This past weekend Create & Cultivate hosted it’s first ever Vision Summit in Miami Beach. It was literally in my back yard… literally. I went to their event in Chicago in August and it was amazing. The Create & Cultivate effect, as I like to call it, is over-the-top, beautiful, fun & above all, inspiring. The generosity of the event is awe-inspiring.


A big part of the awesomeness comes from the incredible creativity and beauty that is infused into every part of the event. In particular, it’s the over abundance of beautiful floral design around every corner. Because these are the things I nerd out about, I knew that this floral awesomeness was the work of none other than the amazing East Olivia team. They’re a group of creative geniuses who dream up and execute these drool-worthy floral designs.


So you can imagine my excitement when I found out they were looking for local freelance support during the Miami Vision Summit. I jumped at the chance to work with them over the two days leading up to the event and the day of. They truly are incredibly kind and beautiful souls. I loved learning their process and how they bring these beautiful ideas to life. On top of that, they are just so fun to spend time with.

We worked on a total of 16 floral installations for the event. It was a crazy few days, but totally worth it because we, quite literally, had the chance to set the stage for all the incredible, inspiring women who attended the event.


The sessions and connections that took place during the Summit will truly have a ripple effect in South Florida and beyond. I am honored to have been able to play a small part in the amazingness that took place and am grateful to the women of East Olivia who truly embodied the vibe and spirit of Create & Cultivate.
