Gather Virtual Tulip Festival Hosted by Sarah Campbell - Article on Thursd (12)

This event is made possible through the support of the U.S. tulip growers, their European bulb suppliers, and funding from the European Union.

Make sure to check the Finale at the end where you’ll find lots of extra fun from Tulip Treats to Tulip Care (and a little visit from our Big Flower Fight friends, Henck and Yan).

Virtual Tulip Festival

How It All Started

Sarah and Jordan are hosting the Virtual Tulip Festival and here you can see the story of how they got to it.

 

 

Their inspiration came through a bunch of yellow tulips. It lightened the room completely and so they decided they wanted to make a lot of people this joyful. They gathered a team around them with people that give them energy and waves of laughter. A dream team.

The Dream Team
Bron, Sue, Ana & Anaïs, Michelle, and Beth were invited to a ‘zoom’ to discuss.
They were all so excited to do this and so they did it!
Gather Virtual Tulip Festival is a fact!

Bron is a floral industry leader, sharing his passion for flowers through designing, speaking, and presenting across the United States!

The moment Bron steps foot in a room, everyone is sure to notice. His warm energy and inspirational mindset create a space for this floral art to flourish. Bron lets the blooms whisper, and he listens. When there is a challenge ahead, he always rises to the occasion, with a smile on his face.

Bron lives by the simple principle, “be your best self,” and always encourages others to join him along his journey. He strives to uplift and encourages others with friendship and, of course, flowers!

Aniska Creations is a mother-daughter business born out of a love for flowers. Originally from Venezuela, Ana Vivas and Anais Vivas moved to Miami, Florida where they now operate their studio, catering to their community’s floral needs and crafting the world’s most beautiful flower crowns (if you’ve seen them, then you know what I mean)!

These two ladies radiate light and positivity that shines from miles away. When they aren’t creating fantastical floral designs, and you can find them traveling the world teaching classes in workshops (mainly taught in Spanish) focusing on the development of the Latino community.

Michelle is a blossoming breakout star. Don’t let her 5ft stature distract you (she describes herself as vertically challenged)! This entrepreneur packs a big punch. She is the mother of 2 (with one on the way), founder of a thriving floral and event design firm, venue owner, and rising starflower world.

After spending 10 years in the Engineering field, Michelle stepped in to help her sister plan and design her wedding, and her passion for flowers began to bloom.

She thrives on creating smiles, meeting new people, and bringing visions to life!

Let me tell you what, there isn’t anything that Beth can’t do! Beth O’Reilly AIFD is a multifaceted floral industry expert, with a BFA in Fine Art Sculpture. Beth’s greatest passion is to create 3-dimensional installations using flowers as her medium! Most recently, Beth won the hearts of flower lovers around the world as the fan-favorite on the new HBO Max “Full Bloom” series.

Beth has had a love of flowers for as long as she can remember, and she is driven by the opportunity to touch the lives of others by creating memories and sharing the joy of beautiful blooms.

Nature is something that can be enjoyed and appreciated by everyone and that’s what I find beautiful, creating moments of joy that are meaningful. Those moments can never be taken away.
