Living Future + Bouquet of Hope = Fantastic Week of Events


Living Future '09
It is so nice to finally rest after 4 straight back-to-back days of events by Social Enterprises last week May 6, 7, 8 and 9th. Living Future ’09, Cascadia‘s annual conference, was at The Nines this year. Gina Franzosa and her team created a magnificent conference program kicked off by a fascinating keynote by Janine Benyus ~ a natural sciences writer, innovation consultant, and author of six books, including Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature. Learning all about Biomimicry was something that everyone should invest in. The Nines was a beautiful venue and the conference went off without a hitch!

Bouquet of Hope 2009
On Saturday, May 9th ~ The Bouquet of Hope burst forth on the scene and left many of us with tears in our eyes after Sister Cathie Boerboom’s “stories” about the homeless and abused women she helps every day at Rose Haven (over 100 each week in Portland). The School of Oregon Ballet Theater and Aaron Meyer’s performance, amongst the MOST amazing event set by PDXGabe Designs and our Fete de le Fleur competitors ~ Swanky Tables (winner!), Starflower, Quince Flowers & Events and Anna Mara Flowers ~ was a sight to behold. Thank you Jasmine Photography for a most fabulous photo gallery of this event. HUGE KUDOS to the amazing Social Enterprises team and most particularly to Mai Tram Tran, who I now cannot live without!!!!
