As an event design firm with a focus in florals and branding, we use flowers for almost every event we design. Our events team and design team work hand-in-hand to order flowers, create arrangements and bring our clients' visions to life.
B Floral is located just one short block walk from the Flower Market on 28th street, so we never have to go very far to secure the flowers for our events. Our design team is in constant contact with floral vendors at the Flower Market to ensure we procure our clients the freshest and most vibrant flowers.
A couple of months ago one of our favorite floral vendors, FleuraMetz reached out and invited part of our team to come to Holland to tour the FleuraMetz facility, attend two well known floral trades hows and to meet several growers. To be able to see where our flowers actually come from was a dream come true!
On November 5th our team landed in Holland and were picked up by Kaas at FleuraMetz. He took us directly to the The Aalsmeer Flower Auction. The Aalsmeer Flower Auction is the largest floral auction in the world! Here, we toured the facility, watched the floral auction in real time, and witnessed how the flowers are bought, packaged and shipped. To think that the flowers we buy in the market every day have to go through so many steps to get to us was very eye-opening!
