​​   Our floral designs are simple, elegant and modern, but our #1 goal is CUSTOMER SATISFACTION, so...  any particular design of YOUR choice would it be -traditional, rustic, vintage, beach or any other theme you chose,  will become,

our PASSION for your

special event 


      Ever since I was a little girl in Cuba I remember having a passion      for flowers/plants/fruits, and how I could "make a place pretty" with  them.  I would make Christmas trees out of coconut tree branches  covering every branch with cotton, then making the ornaments out  of whatever I could find in our backyard and tropical fruit trees.

     My passion only continued to grow into adulthood – always being  designated as the official family/friends  "decorator and designer" for  their homes, events and holiday gatherings.  In time, I became  known  amongst my family and friends as the "Cuban Martha  Stewart".

    My first wedding was my sister's who ... of course... assigned me the  "duty" of doing all her wedding flowers in 1996.  It was a beautiful  beach wedding day at Cano's in Newport Beach, CA.  I remember  staying up all night to make sure everything was just perfect.  It was...  with the FULL approval and praise from family and guests.  

    Fast forward, in 2002, same sister who worked for a very large  company (Conexant) in Irvine, CA, called on me (once again) this  time  to do the corporate  Christmas decorations ... including the  installation/decoration  of about 15 Christmas trees.  

     We had the Thanksgiving weekend  holiday to complete the entire    job.  Myself and a crew of 3  did manage  to complete the job - granted  with very little sleep in  those 4 days.  The next year the company  hired us again.  And ... V O I L A !!!

       Elegant Earth Designs was born.
