After decades of collaborative, fabulous events from New York to Miami, we have established a close rapport with top venues, vendors and planners.

Our gifted and dedicated staff provides unparalleled experience and professionalism. We represent diverse cultures and backgrounds, and bring a unique blend of talent, ingenuity and perspective to each project. We employ artists, seamstresses, carpenters, upholsterers—you name it, we can create it. We’re a talented group, and every one of us is committed to making your experience sheer perfection.
If you can dream it, we can create it. A special occasion calls for fragrant, beautiful and creative details. We take pride in those details so that you can relax, enjoy and impress your guests. From our initial concept meeting through design, fabrication and installation, your gala, wedding, party or celebration is tailor-made to work within your budget and timeline to bring your unique vision to life.
Props & Fabrication
Our creativity knows no bounds. When an occasion calls for complete originality, gorgeous touches or bold statements, our creative team is beyond compare. With masterful workmanship, we can create an exquisite altar or chuppah for a wedding, a custom-built bar for a corporate holiday party, or a stunning centerpiece. We can creatively embellish any theme and elevate your event above your wildest expectations.
Beauty is at the heart of our business. From a bride’s bouquet or groom’s boutonnière to a glorious centerpiece or a massive installation—stunning flowers, plants, trees and greenery are central to what we do. We utilize only the freshest, most lush and stunning florals in original, unique and extraordinary designs that add to the overall beauty of your occasion.

A Partnership Founded in Business & Forged in Love
Rick and Christopher are not only business partners, they were happily married in October 2014. When they're not creating fabulous events, they escape to their Southern Maryland farm where they reside with a menagerie of dogs, animals and birds. They raise ever-expanding flocks of exotic fowl, conserve some of the rarest bloodlines of heritage farm animals and proudly tend to their abundant vegetable and flower gardens. Many of the specialty flowers used in our events are lovingly grown and harvested by Rick and Christopher themselves.
