Earlier this week I had the wonderful pleasure of participating at this year's Canada Blooms festival in Toronto. I was scheduled to create a live floral installation based off a movie of my choosing (the festival's theme was "Let's Go To The Movies"). I chose a recent film I had watched, 'Lady Bird' (2017), as my movie pick. It took me practically the day before to decide on what I had planned to do. I knew I wanted to create a California vibe feel to the installation but how would I manage to do that with only a Volkswagen beetle and a limited budget on hand? I decided to keep it simple with a "Welcome to Sacramento, CA" sign because the main character is based from there and has this love/hate relationship with her hometown. At one hand, she hates the lack of diversity and limitations the city has to offer. She doesn't want to be living near her mother who seems to judge her every move. But on the other hand, Lady Bird adores Sacramento and misses her mother after she's moved away to New York City. What made Sacramento unique couldn't be found in the new city she was now living in.
This was the first time we were asked for this sort of arrangement and we loved doing it. Congratulations goes to Jaime and Daniel!
