{ Team Fleuriste Spotlight } Taylor

 

Taylor came to work for us after Jake won her over in a local cable access version of The Bachelorette. We’re still wondering…..

When she’s not off learning nurse-ish type things, she is here helping to keep the show running on the floral side. Taylor does a lot of our processing when we receive flowers and is trying her hand in designing. She has quickly become a valuable part of the team and if we can convince her to leave nursing to work here forever, we’d all be very happy. We recently had an impromptu conversation in which she was unaware I was recording, the following is what is appropriate to share:

Taylor what is your favorite flower to work with?
T: I love peonies and garden roses. I love how peonies add something to every arrangement, and I had never seen garden roses before and I fell in love with them!

What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work and when you’re avoiding Jake?
T: I like reading and running and yoga { Note to self: don’t attempt these three activities at the same time. It doesn’t work }

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
T: Neon Trees! I saw them at the Brady in Tulsa. They’re not my favorite band, but they put on an amazing show!

Rise to the Occasion

We dare you to find something wrong with Kurt Fleischfresser’s innovative and breathtaking 50th floor event space at Vast – V2. Fleischfresser, the new Director and Executive Chef for the space, brought in a team of experts to completely revive and redefine the feeling, design and cuisine (as you can see below)! The Fleuriste participated in the decor of 4 rooms, 4 different concepts, and 1 great collaborative effort to show it all off!

The Infinity Room – Perfectly decorated by Judy Lehmbeck Bridal & Party to highlight this elegant reception space, the flowers were selected to enhance the colors of the linens and extravagant cake (which included just the right amount of bling).

The Skylight Room – With clean lines and a hint of masculinity, Leslie Herring Events went with the “less is more” approach when painting this canvas.

Sports Lounge – Succulents and birch logs accented the new hot spot for all your sporting action. Thunder game from 50-stories up? Yes please!

Chefs Private Dining Room – By far the “pièce de résistance” of V2, Chef Fleischfresser’s heart and soul lie in this room where he will create his most delectable epicurean delights for the most discriminating of clients. We were so inspired we went wild with an edible floral centerpiece filled with hydrangeas, herbs and orchids. New menu item perhaps?

{ After the Holidays, Holiday Party }

IMG_0496

2013 was an exciting year at The Fleuriste!   We finally got through the holidays and realized a social gathering was in order … one where we could unwind and celebrate a great year!  { One where we might just get Elfed Up }

With stunning views of the Myriad Botanical Garden and Downtown Oklahoma City, Team Fleuriste and friends enjoyed hors d‘oeuvres and libations at the beautiful Historic Landmark Colcord Hotel!  The Colcord’s Sullivan Room was the perfect venue and definitely “the place to be” that night!  Bring The Party Productions provided the perfect dance jams and The SNL Booth captured all the fun we were clearly having with their fabulous props and photo booth.

The Fleuriste as a full service Florist

When you send or display flowers designed by The Fleuriste, you not only convey a personal message but you make a statement! We are not your conventional florist, and yet we do almost everything you would rely on from your traditional florist. Here are a few points that set us apart from the rest:

  • No matter the occasion we will create it and make you stand out
  • We purchase our flowers from growers and importers direct- better prices and fresher product
  • Our products are priced smartly so they move out the door quickly- freshness and frugality in mind
  • Anything but the Kitchen sink is not what we are about- the flowers on hand are “in season” and the greatest varieties available
  • We always thrive to “WOW” in everything we do
  • A lifetime of devotion to the floral industry is our record of past- the business idea for The Fleuriste is the culmination of skills, artistry and experience combined
  • Our guarantee- once you try us you will “get it”!

 

Come on in and let us show you around.
