After 8 years at Cabo Flowers and Cakes, we can’t imagine how we’d get along without Perla. She is one of our top floral designers, having risen through the ranks at Cabo Flowers and Cakes over the years. She’s an orchid lover, and a wedding lover! In fact, one of her favorite parts of her job is going to the actual weddings and helping to set up all the florals. She’s a hard worker (it’s gets hot and sweaty, pulling together all the floral arrangements for a beach wedding in Cabo!) but she never complains! She can wield a staple gun along with the best of them, and can fix a troublesome flower with tools from her every-handy toolbox!
Perla’s favorite wedding locations are Cabo del Sol golf clubhouse and the Sunset Da Mona Lisa restaurant, and her favorite part of her job is producing the floral arrangements for a wedding. She says she loves it when she delivers the wedding flowers, and everyone smiles!
Perla recently worked with a local wedding planner, Katie Thompson of Dazzle ‘Em Event Design, putting together elaborate floral decor for a beachfront wedding. “I love Perla! I love the way she takes what she does so seriously!” said Katie. “Every wedding is very important to her. For every flower order, she checks, re-checks and then checks again to make sure everything is literally perfect!”
On a personal note, Perla is also an avid soccer player. In fact, practicing her English, she sang, “I love, love soccer!” as she was being interviewed! She also loves learning English and has become much more outgoing in her second language.
Why should a client use Cabo Flowers and Cakes? “Porque somos los mejores,” Perla says. (Translation: Because they are the best!)
OK, Cabo brides, we know how it is with cakes. You’ve done your research, you’ve searched your heart (you may have even drawn sketches) and you’ve done your cake tasting. You’ve finally determined your perfect wedding cake, and you’ve submitted your fabulous ideas to us! Good job!
But, as we look over your order, we notice…something is missing! What exactly is your stunning wedding cake going to stand on? Yes, you need a cake stand!
A cake stand completes your look! A cake stand makes a 3-tier cake appear to be a 4-tier cake, or your 2-tier appear to look like a 3-tier. (You get the idea!) A cake stand keeps your cake about 6” off your beautiful linen. And a cake stand is one more decor element that you can use to add dazzle and elegance to your overall Cabo wedding. It also makes your cake easier to cut (raises it to cutting level) and looks great in pictures.
Convinced? If not, then take a look below at some of our gorgeous cake stand options that might work beautifully for your Cabo Flowers and Cakes wedding cake. Let us know your favorite! (Plus we custom design cake stands, too, if needed.)
Joel Lopez Taylor has been a member of the Cabo Flowers and Cakes family for 8 years, but it seems like longer! He has been a part of every project, and a help to every customer, since the minute he started working with us! He is a customer-service enthusiast, and said this is his favorite part of the job. “I know more about other people’s needs than my own, and I’m here to help with those needs,” he said.
We asked him a few other questions, and loved his responses so much we wanted to share them with our clients (and future clients)…
Why does Joel enjoy working at Cabo Flowers and Cakes? He answered that it helps him to grow as a person, and to mature. Thanks to his bosses, he said! (Not to toot our own horns, but we have loved watching Joel grow as an employee and become a wonderful administrator and someone we rely upon constantly.)
Joel’s favorite location for a wedding? One of our favorites, too! Cabo del Sol golf clubhouse.
Joel’s favorite flowers? It’s all about the smell! Tuberoses and Casablancas. Great choices, Joel!
His happiest moments at work? “When a person says Thank You or that their flowers are beautiful!” (He actually hears that a lot…love it!)
Let’s end this blog with his final words. Why should a client use Cabo Flowers and Cakes? He said, “Because we make beautiful things!” Simple, to the point..and true. We DO make beautiful things. Check us out for your Cabo events! Thanks, Joel!
