Flowers for Expo West - the Natural Products Show
One of our favorite trade shows returned to Anaheim this weekend - Natural Products Expo West. The massive show utilizes the entire Anaheim Convention Center and adjacent hotels, features more than 1700 exhibitors of organic, natural and healthy products and drew more than 50,000 attendees in 2009.
The companies and groups represented are ‘green’ through and through (both in products and practices) and many utilize flowers and plants in their show displays to convey their ‘fresh’ commitment to consumers and our environment.
We thought you might like to see a few of the fresh flower selections delivered to these fine participants.
The leading provider of frozen organic foods, Amy’s Kitchen requested we create designs to match their warm, vibrant booth color palette. Their team provided us with unique vintage containers and vases and selected bright green hypericum berries, bupleurum and orchids with vermillion roses plus coordinating seasonal flowers. The style was soft and casual with a fresh garden feel.
An internationally recognized brand of plant-based remedies, Bionorica asked us feature a wildflower theme in their blue, lavender, white and green colors. Seasonal California grown flowers were the perfect choice with blossoms like delphinium, bupleurum, montecasino, campanula, hypericum berries, veronica and gerberas. Accented with grasses and submerged leaves, the arrangements were abundant in a fresh, casual style.
The leading manufacturer of organic products for cats and dogs, PetGuard featured their product colors of purple, red and black. Bright purple phalaenopsis orchid plants in black cube vases and casual table arrangements of red gerberas and hypericum with purple montecasino and matsumoto asters were selected to accent their contemporary booth decor.
Loose bunches of blooms like cherry blossoms, tulips, hydrangeas and orchids were also selected by a large number of exhibitors so we know Expo West was quite flowerful this year.
Most popular booth flower in 2010? Fresh California bupleurum for its ‘wildflower’ texture and vibrant chartreuse blossoms.It's a fantastic and versatile 'green' flower.
