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.
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.
