This week some of us shall be lucky enough to go and visit our flowers' beautiful home town, Amsterdam - it's time for the annual Horti Fair exhibition, the biggest trade fair in the field showing the latest and wackiest in the world of flowers! Each year different members of our design team get to go and check out the up and coming new astonishing varieties of flowers that are bred, not to mention an exciting preview of what's in and what's out in next year's trends for floral and interior design.
One of the most fascinating part of this fair though, is the Innovation Award. With different categories including new plants, technology and services, the shortlisted candidates are pretty awe-inspiring indeed. My favourite of the bunch must be the FlowerBagVase (Very useful!) and the first ever black flower - Anthurium Black Queen (Jaw-droppingly stunning). The rest of the shortlist can be found on their website too - see what you think?
While in Amsterdam we'll also be visiting our growers too and talk about some great ideas for the upcoming special occasions of next year - too early? Not if we are wanting some rest time in between the busy times! No doubt the trip will leave our design team with plenty of ideas for trendy bouquets to keep us ahead of fashion next year, so stay tuned for our latest bouquets on offer!
