Prudence was honored to be asked to design the floral arrangements for His Holiness The Dalai Lama’s 81st Birthday Celebration at the JW Marriott Essex House Ballroom in New York City on July 7th, 2016. 150 guests joined in celebrating the life and work of His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama-the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. We chose white lilies as a symbol for peace and various yellow flowers for enlightenment and happiness.
