Imagine stepping into the lobby of the San Francisco Marriott Marquis and seeing three of these spectacular murals at the registration desk.
I knew right away that this was going to be a great week. I chose to check in at the middle desk and confirmed that these are real anthurium flowers and monstera leaves.
No big surprise. After all, I was about to attend "Imagine", the 2011 Symposium for the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD). Wil Gonzalez, the AIFD Northwestern Region President, and Kren Rasmussen, AIFD of Bloomsters in San Jose collaborated on the lobby design for the event. All the flowers and foliage were provided by Greenpoint Nurseries. Stay tuned, this is only the tip of the iceberg, I will show you lots more in the coming weeks.
I have been super-duper busy all summer long and I'm desperately behind in responding to all your wonderful comments. I hope to catch up slowly, but I couldn't contain myself any longer, I just had to share a tiny bit of my wonderful week in San Francisco.
