I am always captivated when the media looks back on a year and you see so many events that occurred during the year that forever change the landscape of America and how the rest of the world views our wonderful nation. So I thought I would reflect on 2009 at Greenery Productions and the entire family as our proud owner Linda Grier likes to see it. We started our 21st year, her older son Mickey graduated from UCF's Rosen School of Hospitality in May, her younger son Matt was married in August and we ended the year in a new location all under one roof. With the hard work and dedication of the entire Greenery Production family, we participated in over 150 weddings, opened the Hilton Orlando, Hilton & Waldorf Astoria Bonnet Creek and the Westin Lake Mary. Our company is a multi-faceted company offering a diverse range of products and services. All three properties above included our interiorscape department headed by Robbin Ward designing and installing live plant specimens in record time. Furthermore both Hilton's above & the Waldorf Astoria required the expertise of our Christmas department headed by Bert Orsini. If you didn't get a chance to visit any of these properties at Christmas time, you must take time out of your busy schedule next year not only to enjoy a great meal at these hotels, but take in the beautiful Christmas decor. If Bert and her team of elves weren't busy enough, we began our first year of Christmas decorating at the prestigious Peabody Orlando. This was only the tip of the iceberg for our team of elves, spending many restless nights bringing so many of Orlando's finest hotels into the spirit of Christmas in the blink of an eye. Additionally we were awarded the exclusive floral and foliage contract for social and corporate events at the Hilton Orlando. Please allow me to share with you images of the Hilton Orlando grand opening. Of course this is only a tidbit of all that we accomplished in 2009 so be sure and check back often to find new images (especially of the Rain Forest themed grand opening of the Hilton & Waldorf Astoria Bonnet Creek) and details of all that happened in 2009. With the help of Room Service Rentals, we were able to create a stunning table top display. Chargers, candles of of course the floral all designed & provided by Greenery Productions. Linens provided by our good friends at BBJ Linens.
The idea of the "Event Alley" was to capture a wedding ceremony and reception in a small space. Again leaning our our friends at Room Service Rental, Occassions by Shangri-La and Quest Drape made designing and implementing the overlook a breeze. The great thing about working with Greenery Productions for corporate and social events including weddings is we just don't design floral we design events. We have all the best resources to create your event. Specializing in weddings is my passion. So why spend all your time, energy and hard earned money trying to pull it all together, hire us and and let us take care of all the details for you.
Indian weddings area unique opportunity to create wonderful displays of floral and decor. At the request of our partners of Occasions by Shangri-La, we created two wonderful floral settings to embellish the tables.
Continuing down the Event Alley runway was Room Service Rental. At Lindsay's request we created a unique display of pink floral to bring her illuminated bar alive by attaching magenta mokara orchids to white kuwa branches which then appeared to be floating. The custom Hilton monogrammed pillows were such a great touch and very affordable from what I am told.
The dinner function and two after parties were designed, implemented and managed by Mark Wells of Hello Florida. Working with Mark is always exciting as he pushes us to stay outside the box. He has a remarkable talent for seeing the big picture while never overlooking the smallest of detail. The dinner reception tables had three different floral designs. My favorite was the oblong Plexiglas vessel with a unique design of Charlie Brown cymbidium orchids, steel grass and curly willow tips with floating square candles illuminating the centerpiece and table.
Travelers Palms provided by Greenery Productions are all this air dome needed to add just the right amount of color and interest to this already dynamic structure.
Our signature palace vases doubles as a lamp. Areca Palm Trees and Ficus Ali accented the furniture groupings, stage and perimeter. So I conclude this post wishing everyone a wonderful 2010. We look forward to working with existing and new prospects in 2010 and invite each of you reach out to us for all your floral, foliage and Christmas needs. No matter how small the detail or how large the request, Greenery Productions is committed to making it right.
