We are thrilled to see Christian again. He has been called the “Yves Saint Laurent of flowers!” We worked with this past fall with a beautiful wedding in Paris and looking forward to working with him again this summer. If you ever want to splurge on a vase, I recommend his Diablo vases. It is a gorgeous square vase, hand blown glass and shimmery in nature with a nice hole in the middle. They come in various sizes and colors. I put sweet peas in mine. I tripled boxed it for the flight home from Paris.
I've already passed on the word to Eva Longoria and Tony Parker for their French wedding this summer. Hopefully, they'll take advantage of this great designer.
Check on our website in a couple of weeks to see Christian's work from this past fall.
In the meantime, any of you in the Dallas - Fort Worth area should support the museum and attend one of these events. I'll be there!
