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!

Epic Expo, oneplanet Catering


I hope some of you had the opportunity to visit the Epic Expo in the new Vancouver Convention Center over the weekend. The show focuses on green and sustainable living. I was able to stroll through the show and sampled a variety of different eco friendly goods,  wines and beers.

One of our dear clients, one planet Catering, featured their products at the show and we were able to provide some floral to help decorate their booth. They have a great vision for “green” catering and their lunch box(reusable) is great for help saving environment.¬† Check them out… http://www.oneplanetcatering.com

I have included a few pictures of the booth with some floral :)

Happy Holidays!


We had a great opportunity to decorate a beautiful home in West Vancouver for the holiday season just last week.  Our client wanted us to provide decorations that they need for a  welcoming Christmas holiday.  We had such a pleasure to working with this warm and kind client.  We were glad to hear that they are very happy with the outcome of this project.
