From Music to Floral Magic to Event Designer for Stars
He started his working life as a high school band and choral director. Now he’s one of America’s foremost floral designers, creating floral magic for luxury events all over the world, and designs for the stars.

To what does David Beahm attribute his success?



Creating enchantment through visual movement. Avoiding the straight and standard. Choosing words carefully to describe the structures he creates. Believing every florist should emphasize safety first. Sparing nothing to keep flowers fresh—but using faux flowers where it makes sense.

And, most important, he follows the golden rule.

David shares with us his values, design thinking and tips he follows designing for events around the world—along with 13 photos of his installations plus his favorite flower for large structures.
