I love a lot of the floral arrangements seen in TNG, and I was wondering if anyone knows who designed these arrangements? There is one in particular, in S3:E18 "Sins of the Father" near the beginning of the episode when the Enterprise crew is treating Klingon Commander Kern to dinner, that I love.

I've looked through all of the set designers etc. for that episode, and I have yet to find any information about the floral arrangements specifically. It would be great to find out who did the arrangements, so I could see if they've done any other work.

According to IMDB for that episode, there was no dedicated florist in the credits. The Set Decoration for that episode was done by Jim Mees.

According to the Next Generation Companion, Jim Mees was responsible for the floral arrangements in other episodes including Sub Rosa so it's not unreasonable that he did the floral arrangements in that episode.

Set decorator Jim Mees recalled having to come up with a room full of camelias a month out of their season.

    Sorry, but this doesn't answer the question asked. We know who the set decorator is, but it's pretty likely that they bought in the the centrepiece from somewhere/someone else. Also, how do you know that it didn't fall to Set Designer Richard James to sort out the floral arrangements? – Valorum Oct 26 '17 at 20:01

    According to the Next Generation Companion, Jim Mees was responsible for the floral arrangements in other episodes including Sub Rosa so it's not unreasonable that he did the floral arrangements in other episodes unless otherwise noted; however that's a guess and not really an answer. – Mark Beadles Oct 26 '17 at 20:16

    There is always a mention in the credits for guest appearances and contractors. If there was a specific person brought in they would have been reference. Floral design is one of the many things that is under the responsibility of a Set Decorator. @Valorum my answer is valid, because Jim Mees is the Set Decorator, and has done floral designs on other sets. – as.beaulieu Oct 26 '17 at 20:35

    @MarkBeadles - Now that would make an excellent basis for an answer. – Valorum Oct 26 '17 at 20:42

    @Valorum I will edit this answer to include that information, as.beaulieu can have the upvotes. – Mark Beadles Oct 26 '17 at 21:03
