What We're Working On . . .

Please pardon the dust. This week De La Rose is busy making 36 centerpieces for a special event put on by The Orange County Museum of Art The event is scheduled to take place this Friday at The Hyatt in Costa Mesa. The theme for the event is "A Modern Night" and De La Rose has been commissioned to design all of the florals.

Instead of the traditional centerpieces you see at every Orange County event, De La Rose will be creating 36 of these modern succulent branches to sit in the middle of a bed of colored stones on each table. We're excited to share photographs of the final design. Stay tuned!

'Tis The Season For Peonies

As is fitting for such a lovely flower, peony plants derive their name from a Greek myth. Paeon, a student under Aesculapius, god of medicine, was well aware of the medicinal qualities of peony plants. He used them to heal a wound suffered by the god, Pluto. The upstaged Aesculapius wasn't pleased and threatened retribution, but, in one of those charming metamorphoses sprinkled liberally throughout the pages of Greek mythology, Pluto saved Paeon's life: he turned him into a peony plant.


Now is the time to find these beautiful Peonies in full bloom. Stop by De Le Rose and pick up a little or a lot to fill your home with a little happiness and healing power.

Comerica Women's Business Symposium

Back in March, De La Rose had the privilege of sponsoring the Comerica Women's Conference hosted by Camille Jayne of the Irvine based company, The Jayne Group. The all women's event was held at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine and featured speakers from all over the Orange County area.

De La Rose was offered the opportunity to provide a large arrangement to be given away in a raffle at the end of the evening, along with a $50 gift certificate for a future arrangement. We were also pleased to provide 200 long-stem red roses to each conference participant. It was truly a successful event and we were proud that De La Rose was invited to represent as one of Orange County's most prestigous floral designers.

Mother's Day Is Coming!!!

"A mother's love is like a garden. Her children are the seeds. And as they grow, she tends to them. Fulfilling all their needs. Her kindness is like sunshine that warms them as they flower. Her nurturing, like springtime rain, a soft and gentle shower. A mother's love is like a garden reflecting tender care. For wherever there is beauty, a mother's love is there." -Amanda Bradley
