Heartfelt 100th Enns Farm Celebration

August 13, 2019

When the 100th anniversary of Enns Farm was getting near, Richard Enns wanted to plan a monumental celebration that honored the years of his family’s legacy. With the hard work humbly labored on their farm, through cotton, alfalfa, garlic, corn, black-eyed peas, and, for the last 24 years, almonds, a party would be a perfect tribute.

Sadly, the year leading up to the event, Mr. Enns passed away. Nevertheless, his wife, Bonnie, and son, Jonathan carried his dream of a party that would commemorate the decades of farming and Mr. Enns life. When our team was asked to aid in the event plans and floral design,  it became our mission to pour our heart and soul into this gathering for the Enns family. By taking advantage of the endless array of antique farm equipment collected over the decades, we designed each display by hand. We also created wildflower arrangements in tin “vases” placed on bright, cobalt table linens and mason jar floral installations. 

Thank you to In Motion Pro for helping us share a few of our favorite moments from the day, and thank you to the Enns family for entrusting us with your event logistics and design!

Wine Country Almond House Dinner

July 9, 2019

Our hearts are still singing after our delicious staging of Sextant Estate Vineyard’s Almond House photo shoot! Their turn-of-the-century farmhouse overlooks over one hundred acres of the Paso Robles wine country, which is the only setting you need for a paired dinner under the stars.

The open-air backdrop, the playful style of the modernized estate and savory wine invigorated our design. Our team designed a relaxed yet polished garland featuring gorgeous vines and opulent white flowers that were placed on creamy linen. Mingled with a few tea lights and branches from a Paper Birch – it’s obvious why we are enamored over this shoot!

 This Flourishing Art team is pretty confident that you will be searching for your place setting as soon as you see these mesmerizing images by Mike Larson Photography!

Barn-Style Birthday Soiree  

July 2, 2019

There are birthday celebrations, and then there is Barbara’s birthday celebration! Her soiree was outfitted in rose gold, lace, and mercury glass details that ooze eloquence in a barn venue setting. Did we mention that she gifted each of her sweet guests a box of champagne gummy bears? Oh, yes! 

We were able to design the understated, graceful arrangements in the form of sherbet-colored ranunculus, blue sea holly, daring white rose, and silky Dusty Miller. Our entire team cannot tell you enough how much we adore textured colonial blue and lace linens at the dining table paired with the life-like bloom-filled linens that cascaded the seating outside of All Seated in a Barn. Could this be the ultimate #BirthdayGoals? We think so!  

Thank you to April & Co. Photography for sharing these ultra-fun photos with us!

Monochromatic Flower-Filled Bridal Shower

June 25, 2019

Call us biased, but we think we created the bridal shower of your dreams! Styled with all white floral arrangements in muted metallic vases – featuring tulips, hydrangeas, roses, and peonies – Nevi’s affair at the Bakersfield Country Club is unlike anything we’ve ever designed. A true labor of love, her flower wall was installed with paper petals of pale dijon, powder blues, greys and crisp white. We even placed a soft silver embellishment in the center of each bloom to act as the stigma, and bring our wall to life. April & Co Photography is the talent behind the lens that is helping us share Nevi’s flower-filled bridal shower with you today!

Cozy, Zin-ful Celebration at Sextant Winery

May 29, 2019

Each year, wine lovers alike come in droves to the Paso Robles wine country to indulge in the award-winning, heritage Zinfandel grape. While wine aficionados come to experience this heritage grape in its many forms, our friends at Sextant Winery wanted to ensure their guests were welcomed with a cozy atmosphere for the weekend’s kick-off party, which is precisely where the Flourishing Art team came in to help!

Drawing inspiration from the modern fireplace located in Sextant Winery’s tasting room, we filled the space with candles contained in mercy glass vessels. We wanted event attendees to feel as if they were in the vineyard while sipping some lovely zin variations, which is why we utilized earthy plants and blooms in the form of succulents, weeping string-of-beads vine, Kermit green button pom, and more. Finding ourselves so smitten with the marriage of this design, we placed the arrangements on bars, coffee tables, near the beloved fireplace and even in terrariums hanging on aged grape vines. Did we mention our infatuation with play-on a photo booth? Using floating bronze frames and books suspended from the ceiling, winery visitors could get their photographs taken using a variety of props!

A big thanks to Sextant Winery for trusting Flourishing Art to help elevate your venue, and to Mike Larson Photography for providing these images.
