{ Feature Friday } Sergio!

Welcome back to another edition of Feature Friday! One-by-one, we’re introducing you to all of the members of Team Fleuriste and today is all about Sergio. He is a vital part of our floral crew, our in-house photographer and our comic relief. Don’t let his quietness fool you – this lady’s man makes the girls say, “Screw the band – I’m with Sergio!” Sergio, Sergie or Serge – different names, same awesome dude. Here he is, in his own words:

Sergio

Who is your favorite superhero? Dr. Manhattan from the Watchmen graphic novel. I can’t really say he was a good guy or a bad guy, he just kinda left earth to create a universe of  his own. It felt like a “deuces, you guys suck. I’m going to go make some people of my own far away from you guys.” He brought peace to Earth though, even if it was through a huge lie.

What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t working? I enjoy listening to music, drawing and wondering what Whoopi Goldberg is doing RIGHT NOW! I also like drinking coffee and making music.

What is your favorite part of your job? My favorite part about working at The Fleuriste is definitely processing flowers. We just have all kinds of flowers coming in all of the time and its nice to see something new every week and learning about it. The Fleuriste gets flowers from all over the world all the time, literally all over the world.

If you could win the gold medal in any sport at the Olympics, which would it be? Synchronized swimming definitely, or maybe ice skating. Really anything with a cool outfit…I wouldn’t be good at it, I’d just be wearing a cool outfit.

What is your favorite restaurant in OKC? I don’t really have a favorite restaurant in OKC, I just like trying new things. So if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

If you won a Grammy, which type of music would it be for? I would win a grammy for best hip hop artist. Don’t let these kind eyes fool you, under this boyish charm I am a straight stunna.

What is your favorite flower? I love Peonies, they’re my favorite for sure. It takes them a while to open up but once they do, they’re beautiful.

Ready to Rock at Design Appetit

EventuresRockRevolution
Next week, OKC is going to have one of the most unique, inventive and tastiest events it’s ever seen. Team Fleuriste is excited to announce that we’ll be participating in Design Appetit!

Design Appetit is a design competition where architecture + interiors + art + food collide for a unique experience.  The event will be held at the Cox Convention Center Exhibit Halls Thursday, March 31 through Saturday, April 2.  The competition benefits Focus on Home, an organization whose mission is to serve families in need by providing the means for a dignified home by creating a clearer path towards a stronger future.

The Fleuriste will be partnering with EventuresToucan Productions and other industry leaders to design a space that will deliver a high end, one-of-a-kind, rock and roll experience for dining guests and public viewing alike. With featured greats like Elton John, Gene Simmons and more, the Rock Revolution theme will be abundant.  From the furnishings to the floral, and from the lights to the sounds, it will be music to the ears for those who take it all in.

In addition, Kelsey Majors will give her take on the theme with a timeless and modern menu selection sure to delight any rock and roll fan’s appetite! Kelsey is a native Oklahoman who grew up with an early love for food and cooking. She started her culinary career in 2003 at Sea Island Golf Resorts in St. Simon’s Island, Georgia. She moved back home in 2008 and began working as a Sous Chef at Belmar Golf and Country Club. In 2011 she became the private chef for a local celebrity and in 2014, offered the position of Executive Chef at Belmar. We are excited to partner with Kelsey and see what she creates for this exciting event!

What is your morning routine?

I wake up with the sun, get showered and dressed and greet the day with a celebratory (and all too necessary) cup of coffee. Then I head to work!

What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t working?

My favorite thing to do is work on one of my many ongoing art projects between long naps.

What is your favorite part of your job?

Processing flowers!  I love getting to learn about all the different varieties we get.  Our shop is fortunate to receive the best flowers, many of which are very unique and exotic.

Which three famous people, living or dead, would you want to have dinner with?

Solange Knowles, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Nina Simone

What is your favorite restaurant in OKC?

If you won an Oscar, who are the first three people you would thank in your speech?

My mom, my lovely partner Nick, and myself because darn it I deserve this.

What is your favorite flower?

Orchids are by far my favorite flower. I love all the different varieties they come in. Each one is specially adapted to their environment  and are uniquely beautiful.

Happy birthday Alaina!
