Yes We Did! We Came Back to Win Arteflorando - the Competition in Leverano

My inspiration comes from nature. Every time I put flower and any kind of natural element together it feels special. It feels like flowers have returned where they belong - home.

Yes We Did! We Came Back to Win Arteflorando - the Competition in Leverano -  on Thursd

Every year in Leverano, Italy, there's a huge flower event called Leverano in Fiore. At the same time, Ivan Bergh organizes Arteflorando, an international floral competition. This year was a massive success with the city filled with people admiring the flowers.

I'm Sanita Cipruse, a graduate of a Florist school in Latvia called A-Ž. A nature lover, I find joy in creativity, especially in competitions like Arteflorando in Leverano.

We Came Back to Win Arteflorando in Leverano

I love challenging myself through competitions. They allow me to be extra creative and experiment with new ideas. Preparation starts well in advance, and I bring my daughter Katrina along as my team member, travel companion, and moral support. Last year, she joked that we would return to win first place — and here we are!

 

 

The Theme of Arteflorando

This year's theme was "There is always a light at the end of the tunnel." Life's ups and downs inspired my work, symbolizing light, hope, and love. I am deeply grateful for the support I received, especially for my flowers, which felt like a Christmas morning surprise.

Flowers and Me

I started studying flower arranging 10 years ago and I discovered that there is an unspoken connection in flowers. Flowers are a part of our daily lives and a part of any special occasion. Six years ago I decided to take a leap of faith and opened a small flower shop in the center of Riga. It is a very special place. My team is myself and the three most wonderful cats called - Rose, Lilly, and Morics Liepins.

Flowers are a little bit of art, inspiration, and support for all of us. I trust my flowers, it is them, who usually guide me in the right direction. They tell me what goes with what and where. I can safely say that is my signature style - trust the flowers. Flowers and flower arranging is my passion. It is food to my soul. My inspiration comes from nature. Every time I put flowers and any kind of natural element together it feels special. It feels like flowers have returned where they belong — home.
