Convention 2018

The Annual Iowa Florists’ Association Convention came and went on a sultry and sticky weekend in September. Amidst the hot day, there was lots of flower collaborating, networking, wonderful and creative designs by our lovely Tina Davis! Since pictures are worth a thousands words, we’ll just let ya’ll see for yourselves that Floral Designers are tough, and it takes way more than a warm day to keep us from doing what we love, right?

Our wonderful and talented Designer Tina Davis of Illinois made the trek to Iowa to demonstrate the art of adding personal touches to sympathy designs.

A tribute to our Hawkeye Country – a bit hit!
