One of our most stunning and popular artificial trees is the custom silk Cherry Blossom. The contrast of our high quality, two-tone pink foliage built on beautiful dark mahogany wood trunks creates a truly spectacular tree that is always in bloom. They are versatile and stunning as petite 4 to 6 foot trees, as they are as full-sized specimens. These distinct Make Be-Leaves projects showcase that versatility well:
Silk Cherry Blossom Trees, Tailor-Made For Wedding
‘Tailor-made’ couldn’t be a more fitting description of the custom Cherry Blossom trees Make Be-Leaves created for Rosanna Capriati’s upcoming wedding next month in Chicago since Rosanna is the manager of the iconic gown designer Vera Wang’s flagship Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills boutique. Rosanna’s fiancé, Kevin Andersen contacted Make Be-Leaves a couple of months ago frustrated that he and Rosanna could not find the perfect silk Cherry Blossom trees locally in Chicago. We’ve had great fun designing their trees into organic shapes in collaboration with the couple. The trees will be the focal points of their main banquet table at the wedding reception.
To give you a preview, we photographed their trees at the Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village, prior to boxing and shipping the trees. Stay tuned for photos of the special day, including Rosanna’s custom Vera Wang wedding dress — before even its runway debut!
Getting Ready To Ring In Chinese New Year at Union Bank
With Asian symbolism dating back hundreds of years, it’s no surprise that the Cherry Blossom tree would become a project for us leading up to Chinese New Year. We’re busy creating custom artificial Cherry Blossom trees that will be displayed in more than a dozen Union Bank locations throughout California over Chinese New Year. Look for them in a location near you leading up to the New Year, which falls on February 19, 2015.>
Grand, Complex Display Blooms at the Beverly CenterLast January, Make Be-Leaves worked closely with Lee Brant of Lee Brant Landscaping, and April Alexander of Alexander & Willis to design custom artificial Cherry Blossom trees for a complex two-floor mall display at the Beverly Center in Beverly Hills.
They include a custom, 14 foot tall by 14 foot wide, canopied silk Cherry Blossom tree, designed to show the tree at the beginning of the season with just a hint of cherry blossoms on show. The large tree was then decorated with small Chinese lanterns, a variety of iconic Chinese decorations and three more Cherry Blossom trees, 8 feet tall and in full bloom at the base of the tall tree.
When taking photographs of the display, I saw passing shoppers stop and stare — some even taking photos of the grand Cherry Blossom display themselves!
They’re not the only Cherry Blossom trees we’ve been called on to create: Last January, Make Be-Leaves constructed a 45 custom silk Cherry Blossom trees for a large Chinese New Year event in Las Vegas. In the meanwhile, the custom 8 foot silk Cherry Blossom trees constructed for the Geisha Japanese Restaurant near San Francisco have been such a hit that the owners have been thrilled that customers regularly request having their photo taken next to the colorful, elegant trees.
What can we create for you?
