FBMJ throws a networking event for industry creatives to celebrate spring
It’s no secret how much we adore Flowers by Brett Matthew John: their breathtaking floral arrangements have been featured in many of our editorials over the past two years (Brett, we will forever be in love with your Paddle Pop roses!)
We are constantly inspired by the mind-blowing creativeness and perfection that the team delivers with every arrangement, so imagine our excitement when we were asked to team up with Brett and GGPR Agency for his spring showcase!
Set inside their boutique Prahran studio last Thursday, the workshop was transformed into an explosion of floral delight as the FBMJ Team displayed their floristry collection and techniques for an intimate audience, which included 80 event industry leaders, clients, family members, and friends.
It was a LENZO family affair, with a collaborative effort by many of our fave suppliers in the industry: Sketch & Etch designed the amazing media wall letters, acrylic menus, drink stirrers and cake topper; Fourside Events provided the appetising food with talented bar staff; Pickawall supplied the window decals; and the glassware was hired from Place Settings.
Of course, the flowers completely stole the show, being suspended on custom arches at the shopfront entrance and inside by Shape Steel (who also created that #INCRED media wall structure!) through to an incredibly lush grazing table decoration and peppered throughout the store.
The night was a major success and the overall atmosphere could only be described as fresh and full of fun vibes - just like Brett! Yellowglen's Sunset Spritz collection kept the drinks flowing right up until the very end, with Brett cutting into a delicious cake baked by Sweet Bakes to commemorate the success of his team over the past two years.
Each guest was spoilt with a full bouquet of peonies on their departure, which were wrapped in a personalised FBMJ floral carrier (which is named 'The Carrie Bradshaw' - how #COOL is that?! - and are available to buy in-store and over the phone!)
As Flowers by Brett Matthew John blooms into its 2nd year, we just want to take the time to say we’ve been fortunate enough to watch Brett and his team kick all the flower + business goals since the start, and we can’t wait to work with these talented individuals again in the near future!
Congratulations, Brett, Madi, and Emily! You deserve the #FLOWERQUEENS title of 2018! Keep creating magic!
Love, LENZO x
