Canada Blooms Press Coverage 2017

Canada Blooms 2017 was held from March 10-19th at the CNE grounds. Though I’ve worked as a florist for over 8 years in the past, I had never been, so I got a press pass this year and covered the event for Canadian Florist Magazine.

It was an awesome event filled with floral and garden designs from vendors who travelled to the show from all across Canada. This year’s theme was “Oh! Canada” in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Canada’s founding.

I got a chance to interview some show attendees, designers, and chat with gardeners and show workers. I’ll link to my article when it’s available, but in the mean time, I wanted to share a few of my photos from the event.
