LUX is proud to announce the grand opening of our new consultation suites housed within the Arizona Flower Market! To commemorate this exciting milestone, we partnered with Phoenix NACE‘s (National Association for Catering and Events) October event. Held right here in the Phoenix Flower District, many wedding industry professionals and creative minds attended the Q&A session and floral showcase.
The evening began with a tour through our new LUX office suites, complete with a main sitting room and two separate consultation offices. These suites are lavishly adorned to make clients feel pampered and help engaged couples envision their own perfect wedding. We’d love to show you around sometime too!
After the LUX tour, guests gathered in the main warehouse of Arizona Flower Market to meet, mingle and admire all the beautiful centerpieces created by florists from around the valley. True to each florist’s style, every centerpiece presented its own unique design. On one table, an arrangement by Petal Pusher combined cascading white orchids with green berries, white tulips, kale and accents of gold for a stunning contemporary centerpiece. Neighboring it was an innovative minimalist floral ring by Encore Creative. The piece featured wild curly willow wrapping around a circular structure, enhanced with bear grass, ti leaf, and finished with a solitary bouquet of purple carnations. Every gorgeous creation had its own style to offer, sparking endless ideas to inspire new floral creations.
Our own floral designers at LUX created a beautiful autumn themed centerpiece. Sunset-orange marigolds, bear grass, and miniature decorative pumpkins were arranged to look as if they were naturally sprouting up from the center of a log.
A second LUX arrangement took a more traditional approach with a mix of red ranunculus, blue anemones, red tulips, and white lisianthus, all sitting on a bed of seeded eucalyptus. A trio of smaller accent arrangements surrounded the larger centerpiece.
During cocktail hour, Nibblers Catering served delectable steak bites and salmon bruschetta appetizers, which paired well with the heavenly honey-crisp apple sangria provided by Pour Masters. Kick Ass Kakes offered delightful mini apple tarts, carrot cake bites, and their signature macarons. Our sister company, Fantastic Fruit, provided luscious fruit bouquets. Guests could choose the healthy option of fresh, unadorned fruit pieces or the sweeter option of fruit completely smothered in tasty melted chocolate (we went for the chocolate of course!).
There were many fun activities to enjoy as well, including build-your-own bud vases, which were then donated to a local charity. HIP Booth provided a fun floral themed photo booth where guests could take their own “ultimate selfie” with friends.
The final portion of the night included a delicious meal from Herb Box Catering. They prepared Mediterranean spiced chicken with Greek salad, hummus, and tzatziki – which was delicious! We were also thrilled to sample the most delicious espresso creations by Creative Cappuccino. With fun and tempting add-ins like cinnamon sticks, rock sugar stir sticks, and chocolate covered espresso beans, each cup was completely customizable to every taste!
During dinner, five floral experts from across the valley took the stage and held a Q&A panel for guests. The floral panel included representatives from Arizona Flower Market, Petal Pusher, Fred’s Signature Floral Events, Table Tops Etc., and Encore Creative.
We had an absolute blast with all of our NACE friendors! Now that the LUX suites are open, we are more than ready to help you find the perfect floral creations for your own special day!
