The Village Garden Club of La Jolla will present its annual “Meet the Masters” event on Thursday, March 6, at 1:30pm. Los Angeles-based Eddie Zaratsian, this year’s featured speaker, will demonstrate floral design and discuss his aesthetic approach to floral arrangement and lifestyle. This contemporary signature style is evidenced by his newly-formed collaboration with Restoration Hardware and the establishment of floral boutiques in its flagship stores.  Zaratsian’s clients include premier names in fashion, such as Chanel, Valentino, Jo Malone, Kate Spade, and Neiman Marcus. His design flair and personal affability have made him a favorite of many well-known Hollywood names.

The program will be held in the auditorium of The Scripps Research Institute at 10640 John J. Hopkins Drive, San Diego.  Following the presentation there will be a reception with refreshments.  Mr. Zaratsian will also be signing his new book, Eddie Zaratsian – Custom Florals and Lifestyle.
