Thanksgiving in January, San Francisco. The traditional “Early Bird Turkey Day” almost didn’t happen for these SF natives, but they wouldn’t let the two months that had past bring them down.
On a warm and sunny California winter morning Heather and I made our way to the SF Flower Market with the rich tones of that holiday in our minds. True to our mission, we opted for the more seasonally appropriate counterparts to chrysanthemums and turning foliage. The wild textures of grevillia and pincushions played to the large contemporary paintings throughout the home, and the whimsical presence of children’s items strewn about. Classic yet playful carnations married the eggy tulips and electric anemones in a contemporary twist on Thanksgiving tradition.
The day felt like playtime- a little bit surreal. The weather gods were smiling on us, and the clients gave us the “you’re the professional” go-ahead to flex our creative muscles. Thank you Goorin family! Such a wonderful opportunity.
