Make Be-Leaves was contacted by DockATot company regarding an upcoming trade show where they wanted to design a silk floral ceiling in their booth. DockATot is an innovative snuggly “dock” or carrier that mimics the mother’s womb. This was quite a collaboration between the owner, who lives in Greece, the trade show booth designer, who lives in Germany, and DockATot’s coordinator in North Carolina and we’re in California.

trade show booth faux floral ceilingThe designer provided renderings of her vision of a beautiful faux floral ceiling, with individual silk rose stems hanging vertically to create the booth floral ceiling. During the design process, an exchange of photos of a variety of silk flower options were shared with all, and a final selection of artificial roses and silk greenery was made by DockATot’s team.

Make Be-Leaves calculated a quantity of 800 single stem silk roses and greenery stems required to fill the 20 ft. x 20 ft. space, then secured 7 ft long sections of fishing wire through each individual stem, and flame treated all stems prior to shipping. The final result at the trade show booth was absolutely spectacular! I’ve attached some photos, a favorite is the shot looking straight up at the floral ceiling.
