Damien Overputte, the creative brain of DO-Flowers, studied at the School of Arts in Namur, Belgium, and his passion for flowers brought him to the flower industry. He worked several years with a renowned Belgian flower designer where he gained a lot of experience. And Damien is proud to show the design he had made with three varieties of spray roses from breeder United Selections, rose Speaking Blossoms, rose Pink Blossoms, and rose Tender Blossoms.



Damien’s Passion for Flowers, Plants, and Nature Is His Daily Beverage

The amazing spray roses from United Selections make his heart beat. Roses are always very close to people‘s hearts. The soft pink color and the round shape bring him over to a romantic soft world. That’s why he chooses to work them out in a crown.

A Crown With Blossoms Spray Roses

Like the rose, the crown has been another strong symbol since the dawn of time! The gods were honored with crowns, and they were offered to victorious generals. It was in the Middle Ages that crowns were an accessory with a message.

The Circle, Wheat, Flowers, and Especially Roses Express Life

Maybe people aren’t aware of all this heritage, but circles, wheat, and flowers are an integral part of our heritage. Even the wheat symbolizes the gift which can only be obtained from the gods, the essential and primordial food. The grains of wheat returned to the ground are a promise of other ears. The ear of wheat was an emblem of the ancient Egyptian god Osiris, a symbol of his death and resurrection. Working out magnificent United Selections‘ roses with high emotional value in combination with the crown shape and other added value speaks to our soul!

The circle, wheat, flowers, and especially roses express life!
