Designer Cut Flowers, the Miami based importer of premium exotic flowers from Holland and Guatemala, hosted an event in New York City to introduce their flower portfolio to floral designers and event planners. The event themed Passion, Petals, and Purpose was held at atelier Maison Gerard.

͞"These wonderful Cymbidium orchids have been four years in the making. The brilliantly colored Cymbidiums and Birds of Paradise were ready for their moment to shine," said Marta Maria Garcia, General Manager/Owner of DCF.

Shine they did with the help of the design team headed by Rene Hofstede of Mille Fiori. His vessels and design were the perfect design piece to illustrate the new movement, Tropical Nouveau. "These flowers were easy to work with", said Hofstede. They were lush, colorful and the quality was outstanding," he added.

"Tropical flowers, often sleek and graphic, are perfect with modern décor. They are the flowers du jour for many stylish people. The flowers are usually long lasting and easy to work with for our students. They are standouts in many of our arrangements," adds Eileen W. Johnson, author of Tropical Flowers (Gibbs Smith) and Founder and Creative Director, FlowerSchool New York.

Based on research by Prince and Prince, Garcia says the demand for cut tropical flowers in the U.S. is on the uptick. "Consumer sales of tropical cut flowers are projected to exceed half a billion dollars in 2018 in key markets such as New York," she added.

Throughout the event, guests had the opportunity to speak with the company owners and growers, Jan Valstar based in Holland and Jose Gonzalez who is based in Guatemala.
