My all-time favorite San Francisco event is coming up this week: the Bouquets to Art floral exhibit. The idea behind it is genius: florists interpret a masterpiece of art or sculpture, like a Picasso or a Rodin using flowers. Think fine art meets floral design. (Honestly, if art history was ever this exciting I might have stayed awake in every class! ) Naturally, several of our Certified By The Guide Northern California floral designers will be showcased, including Patricia Gibbons, Branch Out, Fantasy Florals, Laurel Designs, Sunshine Flowers, Violetta and Waterlily Pond.
The event’s opening party will feature floral décor and cocktail arrangements by Branch Out’s Leighsa Smyser. Be sure to stop by the Piazzoni Murals Room to take in her floral sculpture designed to match the earth toned landscape mural that fills the room. Elements like artichokes, hydrangea, orchids, flax leaves, vendela and sahara roses echo the terrain of hills and trees in the mural.
After the show, visit the museum’s incredible cafe for Bon Appetite’s delectable, fresh and organic selection of light fare. Let us know what you experience if you get to visit. See you there!
