Mornings with Mayesh: Creative Ideas for Floral Businesses

Morning with Mayesh: Drew Rios on Creative Ideas for Floral Businesses

 

Our first 2021 Mayesh Design Star, Drew Rios of Rogue&Fox Floral Co was my special guest for our first Mornings with Mayesh of the new year. Drew answered all of the questions that came in about her Avant-Garde Ceremony floral installation video. Afterward, we chatted about creative ideas to incorporate into your business - collaborating with other artists, selling “trending now” items, upcoming or current floral trends & more.


Stay tuned for the next show & keep on sending in your floral questions! Below you will find the podcast, video replay, and show notes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

SHOW NOTES


 

VIDEO QUESTIONS

 

  • Michael:
    • Could you provide a total cost of goods used and what your retail charge for this would be? Using the items you did with abandon is great...but curious as to the cost? 
      • 500-700 cost for flowers
      • column = 500-700
      • Installation pricing - Drew usually does a 5 times markup 
      • total = 5000-7000
      • can incorporate less dried to lower the cost
    • Also, aren't you concerned with the longevity of the fresh product with no water source? Thanks!
  • alytimmermann:
    • Love this! How long would a piece like this last/ how far in advance could you design it?
      • This piece will last several days. I’d construct this two days before and plug in the vibrant delicate floral last.

  • Carol: If you could ask Drew alternative ways to hang the chicken wire structure on the wall, that would be super. Not always do we have the flexibility to make a hole in the wall ...

  • How do I become a Mayesh Design Star?
