Happy Holidays & Happy New Year 2013, Please Recycle!

A very important fact about recycling: "Plastic bags and other plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kill as many as 1,000,000 sea creatures a year! Ever heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? It's twice the size of Texas and is floating somewhere between San Francisco and Hawaii. It's also 80 percent plastic, and weighs in at 3.5 million tons."

My Favorite Christmas Piece, a prototype created by STEM Events.

Welcome to la Calle Loíza

Evolution is a word that applies to some extent to what  has been happening in "la Calle Loíza" and let me tell you, I have been walking this street since I remember. Now is the time, the beginning of a golden age, where two cultures and folklore collide to provoke the senses: the young unafraid Puerto Ricans exposing their ideas in a totally new artistic way and the Dominicans with their unique sense of humor and way of living. New restaurants that mix the old ways of doing business in the area, like the Dominican Markets where you can find a variety of goods, including a nice, very nice cold Medalla beer. I was surprised yesterday when I noticed there was a sort of Market located at the vacant lot named Cinema Paradiso de Puerto Rico where young Puerto Ricans artists and writers were selling there works of art. It was extremely fabulous, I closed my eyes, yes; I closed them to hear the voices of all the people in the background and smell in the air the incense all over the place and I fell confused; where I'am, a market in New York, or a Hippie Market in Ibiza...

Yes, We Innovate at STEM Events and Flowers by Anabelle!!!

From time to time we visit Ibiza looking for new trends and ideas, tendencies that we incorporate in our event décor projects and in the creation of unique pieces, flower arrangements or focal points. We like to innovate, be unique. Our motive, our drive is the creation of projects of unforgettable appeal with a unique approach to blooming beauty. We travel around the Island this year and we visit two of the most important markets, the Hippie Market of Las Dalias and Punta Arabí.  We talked to a few locals in and out the markets, in particular artisans that sell around the beautiful beaches urban type jewelry using as the main piece flowers made out of paper, leather and other materials. Following you will find some pictures of fabulous people we met at the Island, pieces and places that inspired us. We think of us as innovators, our style evolves every day, that’s why every project, flower arrangement or event is unique. 

Following are two special photos that capture the impact of our experience, the finding of new trends and ideas.
