Festival of Flowers 2021 People’s Choice Winner is A Bloom Garden Center!!
The Festival of Flowers - LoDa Style was a Magnificent 2 days!!! The weather was ideal for a wonderful stroll though the flowers! Eight teams submitted designs that were brilliant!
The winning design created by A Bloom Garden Center was a Sea Turtle. To encourage awareness of sharing the beach, A Bloom Garden Center highlighted the plight of the Sea Turtle. Sea turtle nesting preservation along our Alabama Gulf Coast beaches is a distinctive contribution of our area. Their Sea Turtle was made of moss and was highlighted with mixtures of succulents, greenery and fresh flower blooms.
Techniques4Flowers would like to thank Providence Hospital Foundation for presenting the Festival of Flowers – LoDa Style. It gave us a quick reminder of the benefits of flowers. Thanks to the designers for sharing their talent! Also, our thanks to their sponsors, contributors, and vendors. We look forward to returning to the Providence Campus for our traditional Festival of Flowers in 2022.
The Entrance is being prepared to amazing creations!!
Mobile is privileged to have the Festival of Flowers, March 12 & 13, presented as a fundraiser for Providence Hospital Foundation. Each year, artists in design, floral, plants, and other mediums offer creations with flowers.
As with everything in 2021, this year is different. To help the Downtown businesses, the Event will be held in Cathedral Square instead of the Providence Campus. This year’s theme is “All Creatures Great and Small”. Teams will produce living sculptures of their interpretation of the theme. Teams will compete for the People’s Choice Award. The winner will be announced March 13th at 8:00 p.m.
Proceeds of the 2021 Festival of Flowers LoDa Style will be used to purchase Critical Care Monitors for the Cardiac Care Unit at Providence Hospital.
The designs for Mobile Porch Parade are spectacular and unique!
Mobile started Mardi Gras celebrations in the United States in 1703. This is only one of creative selections that are found around Mobile to celebrate Mardi Gras!! When the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled Mardi Gras in Mobile for 2021, Mobile Porch Parade was formed to keep Mardi Gras alive this year. Revelers began to decorate their home porches as floats. Throughout the city, more and more decorations are celebrating Mardi Gras. The Spirit of Mardi Gras can not be smothered!
Techniques4Flowers.com would like to Thank the creators, organizers and all who participated to keep our Mardi Gras Spirit alive. Check out mobileporchparade.com for more details. Visit #mobilemask for more posts and videos.
HAPPY MARDI GRAS!!!
In Mobile, we still have the Mardi Gras Spirit!
Just because we can not gather in large groups, still decorate to lift the spirits! Decorate your porch for the Porch Parades. Have food and drinks on the ready for friends. Decorate and have a Mardi Gras centerpiece on the table for refreshments.
An arrangement can last for a week. The biggest problem is making sure that the flowers are not in direct heat. During the day, when guests are not present, place the arrangement in a cool dark room. Make sure the water levels are high in the vase.
Happy Mardi Gras!
