Wedding at Jewel Ballroom

It has been a while since our last post and we are having a successful wedding season so far.  Here are some photos from the Jewel Ballroom. Location is great and a nice view looking at downtown.  We incorporated some natural elements using birch, twigs and rocks for their arrangements as the bride and groom as they love nature.  The highlight was the birch chuppah that was specially made by the groom.  We had such a fun time decorating the chuppah.  Enjoy!

Air Plants are back!

Our long lasting and beautiful Air plants are back! Come and take a look at our new collection of air plants, you will find different species and sizes to fit you taste.

Air plants are beautiful and decorative plants which are very easy to take care of; they require small amounts of water since they nourish from water and dust from the air and they like to be misted with a spray bottle. Below you will see a variety of species that we have in our shop.

Lido by Bosa Properties Grand Opening

Bosa properties are known for excellence, quality and practicality. As a previous owner ourselves in a Bosa building, we would recommend anybody who is in the market for a nice property to take a look at Bosa’s projects. Today is the grand opening for Bosa’s Lido residential tower in the False Creek. Located at a very centralized location, it’s got great view and convenience. Interior design was nicely done by our favorite designers, BYU Design. It’s clean, modern and it was great to incorporate our florals and artificial arrangements into Lido’s grand opening day.

Below are some photos taken from our setup. We highly encourage you to go by and take a look. Great quality, tastefully designed and a good location!

FloraHolland Auction

We had an opportunity to visit the world’s largest flower auction in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands called FloraHolland .

FloraHolland is a flower auction company located in Aalsmeer, Naaldwijk, Rijnsburg, Venlo, Bleiswijk and Eelde. Together, the auction houses are home to the largest flower auction in the world. More than 20 million flowers and plants are sold at FloraHolland every day and auction is on Monday to Friday.

Auction started at 6am, but we were allowed to visit at 7am and you can see all the buyers were very busy with the fast moving auction clocks.

As a florist, it was a great experience to see all the amazing selection of flowers and plants that are available. The freshness and variety of flowers are just unbelievable. It is hard to describe how large the auction warehouse was and photos below show how lively and timely the flower were sold and organized to be picked up either locally or to be flown off at the Schiphol Airport right next to the warehouse!  Just Amazing!

I would like to share some photos of the auction. Enjoy!

Happy New Year!

2011 has been a fun-filled year personally…

I promised myself I will be doing more traveling as possible in the new year.

Starting at the beginning of year 2011 with an exciting trip to Tokyo Japan, few small trips to Portland , Seattle, wine trip to Kelowna during Spring time.

At the end of the year, we did a three week long trip to Paris, Amsterdam, Singapore and Seoul. It was an inspiring and meaningful trip. It was just an awesome trip. Below is a preview of some pics from our trip. We will do an in depth blog in a later posting… stay tuned.

I wish everyone a happy new year. On behalf of all staff from Balconi Floral Design Studio, we wish you an amazing 2012. We also would like to thank all our customers, family and friends who gave support and love to Balconi.  We look forward to seeing you all soon!
