Award winning designer, Bruno Duarte of Fresh Floral Creations tells us that “when I thought of this year’s theme ‘A FAMILY AFFAIR’ the one thing that I constantly come back to is unconditional LOVE. Family is where we experience love for the first time. I have chosen to create a 10′ x 10′ heart structure that will be covered with steel grass woven together, symbolizing the many different kinds of families and how they are woven together as a society. The world need more love and unity.”
There will be orchids covering the heart and cascading down.

I grew up surrounded by flowers on my family’s farm in Madeira. The island off the coast of Morocco is known as the floating garden and is home to rare species of flowers from around the world. It’s here where my passion for orchids and all things floral began.
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.
