Unconditional LoveBy Fresh Floral Creations: Bruno Duarte

Award winning designer, Bruno Duarte of Fresh Floral Creations tells us that “when I thought of [the 2019]  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 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.”

Festa Na Aldeia By Designs by JP: JP deMelo

As we celebrate the importance of family this year, it was my intention to pay homage to my Portuguese heritage and display a fresh flower carpet created with over 1000 blooms, fresh moss, and a design that incorporates both tradition and modernity.
