Good morning! Is anyone else NOT glad it's Monday? I am actually excited about this week, though, because Els Teunnisen (don't know who she is? Check out her bio on our website here) is here in our showroom creating some FANTASTIC designs that you will get to see really soon. For now, here's a quick look at Els in action for you (stay tuned for more pictures on the blog tomorrow!)
This week's Tips and Tricks episode is called "Thomas and Twiggy." In this episode, Hitomi creates a brilliantly unique design using the Thomas Vase and the Twiggy Pot, combined with some beautiful flowers and Midollino sticks. Her stunning creation is a simply elegant and modern play on contrast of colors and forms -- watch the video here or on our YouTube channel to see for yourself!
*Our Design Days is quickly approaching, and we would love to see lots of y'all there - you won't want to miss it! Remember that November 1&2 are free, but be sure to call and let us know if you're coming (1-800-385-5114) Don't miss this opportunity to see the 3 designers, and meet them one on one. They will be available to answer questions each morning. We will also have our industry partners showing their gorgeous fresh flowers. And most of all, the showroom will be spectacular - full of all our newest items, booths set up for you to meet our partners, and more!
*And don't forget that Hitomi and Kevin are doing the Festoon workshop 2 days prior to the open house. For $595.00 you get 2 days of workshops with high end designers, limited class size and free food. Be sure to register here soon!
