winner badgeWe are pleased to announce that Lori (our lead designer) won a design competition recently organized by “Flower Chat”, an online community of floral professionals.

In this competion, participants were asked to present a creative way of arranging one dozen roses.  Based on the community votes, twelve winners were chosen, and Lori’s design was one of the winners (they didn’t rank the 12 winners).

The idea of this competition is to showcase we professional florists’ ability to design a one-dozen rose arrangement that differs from the traditional design (the one in a Spring vase with Baby’s Breath).

Lori’s piece, shown below, cosists of one dozen roses and bamboo poles as main components.  It received high marks from many distinguished designers in Flower Chat.

You can read their comments by visiting the actual gallery (simply click on the picture below).  Our alias in Flower Chat community is “goldfish.”

We also encourage you to take a look at the other 11 winners’ masterpieces!  Some of them are very creative or even a little bit weird… :)


P.S. The competition got very intense.  In fact an accusation was made about a conspiracy and unethical solicition of votes.  A florist accused of being a cheater vigorously defended his action.

Read their fascinating exchanges here (1, 2, 3, 4).  LOL

Whew!  We are just glad that the dispute didn’t go as far as endless re-counting and lawsuits!  :)

    Congratulations!!!! Your rose design is absolutely magnificent. I love the motion of the design. What a unique and zen like way to arrange a dozen roses. I could sit and stare at it all day with amazement and tranquility.
