Last weekend we had our annual Perfect Parties event at the Women's Club where several experts hold seminars between all the shopping, eating, and drinking. Among the talent, Raed Kakish of Indulge & Bloom gave a floral demonstration on holiday centerpieces, ornaments, lights, and flowers. He talked about trends like squirrels (yep) and other fuzzy woodland creatures and how to cluster candles on mirrors with roses and water. When he lit up that final display with multi-colored LED lights the crowd went crazy. In case you missed it—or you just want more—Raed will have an open house this weekend with more demos and deals—all holiday inventory will be 20 percent off. Plus he'll have wine, mimosas, hot cider, and appetizers on hand.
