THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We would like to take the opportunity to extend a very special thank you to Mel and Sari Aho and Aho Construction for their love and support to our company throughout the years. Without their trust and create freedom, we would not be able to create such fun and wonderful designs!
This year we created a giant pineapple of sunflowers that stood 7 feet tall! What a way to welcome in the festival!
Accompanying this wonderful design we created a 9 foot tall tropical structure of bamboo, heliconia, hala foliage and oncidium orchids. It’s dynamic presence really finished off the display!
Up close, you can really get a feel for the intersecting lines of foliage and flowers. It’s really fun!
As you say in Hawaii…MAHOLA NUI! (Thank you very much!)
This past week, Erik Witcraft had the wonderful opportunity to attend the prestigious nationally recognized AIFD (American Institute of Floral Designers) symposium in Kansas City, Missouri. Not only is this a chance to get inspired by some of the world greatest floral designers, but it is also a chance to get certified as a world-wide recognized master of floral design. Erik tested among 120 other applicants from around the world. He will find out if he passed the certification testing within about 4 weeks.
This table design swirls with excitement formed from a curly willow amature. Grasses, reeds, flowers and fruit complete this contemporary centerpiece design.
This tall design of twigs, bits and bamboo supported roses, orchids, calla lilies and peacock feathers!
This cylindrical design had pretty much all of the callas in Missouri in it! Roses, gloriosa lilies, and anthurium created the vibrant orange stripe through the middle!
