Last month, we mentioned how Youngsong Martin from Wildflower Linen was a Keynote Speaker for the Kotra Global Career Vision 2013 Fair in Seoul, Korea. The Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) last month held KOTRA Global Career Vision 2013, a fair for job seekers and entrepreneurs attended by 150 companies, including 20 foreign invested companies.
Here’s are some images of that great experience!
Youngsong sat with a list of top professionals including Park Sung-IK who was the former Zambia-Chairman, Chairman Chang Young and Become.com Board Chairman Michael Yang.
Youngsong Martin gave one on one question and answer sessions with the attendees of the job fair. If you haven’t already heard, Wildfower Linen has a huge international following, every where from Canada down to Mexico to Asia, Europe and Australia.
The event was successful with thousands in attendance including South Korea’s President-Elect Park Geun-hye!

Last year, Hollywood gave us one of the most beautiful and momentous weddings ever on film; I’m of course talking about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 wedding of Bella and Edward. Last night, Hollywood decorated yet another beautiful celebrity wedding but this time on primetime television!
ABC’s hit show, Grey’s Anatomy, showed a sneak peak of the wedding of Bailey and Ben in the last 10 minutes of the show. Wildflower Linen couldn’t be more thrilled to have been chosen as the designer wedding table linen of choice for the wedding decor. More of this lovely wedding will be seen when new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy returns on January 10, 2013.
[Grey's showrunner] Shonda [Rhimes] and set decorators wanted a winter wonderland wedding so silver and whites were the obvious choice!

Here’s an excerpt from the interview: warning - spoiler alerts!
Bailey was put in a familiar position during Thursday’s midseason finale of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy when Richard’s wife, Adele (Loretta Devine), was brought into the ER just as she was inching out the door for her nuptials with Ben.
For the doc, the decision to stay with the Chief’s (James Pickens Jr.) wife during her time of need was justified given the urgency, but it still left Ben standing at the altar and brought up memories of why Bailey’s first marriage to Tucker failed to work.
Don’t forget to watch the return of Grey’s Anatomy on January 13, 2013 to see more of the wedding! Missed the show last night? You can watch the full episodes from the entire season here!

It is finally here; the finale that millions of fans have been waiting for. We have lined up at theaters for a midnight showing while tickets for Friday and Saturday shows have already been sold out across the country. We, of course, are referring to the final chapter of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2! Twi-hards like us at Wildflower Linen are finding this evening bittersweet; we can’t wait to see the movie but are so sad the entire saga is finally ending!
Earlier this week, our friends at Summit Entertainment had the most successful black carpet World Premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 than any of the previous movies! The premiere and afterparty took place at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles.
Fans gathered for days to see their favorite actors who were dressed to the nines for this event! Here are some photos from the black carpet!
Inside Summit Entertainment’s Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 Premiere Party, the theme of the event showcased scenes from the previous movies including: an icebar representing the 3rd installment of the series with the blistering snow mountains, paraphernalia from the wedding in Breaking Dawn Part 1 including Bella’s wedding dress and shoes and of course a replica of the famous wedding scene where we again can’t help but to mention our Lilypad Moss Table Linen Collection stealing the show at Bella and Edwards Reception!

If you’re bored of the same old looks for the holidays this year and want to do something different, Wildflower Linen has some great ideas for your holiday party or event. We recently showcased some of these holiday tablescapes at the Los Angeles Convention Center that were viewed by over 1,000 people who came and visited our displays!
Here is a look at the 3 distinct tablescapes up close from their inspiration boards to the finished products at the expo…
The Royal Holiday Table consisted of vibrant red and rich gold tones to create an intricate and ornate setting. The inspiration came from pure beauty of the Byzantine Empire and Russian Orthodox Church.

NEW YORK HOLIDAY
The next holiday look was called New York Holiday with its theme and inspiration vibing from the “Roaring 20′s”. This was a classy and elegant time period but filled with fun and life. Rich Golds, whites and ambers captured the era.

If you thought Youngsong Martin is a hit in the United States, it turns out she is even larger than life Internationally! For the past 2 weeks, Youngsong, owner and principal designer of Wildflower Linen, has been traveling around Asia to promote being filmed for the highly watched television show, “Age of Global Success” which just aired last week on KBS (Korean Broadcasting Station). KBS is the biggest out of the four major South Korean television networks, similar to ABC, NBC and CBS in the USA. Millions have tuned in and continue to watch the episode online which focuses on Youngsong’s day to day life as a successful business owner and mentor.
While in Korea, Youngsong had a meet and greet at the luxurious Lotte Hotel as well as stopping by other renowned hotels in the area. She is no stranger to the international scene or Lotte Hotel in Korea as she is the Wedding Marketing Consultant for Lotte Hotels, helping to design Wedding Packages for their hotels as well as facilitate their Annual Wedding Show Event. She also made trips to Shanghai and other parts of Asia.
Here are some samples of the past Annual Wedding Show Event Youngsong designed for Lotte Hotel. Weddings in the Korean Culture include the ceremony and reception in the same area with elaborate details and designs.
Although almost the entire show is in Korean, you don’t need to speak or understand Korean to see how talented and amazing Youngsong is; whether it’s a daily day of operations at Wildflower Linen, designing for various upcoming events, guest speaking at FIDM or attending Hollywood events!
HERE is the link to see the full episode. If you speak Korean or have always wanted to see a glimpse of how Youngsong thinks and works, this is truly a documentary not to be missed.

I began Wildflower Linen in 2001 after a career in fashion design. In that world, one goes to a lot of events and it seemed that although textiles are very important to that industry, that so much more could be done with the most important (and abundant) elements in the room -- tables and chairs. So, I literally brought all my ideas to the proverbial table and haven't looked back.
