The Art of Floristry Simplified, with Deelux Florista's Diana Diaz

At this week’s morning meeting, members were treated to a beautiful presentation by Diana Diaz of Deelux Florista & Events.  We only wish we could have smelled the arrangements from her photos—they were stunning!  

Several members have already ordered flowers through Diana, and their experiences have all been 5-star.  Not only are the arrangements incredibly fresh and thoughtful for the occasion, but the sender receives a photo of the delivered masterpiece, which is something that which is something that large corporations don’t usually provide.  Diana also takes same-day orders, which is also something that can only be found in a smaller boutique business, with an owner who cares about the product.

For your convenience, Deelux also now offers House Accounts, which allows frequent clients to pay for all orders together at the end of each month.  

Aside from floral arrangements ordered for loved ones, Diana also accommodates large orders for weddings, and even corporate events.  She can create works of art to fit any budget, and shared with the group a challenge she once faced, when a bride’s floral budget was a fraction of the typical wedding’s floral budget.  She handled it like a pro, resulting in one very happy bride (a wedding MUST!)

As we all know, great business owners work with great business owners, and Diana is no exception—working closely with a talented pastry chef, Diana is able to coordinate packages for her arrangements, that even include treats like chocolate-covered strawberries!

This presentation was scheduled with one of Diana’s busiest holidays in mind, Mother’s Day!  And, at this time, she is still accepting orders for the big day.  Place yours as soon as possible, and remember that all EAOC members get 15% off their arrangements!  This is NOT an offer that you will want to wait on.  Order today!

Please contact Diana to place your order at 949-491-5660 or https://deeluxfloristaevents.com/.  At this time, Diana is still taking orders for Mother's Day, so please hurry!

What People are Saying

In the past 42 years I have received many good leads that have become good clients.  Many of them are still clients of the firm I am with today (This represented 50% of the clients that I merged into the new firm).  I have used many past and current members for a reliable source of good and reputable suppliers for both business and personal needs, including several members that helped me make profitable investments over the years.

Hal Grimshaw, Belden Hiramoto Liu & Co., LLP

I joined EAOC because Phil Kintz asked me. At the time the cost and early meeting time was a concern. The first six months of membership I received and extra $6000 in volume.

Gary Gregg, Creating With Glass

I have been a member for many years in several different classifications. EAOC has always provided me with a steady flow of leads. However the biggest benefit I’ve received has been “outside” of the core purpose of leads. A past member John Valentine, mentioned to me that he had heard about some industrial land for sale in Costa Mesa. I ended up buying it, building a warehouse and running my business at the time (South Coast Stationers) there for about thirty years. It was an excellent investment.

Pete Sloan,

A lead from Past member Bob Hardman eight years ago resulted in $15,000 of business. A lead from Mel Smith eight years ago resulted in $25,000 of business. Benefits of membership include direct business from other members resulting in $10,000 in business and direct business with other members that resulted in excellent service and financial savings.

Carlos Salazar, Salazar Associates

I have built my entire business on leads from the EAOC. I started my association management firm in 1981 with one client EAOC. In the last thirty four years the business has grown to fourteen associations. We employ eleven full time and one part time employee. I can trace ten of my long term clients to referrals from EAOC that brings in over $500,000 annually. The network of present and passed members has had a tremendous impact on my life.

Gayle Stewart, Gayle Stewart Enterprises

EAOC has been a reliable source of steady business for me for about thirty years. Thank You EAOC!
