Stop And Smell The Roses – Fleurs de Villes in Ottawa, 2018

fleurs-de-villes-2018

I had the pleasure of attending the Fleurs de Villes preview launch on April 18th at Bayshore Shopping center in Ottawa. Needless to say this post is long overdue. This was my second time visiting the display and I blogged about my previous experience here. Fleurs De Villes is a Floral Mannequin Series across Canada where local florists partner with  leading brand sponsors to create artful flower displays.  

The night was spent with sampling drinks and hor d’oeuvres and of course  gazing at the fashionable  plant-wearing mannequins. There are so many details I wished to share but I’m afraid it would make the this post quite a lengthy one. Here we go!

Kudos to all the florists that participated! My top 5 favourites were:

11. The Peacock Mannequin: Did you notice how the orchids were used to mimic the tail of the peacock?!

12. The queen of flower crowns: I just loved the rich colour of the dress. Did you know her skirt was made with 800 carnations and roses in different shades of reds and plum!! And also That hair do though!!

2. Amazonian goddess: I mean how can I not love this one! It reminds me of the strong and powerful women of Wakanda. (Black Panther) 

15. Oscar de la Renta: The whole dress was stunning. And I liked the detail of the “inner linning” of the dress.

7. Gatsby girl: I love how the ferns were used to create this minimalist but chic look.
