Floral Fantasy Comes To Life

Floral.today had such a wonderful time at the Great Lakes Floral Expo this past weekend presented by the Michigan Floral Association.

Thank you to Michigan Floral Association and Conference Chairman Brian Bak for presenting “FLORAL FANTASY – Seek • Explore • Discover” this year. From stage shows to contests this year brought out some amazing designing and sparks of excitement that the industry is always looking for and thrives off.

Congratulations to Brian Bak and the conference board on such a successful year, we look forward to “Together We Bloom”, GLFE, March 4, 5, 6, 2016 presented by Kevin Adamo.

For all those that missed this years expo it was amazing. Unfortunately do to technical difficulties we didn’t get photo’s ourselves but a bunch of our followers and friends have shared their photo’s with floral.today so we can bring just a tiny bit of the experience to you.

Floral.today gladly chaired the awards banquet and tablescape contest this year and want to thank all those that participated. Big thanks to our sponsors Syndicate Sales and Illinois Willows for the great containers and product along with all the volunteers that had a hand in this years “Night of Fantasy” Banquet.
