Professional Florists – Floral Alley

2020: Birds of A Feather

This year’s Canada Blooms theme  “Birds Of A Feather” was designed to focus on similarities, similarities between people, nature, animals (birds in particular),  plants and insects. We invited designers to consider this while creating their design or they could go a different direction and explore the imagery related to birds and feathers.

Canada Blooms Floral Alley is a celebration of Ontario top floral artists. Their displays at the festival are truly inspirational.

Displays are designed to last 10 days and floral material will be refreshed throughout the festival, creating a new look. These stunning displays showcase just what professional florists can do.

Fresh Floral Creations

Arranged by: Bruno Duarte

My approach to floral design is both sculptural and emotional, blending organic materials and found objects together to create works of art. My floral studio is often mistaken for an art gallery, where weekly window displays are created to showcase floral artistry.
