Phoenix NACE hosted their 3rd Annual Elements tabletop decor competition a few weeks ago and we were honored to be a part of it. One of the greatest parts is enjoying the time you spend joking around with old friends, getting to know new friends, and just being a part of an eclectic, creative environment.
I was truly honored when Lorraine from Brady's Floral asked me to design her stationery elements for their "Toyko" table. At first, it was quite humorous because we were competing in the same category and I joked with her that I was going to design her pieces by scribbling on notebook paper with crayons! Then she couldn't win :) However, their work is way too amazing to do something like that, so I had to create a piece to compliment it. I wish I had a full picture of her entire booth - it was AMAZING!! Dripping orchids, rich golds and orange linens, and a centerpiece that screamed creative!! Their work is impeccable!
... and the best part .... a few days after the show I received an email with these amazing photos taken by Ben Quillinan of BQ Photography. Even though he said he wasn't feeling well that day, he still showed up as promised and ROCKED out some amazing photos!! His work inspires me!! Just wait and see our table pictures! Thank you BQ - you know I'm one of your biggest fans!!
