You may have noticed a few of these say either the floral designer or the art piece is unknown. If you know who the credit should go to for any of these missing pieces I would appreciate you letting us know. At times it was hard to get close to the credits for each piece due to the enormous crowd at the show.

    Hi Alicia,

    Excellent shots from the show! I love how you took a separate pic of the art and collaged them – wish I’d thought of that! It was a great exhibit, thanks for capturing it so well.
