Designing with one of the best!
At Bank of Memories we are always looking for ways to make different and beautiful arrangements. On Wednesday, July 20 we had the opportunity to meet and design with Hitomi Gilliam, a world renown floral designer. She has authored 5 books to date, the most recent titled "Creative Edge." In 2008, she won "Gold" and "Best in Show" by invitation only international entry at Singapore Garden Festival, just to name a few awards. Hitomi was such an inspiration to us. Not only was she an awesome floral designer, but also a very kind person. We learned so many new cutting edge design concepts and neat techniques to apply in our every day work. Melissa Maas is shown designing with Hitomi on stage. What a lucky girl!! Melissa designed the yellow bouquet shown and it seemed to be one of Hitomi's favorites!
