Nicu Bocancea from Bucharest wanted to show us a hand-tied bouquet with these sunny colors to bring joy and happiness, peace and health for Christmas. The Thursd Floral Color of the year - Scorched Earth - is a lovely match.
Nicu Bocancea made fame lately with his 50-day manifest. For the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the flower shop, that his parents started, and to give credit to them, Nicu and his team used floral arrangements to draw attention to serious irregularities in the public space. They launched a Manifest for Beauty and Normalcy on the streets of Bucharest, Romania. You can read more about it in these three articles: Manifest by Nicu Bocancea for Normalcy and Beauty

, and Manifest for Normalcy and Beauty Has Gone Viral – Part 3.
Through this Manifest, Nicu draws attention to several issues in sustainability, so in his opinion, the name Scorched Earth for the color of the year and in this way using floral designers' voice for this topic, is a great idea.
