Mayesh Wholesale Florists presents the 3nd Annual Art in Full Bloom event to benefit Safe Nest, Oct. 14, 2014 from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Mayesh Wholesale Flowers, 3950 W. Diablo #B1, Las Vegas..
Art in Full Bloom is an innovative evening that pairs original art from local artists and floral designers to create unique one-of-a-kind installations. This year, Mayesh Wholesale Florists ran a national Floral Fantasy contest and selected two winners to come to Las Vegas and build their amazing designs.
Korie Mulleady, The Enchanted Florist, Orange, Calif, designed an inter-active statement piece about domestic violence. The design is a wall that is covered with graffiti that are words a victim of domestic violence would hear. Guests can replace the words with flowers to create a one-of-a-kind piece of floral art. “This design relates back the theme of the evening. Seeing the awful words on the wall might be startling to people but it is a reminder of why we are there,” said Mulleady. “In the end, with the help of the guests, the transformation of the wall is complete and the ugliness that was once there is replaced by beauty.”
Noralyn Romac from Mayesh, Detriot, is also coming to Las Vegas to build her fantasy design. Using a live model, Romac will transform her into Mother Earth. “Mother Nature embodies the beauty she creates from the stem to the bloom, the moss to the mushroom and the branch to the leaf,” said Romac. “She is one with what she creates and wears it well.”
Additionally local College of Southern Nevada Art and Floral Design students will be competing together to create artistic or fashion related pieces. Art in Full Bloom is a unique opportunity for students to practice their skills.
Many of the artwork and floral designed will be auctioned off to benefit Safe Nest. All attendees are asked to bring a bag of gently used clothing for Safe Nest as well.
