Design direction……

Shades of Patina Copper and darkened Bronze juxtaposition with earthy Terra Cotta and pitted Limestone soothed by the cooling aqueous blues and greens of the sea, ending in crystalline sea salts…..

Possible ‘floral and d├ęcor’…..wildflowers indigenous to the Qumran -lupin, iris, hollyhock, anemone, Macedonian scabious, star of Bethlehem, plum stock, pale silvery purple thistle and clove, Barley, grapevines, wheat, grasses in a blending of a Mediterranean leaf collection
Pottery, woven baskets, oil la
mps, wooden plates, woven cordage & leather

We were honored to be chosen to participate in the gala opening for the exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls now on display at the San Diego Natural History Museum. The scrolls are widely acknowledged to be among the greatest archaeological treasures ever discovered. We spent hours pouring over research material to design the floral & decor displays that would be authentic to the flavor of the exhibit.
The evening began outside the front doors onto the park lawn where guests were greeted by Bedouin travelers on camels in a market bazaar setting.The initial launch was rooftop with a VVIP host hour set with henna stations, belly dancing, champagne and food catered by the best caters of San Diego.
All levels of the museum were peppered with food & drink stations as the guests awaited the viewing. We had a wonderful time and thank Diane Kern - Exclusive Designs & Events and Sharlene Thompson- special events director of SDNHM and her staff for a spectacular evening!

I Just happened to be looking at The Dana on this particular day. What these guys did out on the lawn for the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Fortunately I had not yet chosen my florist for our May wedding and we will for sure be using embellishmint for our flowers,
Thank you
