Westfield Century City Wreath Production

This season I had the opportunity to make 18 60” wreaths for the trellis seating areas at Westfield Century City. All the work was done on site and installed the following day.  Each wreath had to be bolted together, lit with 5 100 bulb LED light strands and over 30 different pieces of decor. It was crunch time as I was hired last minute to complete the task Black Friday weekend! My nickname “Edward Scissorhands” has stuck with me way past my retail days.

Each element or ingredient as I sometimes say, had to be counted and calculated to make sure each wreath looked the same and we had equal parts.  I used good quality wire cutters to cut the long bushy stems into smaller pieces and applied layers of decor using a hot glue pan with commercial grade glue. This was very important as the wreaths hung upside down and needed to be extra secure.

The finished wreaths were layered with various size succulents, wispy frosted bits, multiple pine sprigs , greenery blended sprays and  pearl and crystal accents. Once finished they weighed about 50 pounds. Gorgeous look for Christmas decor in Los Angeles! Continue reading

On Set Today! Talk about tinsel in Tinsel town!

Shot at a private residence in Encino, CA I was brought into the project for my expertise in tree design and decoration, to seamlessly execute the Director’s vision. Silver was the central focus, with the mantra: Add more tinsel! This was a fun opportunity, and it brought me back to my childhood on just how much of a mess it can make! Doing projects like this allows me to incorporate everyday materials. Did you see the tin foil?

Victoria Gardens Christmas House

 

This past season I was a part of the interior design and installation for the decor of the Santa Experience at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.  Santa Houses have come along way from the days of a simple mall set up.  This three-room structure with air-conditioning, custom ceiling detail, crown molding, built in wood shelving, designer fabrics, and state of the art technology is by far the largest Santa house I have yet to partake in.

LYFT Wreath

Having a ball today as I complete this custom 4′ illuminated wreath. This design was for the ride sharing company Lyft that had requested a statement piece in pink and silver for passengers to post their Holiday selfies. I decorated this one by sitting in the middle where I was able to easily see and access each area. Doing pieces like this that are different and unique always gets my creativity going and inspires me to think outside the box. Classy as always!

Best Buy Holiday 2017

I had the opportunity to create the décor for 6 different sets that gave an overall Christmas look to 6 different themes ranging from Grandma’s house to settings portraying equality in this era of non-traditional families. This project demonstrated how quickly and effectively I could work under pressure and strict timelines. This project was completed in less then 10 days.
