Pack your bags! We are about to embark on a floral design odyssey that will span the globe.
The world we live in has countless cultures. Each with its own distinct personality deeply rooted in its core essence. That essence infiltrates every aspect of what makes up that culture including religion, speech, food, clothing, architecture, theater, art and design. Since I am a floral designer we will be focusing on…floral design.
Over the next months we will visiting many exotic foreign lands through the real life travels of one of our founders Michael Valdmaa. You know those Dos Equis commercials featuring “The most interesting man in the world”, well Michael is a close runner up. He has traveled extensively and will be sharing his experiences with us. I will be following each entry of his Travel Journal with the impact of that particular culture, people, and essence on floral design and trends in how we design event décor.
We are incredibly fortunate to live in a country filled with great diversity. Cultures from around the world have added their own distinct ingredients to flavor and enrich our lives, the same is true with floral design. As American floral designers we are free to select different aspects, principles, and elements of various floral design schools from around the world and combine them to come up with truly original designs richly flavored by their cultures essence. My series will hopefully bring these design influences to life and pay tribute to the contributing cultures thereby adding more meaning your special events.
Let’s see where Michael’s travels takes us.
