Featuring Eddie Zaratsian         
Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Presented by the Lauritzen Gardens Guild 

Honorary Chairman: Judy Bates
Chairmen: Carla Patton-Ochsner and Kris Patton
Guild President: Carmen Smith

With his global perspective and attention to detail, Eddie Zaratsian has built an A-list portfolio through collaborations with Chanel, Neiman Marcus, Kate Spade, Valentino, and OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, as well as a long list of celebrity clientele. Named one of the top five international florists by the Financial Times, Zaratsian has built a reputation as a visionary floral artisan.

At the helm of tic-tock Couture Florals and Eddie Zaratsian Custom Florals and Lifestyle in Beverly Hills, California, his innovative, refined aesthetic results in florals, installations and products that are natural, architecturally interesting, and truly beyond compare. 

"Flowers are a feast for the soul and Eddie Zaratsian believes that everyone deserves a seat at the table." 
Great for any floral enthusiast or designer, an art lover or anyone who enjoys flowers and design, don't miss the Lauritzen Gardens Guild's annual kickoff to spring. 

Reservations will open soon.
