Flower Power! with Phoenix NACE

Phoenix NACE talks Flower Power! 

The Panel of Floral and Event Designers answered questions from seasonality to Pinterest and their favorite flowers to work with. They all created some amazing centerpieces to accent the Linens from Southwick Linens for the Dining tables that went from Romantic to Unique. Floral designers from Petal Pushers, Lux Floral Events, Tabletops Etc., Fred's Signature Floral Events and Encore Creative brought out all the stops to show u snew trends and designs. 

Members and guests were able to design their own bud vases that were later donated to charity by our hosts Arizona Family Florists.

During Registration and Cocktail Hour with new member Pourmasters, everyone took some fun pictures at the Hip Booth by Hagerty Photography.

After a delicious round of Appetizers such as Steak Bites and salmon bruschetta hosted by Nibblers Catering, and some fabulous coffees frfom Creative Cappuccino,
