February means Valentines.  “Be Mine, Valentine” was written in red aluminum wire with bright gloriousa lilies.

March Korean Literary LegacyMarch means the Philadelphia Flower Show.  Last year’s theme was “Articulture“.  The central feature was created by AIFD.  This towering design was a tribute to Korea’s Literary Legacy.

April Memphis Milano ShowMemphis Milano was the name of the 2014 Memphis Flower Show.  It is also the name of a 1980 Italian furniture movement which were interpreted by the designers.  The colorful shelf in the back of the photo inspired this terrific design!
