The Moroccan themed “40 Bandits” table designed by DC Rental, JLB Floral, and Social Scene took home the People’s Choice award as well as Most Creative, while Nora Burgan and Deema Zein of Ultimate Events Inc. won Most Innovative for their “Thumbelina: Princess in a Tulip” tabletop. The Most Difficult tabletop went to Da Vinci Floral’s “Believe” table that featured live butterflies, a live model, and thousands of flowers placed in a multitude of arrangements and floral trees.
This year’s event also took on a charitable role by partnering with Operation Starfish, a local charity that helps send children in Haiti to school. Donations received throughout the evening were enough to send 22 children to school in the fall.
