Kelsea Olivia Gaynor  Floral design (specializing in large scale installations), creative direction, content creation. Passionate about creating beauty in NY + LA & beyond.

Woman on a *pink* mission... bouncing between coasts more than ever before. Excited. Proud. Tired. Driven. Motivated and above, all grateful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Soaking up a weekend at home with my boys, prototyping for @createcultivate NYC and unpacking and repacking for some travels next week to LA & Miami. I’ve always always wanted to travel for work and now I’m really getting to do just that. It is fun, exhilarating and also exhausting 😂⠀
Anyone else out there travel a lot for work? Would love to know how others find balance and maintain a solid footing while traveling so much. With each new milestone met I’m finding I then have that much more to learn 💕💕💕

They’re backkkkkkk 😍😍😍

Not a purist, nor a minimalist. Kinda a maximalist... ya feel? Also HBD to the queen @cyndiramirez! These 💐 were created just for her 💕💕💕

Market day with some my favorite boys 💐🐶💕 also kinda digging the high ponytail - maybe it’s time to swap out my topknot habit 🤔

Brought a little Spring refresh to our friends @bhldn 🌸💐🌼🌷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. gosh it feels great to be home!!

Been a little MIA on here because the event / floral world can be tough stuff sometimes! To be clear - we LOVE our jobs and what we do and are beyond privileged to get to do this work - but it is important to recognize that this work is difficult, dirty, sweaty and at times stressful. The work of creating beautiful things / experiences etc can often times be anything but outwardly beautiful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
What I love more than anything though is how open and committed our team is to learning on the job when experiences are new, how willing our freelancers and full timers are to listen to, take in and adjust from feedback and how resilient we all are when shit gets tough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Working out in Palm Springs / “Coachella” the past several days can sound really cool - and its not that its not cool - it is a great in many ways, but we are here to work - not to play. We had a string of almost 18-24 hour days in order to get the job done and that is never ever the ideal, nor the expectation - but this business is full of unexpected surprises. Many things can go wrong, whether its environmental or a human error or just miscommunication and the important thing I’ve learned is to remember that “this too shall pass” and to not to forget to assume the best of those around me - even if I feel let down by someone - this goes not just for me but for my whole team. I never ever want my team to have to miss an hour of necessary sleep, or forfeit work life balance or self care to get the job done - but when things go wrong and we all have to rush to stop the bleeding to make sure we deliver on and keep our commitments to our clients - my gals (and guys) show up ready to get the job done. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I am seriously blown away by how lucky I am to be surrounded by such fierce humans that are so committed to their craft. Okay thats all for now. We will post stories of the cool shit we made out in CA soon. We hope you love it - it was hard but we did it and we feel so grateful to have risen to the occasion.

Pink. Pool. Process.

I’m more of the celebrate my birth MONTH kind of gal, anyone else? Still dreaming about this perfect spring day in our new backyard with soooo many of my favorite humans. Happy hump day everyone 😝💐😘

The moment I laid eyes on this pink pool I knew I had to fill it with flowers. Thing is - this pool can hold 50,000 GALLONS of water ... so we didn’t exactly “fill it” but the point is - I had this idea and thanks to some extremely kind and talented people lending their time, efforts and resources - a group of us came together and made space to play and create something just because we could and just because we wanted to. More to come about this project and some of the purpose that will be coming from it but first - here’s a peek at this pretty pink babe and a massive thank you to all the humans that came out to create some magic together. 💐💐💐💐💐
