8 Tablespoons Of : POMPOM Florists.

POMPOM Florists

Name : Luisa Alejandre

Favorite Flower : Anthurium are my all time favorite.
When I was a kid, my dad used to get me Anthuriums all the time. My current favorite flowers are Anemones and Proteas.

Favorite Color : Blue and Red... Lately also Yellow.

 Who/What Inspires Your Art : I get inspired by the outdoors. I love all of the textures and colors I see when I really focus on the beauty of it all. It's kind of weird to admit, but I also do get inspired by the beauty of all the flowers around me as well. When I have a variety of options to choose from, I look at how different and beautiful they each are in their own way, and it is actually right there and then that I start imagining what it is that I am going to create with them. I also get inspired by individuals. Thinking about the client who will be receiving the flowers and what their personal taste may be like. It all gets me super inspired. I love imagining the smile of the client when receiving their unique arrangement. Inspiration also comes from the all around experience of buying the flowers, choosing which flowers will meet the specific need of my clients, cleaning and caring for the individual flowers, etc... Outside of the flowers themselves, I get a lot of inspiration from magazines, photographs, and just everyday objects.

Favorite Song/Artist to Listen to While Working : Brandon Flowers ( Always ) and lately a song called " Good Girls " by Lany.

Favorite Arrangement/ Event You've Arranged So Far : Jessica Brock Wedding. I created 8 Floral Arrangements all inspired by different books that held a special memory for the bride and groom. My Favorite Arrangements from the Wedding were the ones inspired by " The Great Gatsby " and " Game of Thrones "

How Do You Keep Motivated : By consistently visualizing myself finally working inside of my future Workshop. I imagine how beautiful and magical my Workshop will be with all the decorations and flowers around it. A lot of hard work and love will go into my Workshop and I plan to push  forward with my current work with a lot of intention and energy. Motivation for me also comes from consistently looking at photos of flowers, floral arrangements and floral installations that I may one day want to create. Looking at tutorials and how-to videos, and looking at flowers all around my own home also motivates me. My favorite unexpected motivation is when someone new comes up to me and says something like, " Hey, you're a florist, right? Would you be interesting in... " then all of a sudden I have a new client without intending to have gained one. It's the best feeling and pushes me to create more for new potential clients. 

Dream Client : I love the ones that have no time to pick flowers and they let me pick whatever I want. The ones that explained their concept to me and trust my taste and experience as an artist. Also, It is a huge plus when the client values your work and doesn't try to negotiate a lower price for the arrangement. Finding that client that truly appreciates the hard work and dedication that will go to the arrangement is a dream come true.
