World Rose festival 2009

One of the fun things I have been working on over the past few months is the World Rose Festival 2009 which will be held in Vancouver, at the new Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre June 19-21, 2009. As part of the organising committee, I have been working alongside my esteemed colleagues Maureen Sullivan & Donna Hutton. Originally we were asked to design the floral design section of the show, but the ideas we presented were so well received, we have been asked to work on the design of the entire space!
We will be choosing 10-15 floral designers to showcase their designs in the floral design section of the show. We are very discerning about who we will be selecting, so if you are a fabulous innovative designer please email me at (subject line: wrfdesign)
whether you own a shop, work at a shop, or are a freelancer, anything goes!

Beautiful Bittersweet

The first signs of Autumn... Bittersweet Branches with a moss cuff
Bittersweet is a beautiful berry that is available for only a few weeks (depending on the weather) in late September. The gold outer shells crack open to reveal a deep orange/red inner berry after a day or 2. All locally grown...
Bittersweet with Hydrangea, Roses, Trachellium, Winterberry, Cymbidium Orchids, and Lilies. (All grown in B.C.)
