Sweet Success!

The Open House was an absolutely stunning affair! The red carpets rolled out, and good friends Trouve and Chestnut Lane threw open their doors to help make the night unforgettable!

The girls unveiled a few secrets that had been kept hidden for far too long...

The artistic talents of owner Teresa Wilson were on full display, much to the satisfaction of our faithful clientele! As most of you know, it is NO secret that floral design has been this girl's long-time love affair... but what many of you were suprised to discover is Teresa's talent with the charcoal medium. Her sketches were proudly displayed on the flowershop walls, and good friends and loyal customers were able to see a whole new side to the unpredictable artist!

The Secret's Out...
While the sketches and floral design work were poured over by our adoring fans, the flowershop girls unleashed their ultimate secret. The shop walls were adorned with awe-inspiring photographs by resident photographer Milena Sefferovich.  Milena's phenomenal reputation and unparalled eye were too much for the girls at Camelback Flowershop to ignore.  We united forces and the team is absolutely UNSTOPPABLE!
Please be sure to check out Milena's gift for capturing a moment at www.milenaphotography.com!

Oh What a Night!

The fashion show was a tremendous success! The models, clothing, shoes, and accessories were beautiful--not to mention the Maserati and our floral work. It was a wonderful event and a great way to reinforce our partnership with roberto botticelli.

The ladies at the shop worked overtime to design the two enormous Manzanita trees with beautiful hydrangea and roses. But the extra work was well worth it, since the trees looked fantastic and truly added ambiance to the evening.

The best part about the night was that 10% of the profits went to the Phoenix Art Museum. Thus, the fashion show was not only a fun and chic event, but it also benefited a great museum which gives back to the community as well.

Below are some photos from the fashion show. We all had a very pleasant time (although Lauren was dearly missed), and got to appreciate our work within its proper context.

Arts and Flowers 2008

The Arts and Flowers event at the Phoenix Art Museum was a fantastic experience. It allowed us to publicly display our designs and utilize our creativity to reinterpret fine works of art. Rather than simply creating a floral arrangement to match the art's color and style, we chose to design our pieces to express the emotions conveyed by the art. We wanted to bring the art alive through flowers and demonstrate our own innovation and talent.
For those who attended the event, we hope you enjoyed all that it had to offer. If you were

We would like to thank the Phoenix Art Museum for asking us to participate in this special event. We would also like to thank anyone who attended and viewed our designs; we appreciate the enthusiasm and it means a great deal to have the support of our clients and friends! We are looking forward to being involved with this event again in 2009, and we will certainly have another round of splendid reinterpretations of fine art.

Upcoming Event

Camelback Flowershop has been asked to participate in a unique exhibition at the Phoenix Art Museum entitled Arts & Flowers 2008! This four day event will demonstrate how floral designs, created by valley shops, can compliment and reinterpret works of art. "The floral masterpieces," according to Susan von Hellens, Chairwoman of the Phoenix Art Museum League, "will be designed to harmonize perfectly with the works of art on display."

This is our second year participating in this event and we have chosen two very special art pieces to inspire our creativity; the first is 4 Ice Cream Cones by Wayne Thiebaud and the second is The Leek Seller by Alfred Swieykowski. We invite you to come and see how we reinterpret these works of art through flowers. It will be a fun and casual way to enjoy the Museum as well as our floral work!

This event will be held at the Phoenix Art Museum beginning Thursday, March 6 and ending Sunday, March 9. Entry to this special event is included with the price of admission to the Museum. Multiple valley designers will be featured and the works of art will come alive when paired with the natural beauty of flowers!

For more information about events the Museum is offering during these four days, please take a look at their website http://www.phxart.org/events/programs.aspx We encourage everyone to attend and you will be surprised by our creative harmonization of flowers and art!

Valentine's Day was a Success!

Well, Valentine's Day 2008 has come and gone. It was a terrific day, and it was wonderful to connect with clients we rarely get a chance to see. Thank you to all of our "old time" clients, as well as those who used us for the first time this year...without you, it would just be a regular day here at the shop (and we like to spice things up a bit every now and then)!

It was a labor intesive week for those of us working at the shop, but well worth the late night giggles and tired feet. We thought it would be fun to show you a few "behind the scenes" photos of the week leading up to the big day; please pardon some of our attire, but at one o'clock in the morning, a sweatshirt and scarf is all one wants to wear!

Thank you again to everyone and we hope to see you in the near future, or at the very least, next Valentine's Day: same time same place!
