What a pleasure it was to work with PG and Nancy to celebrate Nancy’s graduation from CalState Long Beach! Venue was in Spaghettini Grill and Bar in Seal Beach, who’s staff were just awesome to work with. I created the gorgeous centerpieces in glass cube vases which I embellished with gold and black rhinestone ribbon, filled them with beautiful yellow roses, cymbidium roses and gerberas, mixed in some interesting foliage such as Song of India, pepperberries, eucalyptus, oregonia, variegated ti leaves, dianthus, escabiosa pods and dusty miller. 
As guests enter the room, they were welcome to check in to see where they will sit,- I wrote their names on a little place cards. A wishing tree I made with manzanita branch,  was there for them to write on their well wishes, greetings and happy thoughts for the beloved grad Nancy! I heard it was a hit!
