Design Star March Madness Tournament

Design Star March Madness Tournament

Yes, you read that right. This year we are celebrating TEN YEARS of Mayesh Design Star. Where has the time gone?! We wanted to do something fun to commemorate a decade of Design Stars, and a March Madness-style tournament featuring our past designers seemed like the perfect way to do just that. 



Here's how it will work... 


Each of the fourteen designers participating in the tournament will receive a surprise box of flowers in one of three color palettes. Their only task is to design absolutely anything their heart desires, using the fresh items from Mayesh, and any hard goods or accessories they want.


Once they have created their masterpieces and sent us all the fabulous photos, they will face off in a March Madness bracket-style tournament, voted on by YOU! Each round will be open to public voting for five days to decide which designers move onto the next round. Once you've narrowed it down to your favorite two designers, they will both create a final-round design to determine the winner!


Round one voting will kick off on March 1st, but before we get to that, let's take a walk down memory lane and reunite you with all of your favorite past Mayesh Design Stars and each of their most-watched design videos!

You may have noticed that one designer is missing, and unfortunately, Shean Strong is out of the country this month and unable to participate. We'll miss having his gorgeous designs compete in our bracket, but just for fun, here is Shean's top video on Youtube with 268K views, Foam vs. Wire - it was a good one!


We hope you are as excited as we are to see what these brilliant designers come up with upon receiving their surprise box of blooms from the one & only Kelly Pulls


Stay tuned & watch for the voting to open next week on March 1st!
