The opportunity to bring a client's vision to life is what we live for here at Celsia. It's the most fulfilling feeling to see all those pages of sketches and endless pins on a Pinterest board turned in to a tangible design at a celebration event.
We had this joy recently when we were asked to dream up and create florals for Farmacie's long table dinner event. A collaborative effort by many local businesses (and yes, you know we love a good collaboration) the event raised money for Vancouver-based organisations Quest Food Exchange and Backpack Buddies.
Drawing on a natural, organic and sustainable vision which supports Farmacie's ethos, we worked predominantly with foliage for this entire event. We made greenery chandeliers which were suspended from the ceiling, laid greens garlands down the length of the long tables and made minimalist floral arrangements in wooden planter boxes which were accompanied by herb planters donated by Urban Zucchini.
The talented ladies as Spruce Collective pulled it all together with their unique decor and eye for detail, and we think you'll agree the result was a magical evening.
