SKYY Premiere at the BOB

From weddings to vodka premieres...who knew! Just one day after the incredible Payne wedding we were hired to transform the Crush into an exotic floral explosion for the new SKYY fusion vodka event. We had such a great time interpreting their new premiere flavors of raspberry, grape, cherry, citrus and passion fruit through cutting edge floral designs. Fresh floral materials were shipped in from all over the world including several varieties of heliconia, protea, orchids, and amazing hanging amaranthus in deep rich raspberry, yellow and green. Each design represented the different flavors and we incorporated loads of wonderful fresh fruit and bottles of vodka. Although exhausted from the wedding we found motivation in sneaking bites from all the fantastic fruit, pizza, donuts, cookies provided by Tony the promotional manager at the BOB. He is a master at motivating people! :)

Hope you enjoy this post as much as we enjoyed designing this event.

what a FANTASTIC event... EVERY detail in EVERY design was so lush and exotic!!! You can really see how perfectly thought out the florals were!

Very cool. What did you use to create the golden element in the 4th picture? Was the design suspended or is there a vase in there somewhere?

The 4th image is actually an amazing work of art that I purchased from a young talented floral designer who presented at Symposium in California in 2007. If you can believe it started from a small basket about the size of a dinner plate, she then attached cooper tubing, twine and funky yarn which was all woven by hand. We affectionately refer to her as our butterfly or lily pad. The mechanics we used to hold the florals in place was a large oasis cage attached through the basket with bind wire.
