As some of you who know me already know, I have been working hard the last year and half on health. A former assistant sent me a movie to watch, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead , since I had a similar condition to Joe Cross in the film. Well, I started juicing and thinking more about plant-based diet and then along comes potential client Ana Zaharia, a holistic nutritionist looking for a florist for her wedding. Once I saw her website and what she did we became each others clients. Ana’s recipes were so delicious and easy, with the juicing I started from watching the movie and Ana’s recipes and guidance, supporting what I learned in the film, I soon started feeling so much better. As Ana’s wedding rolled around I felt very inspired and excited to incorporate what she taught me into the decor. With greens being the most important part of my new regime I had that thought to make flowers out of some of the gorgeous heirloom lettuces floating around the green market and insert them into her centerpieces. I may very well have been more excited about the idea then she . Well they were a hit, so when I was asked to do flowers for a luncheon for Kathy Freston for her book on vegan lifestyle a form of this design seemed perfect and met with rave reviews. So you never know where inspiration is coming from!
And Ana and Chris are living happily ever after!
