Create a Ceremony with Twelve Thirty Four Flowers

Founder and Creative Director of Twelve Thirty Four Flowers, Patricio Rivera possesses a deep connection to nature which undoubtedly shows through in all of his work. We find it most fascinating that Twelve Thirty Four best represents Rivera’s interest in the connection between human and plant life – the progression of birth, growth, reproduction, and passing on. With hosting season hot on our heels, this bonafide botanist brought a bit of his magic right here to HP Village to create a magical ceremony with MADISON and Christofle, while also sharing top tips you can use in your own space.

“Texture in flowers is very important. Pay close attention to every stem as you pair them.”
“Focus on pairing colors that go well together. I love using my Pantone App or my Flower Color Guide book designed by Darroch and Michael Putnam.”
“Dig into family history and try using flowers that remind you of someone you love. This will make the process quite meaningful.”
“I love stock for its scent. I think a lot of people typically use this flower as a filler, but I think it goes a long way on its own. There’s no other scent like it!”
“My newest obsession are artichoke hearts when blooming – they are stunning!”
