An International Fresh Floral Journey of Discovery
This March, Jet Fresh Flower Distributors sponsored the International debut of Fleurs De Villes VOYAGE – a fresh floral journey of discovery at Bal Harbour Shops, South Florida. The experience highlighted over 20 fresh floral installations, including mannequins inspired by stories from around the world. An additional collection of outdoor mannequins and other flower-enhanced public art pieces were on display around Bal Harbour Village. Other locations included mannequins at The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami, and The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort.
Connecting the world through flowers
The Fleurs de Villes VOYAGE floral series took visitors on an artistic celebration of cultures, people, and heritage of iconic global destinations – connecting the world through flowers. With a wide range of colors and textures, fresh cut flowers, preserved and dried flowers, the installations were unique and all deserved recognition. At the entrance to the Bal Harbour Village, Flowers by Lore, invoked the perfect beach vibe. Using cut orchids to create a bathing suit, preserved rose sunnies and alstroemeria beach ball.
Bravo to the Judges!
Judging this detailed floral event was not easy. The esteemed judges were Corrine Heck of Details Flowers, David Hardy of Vizcaya Miami and Miami’s very own event superstar and Bravo’s Real Housewife, Guerdy Abraira, founder of Guerdy Designs. All 3 judges honed in on their Floral and Event expertise. They selected a few creations that stood out awarding “People’s Choice” and “Most Realistic”. However, there was only one “Best in Show.” The “Best in Show” title went to Aniska Creations, whose installation took us through a journey to Venezuela. The masterpiece was created with weaved lily grass, a combination of fresh greens, Amaranthus and seeded eucalyptus. For the flag the flower professionals used dyed bunny tail in yellow, blue and red. The bunny tail flowed down the mannequin and had delicate helichrysum in white to represent the stars in the Venezuelan flag. The flower sourcing experts at Jet Fresh Flowers Distributors were able to provide potted Catteya Orchid which are the official flower of Venezuela. The unforgettable design stood out with several handmade animals.
