Suntory Flowers, Tu Bloom stun at Grammy Awards
Miley Cyrus wasn’t the only one who got her “Flowers” for Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performer at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday. The entire red carpet was in flower, thanks to botanical artist Tu Bloom and his design team.
2024 was the fifth year Suntory Flowers partnered with Bloom. New this year were BluOcean chrysanthemums from Suntory’s Florigene division in South America. Each year, Bloom uses Florigene’s vivid Purple Moon carnations, which have an outstanding vase life.
Planter bases were filled with Senetti Blue Bicolor Improved plants grown locally by Armstrong Growers. It was an outstanding, uniform crop!
Bloom also incorporated Wave petunias from PanAmerican Seed, showing how bedding plants can be incoporated into floral arrangements.
More than 26 large arrangements were made for the red carpet, plus smaller, tighter bouquets for other event areas. Red roses tied the blues and purples to the red carpet.
