Dare to Bloom Grand Finale

As if our eternal roses weren't pretty enough… We had three challenges that our dearest finalist participants had to endure. And one of them was with our stunning fresh cut roses and tinted prestige collection. They made their floral arrangements bloom in the most beautiful way. Especially by combining a series of different colors as well as greenery to fill their floral arrangements and have an overall brilliant artistic design.

Grand Prize

We're here to tell you all about the Grand Finale that was held in Miami, the city of the sun. Our Finale was held in our partner's location Logiztik Alliance. Where the sunset, lake, and palm trees were the perfect setting, making it even more exciting for our competitors as it was an adrenaline rush for everyone! Exciting live music was played to pump up our participants' emotions, by our wonderful DJ Forastero. This floral art competition destination has been very surprising. Because as you all know, the winners from DALLAS, NYC, LA, and MIAMI, were competing for the grand prize: a trip all expenses paid to visit Naranjos and Lulu farms and to explore the magnificent city of Quito.

Finalists Dare to Bloom Grand Finale

Our Finalists Bethany from Dallas (First Choice floral), Rachel Clark from NYC (Van Vliet NY), Natieka Green from Miami (Field of flowers), and Laihla Akhtari from LA (Ecuador Op), had to go through 3 challenges. The challenges create that each design had the perfect ingredient of creativity and originality. Their designs create a romantic Christmas dinner for a couple getting engaged, hand-tied bouquets, and wearable pieces.
