Te Amo Mucho

In full bloom

It’s not everyday that I can take a break from being a PR professional and be a guest at an event instead of the organiser.

So when it does happen, I really savor the moment.

Just beautiful
Just beautiful

And that’s exactly what happened when I attended the VIP preview and new collection launch of the country’s pioneer luxury floral boutique, Te Amo Floristeria.

Hosted by my friend, the stylish Yuki Tansengco, the mood was light and bubbly – as expected when you have a room full of flowers and a gaggle of girls sipping on champagne.

Blooms and bubbly: a heady combination

The program itself was fairly simple: pick out your choice cuts and then create your own bouquet.

Now, those who know me very well will know that such a seemingly simple task would be something I would find quite complicated – because unfortunately, there is no Martha Stewart-like bone in my body #truth

So gratefully, I accepted the assistance of Melchor, one of the brand’s expert florists, and with his help I put together a beautiful bouquet inspired by one of my all-time favourite novels: The Secret Garden.

From him I learned that the first thing you need to do is pick the greens for the base, after which you choose your focal flowers, then your secondary flowers and lastly, your fillers.

The next step would be to cut them to size

Gently wrap the bouquet in paper and freshen it up with a little water

Thank you, Melchor!
And voila! All done. Thank you, Melchor 🙂

I also got to check out their premium preserved blooms – blossoms cut at the highest of their quality and then preserved with a non-toxic moisturizer that leaves the petals as wonderfully pristine as they were before harvest.

Beautifully boxed and made to last for months or even several years if stored properly

All in all, it was an afternoon well spent and I’m so happy I was able to drop by and spend time with these ladies

Having a Ms. Philippines moment, haha!
