The other love of my life....

I took time off this week- and besides spending it with a friend who is about to go off to Scotland for 3 years for a PhD- have just been puttering around the house organizing. Most importantly, been going thru old digital files of work- and found pictures of my other hobby- floral and event design. When I was going thru Art Center, I was fortunate enough to work for a catering company. I found that I love putting together an environment for special occasions. So the next photographs are of a friend's 40th birthday party in Palm Desert. He was gracious enough to allow me to make all the floral arrangements (orchids & succulents) as well as the main table center piece. Don's main requirement was that the decor add to the place, not overpower it. It was a tough request, since the place was a rental and the first time I saw the venue was the morning of the party when me and my friend showed up to decorate. We were very ecstatic that we picked a theme that would complement the simple design of the home- clean and elegant. Since the party started when it was still light- the decor had to transition as well- thus the submersible waterproof flora lites at the base of all the cylinder vases. They are amazing. They last for up to 48 hours and only take two watch batteries. I am BUMMED because the low light photography did not come out well (guess who took the pictures!)  the place was truly magical that night. Don and Frankie- Thank you!!!!! I miss you guys!
