2016 Tablescape Contest Voting

Open House Collective Tablescape Contest


Our collaborative flower wall contest last year was a big hit among our customers and employees, so we thought we would take the same collaborative concept but apply it to tablescapes this year! So here after our National Open House, we have below 16 beautiful tablescapes for you to view and vote on.

Each year many of our amazing vendors come through with generous donations that help make this day possible, in particular Naniwa (Japanese flowers), Alexandra Farms (garden roses), Greenrose (Ecuadorian roses), Agronatura (Ecuadorian roses), HOSA (spray roses and dianthus), Agriroses (Ecuadorian roses and garden roses), and XACT (garden roses). So thank you to those of you who donated flowers to all of our locations – we greatly appreciate your support!
