Be Sage Conference / Flora Farms
Isn’t this place beautiful???? Flora Farms in Cabo is one of the coolest places I’ve been. It’s an outdoor restaurant (hello, Mexico) with an insane event space called the mango grove. The space is an open air field that’s lined with mango trees and a canopy of twinkle lights. It’s basically everyone’s dream. No wonder Adam Levine got married there.
To close out the Be Sage Conference in Cabo, attendees where treated to an off-site party at Flora Farms. The most delicious food (butternut squash pizza, thankyouverymuch) and cocktails (lavendar martinis and carrot juice margaritas, thankyouverymuchagain). It was my job to design a space that fit in with the environment, brought pops of happy colors, and used the local land as my inspiration.
To do that, we grabbed tomatillos, bananas, and hibiscus flowers from the farmer’s market at Floral Farms to decorate communal farm tables that had bright yellow runners on them. Local sunflowers were in jam jars on the tables. To keep it modern, which you is my style, I chose clean lanterns and a fun geometric pattern on the linens.
The canopy of lights gave a soft glow as we all chatted about the amazing things we’ve learned those past two days. The warm breeze brought sniffs of mango to our noses as we sipped on locally crafted cocktails.
This is the last blog post in the series of three all about the Be Sage Conference that I designed in Cabo. The three day, three location event, was one of my favorite projects to date. You can see the Mexican Fiesta Welcome Party around the pool and the Contemporary Conference room here. I’m booking more corporate and conference design work for 2017 and 2018. Reach out if you need art direction and floral design for an event you are hosting.
