously! Here are the behind the scenes photos of this project. It makes me happy looking back on this job.


Christmas is Coming

When I stepped inside the walk-in cooler downtown Los Angeles, I was confronted by large mounds of wintergreens. All these wreaths are made onsite at the Flower Market. The fragrance was intoxicating! I bought a large tower of them for an upcoming Holiday Boutique at Calvary in the Palisades, December 2 from 8am-3pm. Come shopping!
