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!

Denise...Your work was magical!! What a great weekend that was. I will never forget what you did and how special that house looked. You never cease to amaze me. I love your blog too... nice to know that with the help of some OCD friends and a Rhoomba that you are getting settled. LOL. Would love to see you next time I'm in the bay area. XO

Hello there, There's no doubt that your website might be having internet
browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.

I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
Besides that, wonderful site!
