West Coast Vibes

B Floral sure knows how to travel.

Last week we spent a solid six sunny days in Los Angels to work on the annual OCRFA Super Saturday LA event. Our owner and lead designer, Bronwen Smith, is on the Board of Directors for OCRFA (Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance) and every year B Floral has the privilege of participating in the event- providing ALL of the florals- from the VIP tent to floral crown activations!

We started off the trip settling into our hotel, Le Meridien Delfina Santa Monica. I’ve gotta say, office work is much more do-able when you’re sipping lemonade pool-side.

We split up our time working between the flower market, Mayesh at LAX, and the hotel. When we weren’t working we were at the Santa Monica Pier. I’ve always loved going to the pier when visiting Santa Monica, and this time was even more fun as we were walking distance from the hotel!

Saturday, June 11th, was event day and we decked the Santa Monica Barker Hanger with all of our florals! A few hours later, the crowds poured in!

The event was such a success! As always, what an amazing way to support the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance!

And since a trip isn’t a trip without noting the FOOD – I want to highlight a couple of amazing meals I had last week!

The first was a delicious breakfast at Shoops. I got the “power scramble” which was: egg whites scrambled with chicken, spinach, mushrooms, and mozzarella topped with fresh tomato and basil. The photo below doesn’t even do it justice. It was delish!

Another divine meal we enjoyed in LA was at One Pico at Shutters on the Beach. Our boss’s assistant, Celia (my co-worker), did a great job organizing a huge team dinner that night. Many amazing dishes and epic speeches were enjoyed as the bubbly flowed!

Looking forward to another epic LA work trip next year!!
