MAYESH DESIGN STAR: CEREMONY ARCH
Featuring Japanese flowers from Naniwa, Kaylee designs a beautiful floral arch. The structure is created using a lovely arch from Danner & Soli, which she attached foam cages using zip ties before placing the flowers into place. Archways are perfect for setting the tone of a truly romantic wedding ceremony and this design surely accomplishes that in spades!

We covered some great topics during March's Mornings with Mayesh show. Yvonne and Dave spoke about some of the amazing products that are available now and answered your flower questions. The discussion included: reviewing some regular roses that are similar to garden roses, ideas for good corsage/boutonniere flowers, thoughts on hardgood investments for budding businesses, sources for large containers, how to attract luxury brides, ads in Instagram Stories, and Youtube updates. For the second half of the show, Jodi Duncan, of Jodi Duncan Designs and Socialjodi, joined Yvonne to chat about her thoughts on social media with a focus on how to get started, content ideas, and what social platforms you need to make sure you are utilizing. Enjoy!
Mark your calendars for April 10 and join us for our next show with special guest, Alison Ellis of Real Flower business! And be sure to start sending in your flower questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
