We're here to tell you all about the Dare to Bloom Competition that was held in NYC: the city that never sleeps and is always looking to bloom! Our NYC competition was held in the New York Streets on Alewife Brewing Bar, 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. This floral art competition destination has been very SURPRISING because as you all know, NYC is a city that transmits happiness, boosting emotions and a RUSH to move all around the city! We want to give a huge shoutout and special thanks to Van Vliet NYC for hosting a wonderful, joyful and creative event we´ll never forget.

Stunning Artistic Design

Boost Design and Creativity

This year's floral art competition was designed to impulse and BOOST the use of preserved roses for any type of floral arrangement or decoration! Given their versatility, we think that ETERNAL ROSES have so much to offer when it comes to design and creativity, that in the end, they were the best possible choice to use for our competition! And yet again... WE WERE RIGHT!
