About

Jeff Johnson spent a lifetime in the Southern California events industry. Jeff鈥檚 grandfather owned a flower shop, his Mom owned a chain of shops, and his stepfather and brothers managed the famous Mark鈥檚 Garden鈥檚 in Los Angeles. Jeff began his career within the family businesses but quickly branched out. He spent many years as a highly sought after freelance artist, working on events such as the Academy Awards Governor鈥檚 Ball, the Grammy Awards, World Music Awards, and Disney Studio presentations. He has also serviced some of the most prestigious private residences in Aspen, Beverly Hills, Malibu, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Palm Springs and Palm Desert.

After many years of paying his dues as a freelancer, Jeff co-founded Square Root Designs, one of the premier event design companies in Southern California. He boasted a client base that included the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas; Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel; Montage Hotels in Beverly Hills, Laguna Beach and Deer Valley; the St. Regis in Monarch Beach; and several upscale corporate projects in Tokyo. Jeff鈥檚 designs have been covered by a wide range of media outlets, including shows on Bravo, HGTV, and the Style channel. His services have been contracted by several fortune 500 companies as well as many of Hollywood鈥檚 elite.

Jeff sold this business after a decade of success in order to return his wife to her beloved home and to raise his daughters in a culture rich with history and diversity. He is now thrilled to call our beautiful Nation鈥檚 capital and Chesapeake Bay area home.

Jeff launched Blue Vanda Designs in 2012 and quickly became recognized as one of the most innovative and respected designers in the DC and Baltimore areas. Inspired by the natural beauty of the East Coast, Jeff has harnessed newfound energy and a fresh design approach. Blue Vanda Designs has become the most exciting creative outlet of his long career. Jeff鈥檚 years of experience has cumulated into this venture that embodies individual client attention; intentional, personalized design; pleasant, immediate communication and thrilling delivery.

    Out of this world!

    Stunning does not even describe how amazing the florals from Blue Vanda are. Jeff has the most amazing vision and eye for design. He is so beyond great about listening to your wants and making any budget work and look incredible. Blue vanda did the florals for my bridal shower and my wedding. Both times the arrangements blew my expectations out of the water!!! The quality of the florals are quite frankly unmatched by any other florist I鈥檝e ever seen. Their arrangements are like pieces of art that I wish could last a lifetime. On top of all of this Jeff, the owner, has such a kind heart and is an all around amazing person. I felt so lucky to have him as my wedding florist and I know he will absolutely getting calls from us for events in the future!! I absolutely cannot recommend him enough!!!
