Derby Day Flowers | Lymphoma Research Foundation Flower Donation | Chicago Event Florist

derby day centerpieces

Every May, we donate flowers to the Derby Day Event held by the Lymphoma Research Foundation. Last year we did the very traditional Southern-inspired mint julep vases filled with red roses. This year I wanted to so something more wild and interesting but still very “Derby” in feel. So I designed “prize ribbons” with the logo on them which were attached to each of the ten small pieces and the larger showpiece. I used a variety of flowers that look like they’d grow outside of the race track and of course I had to include “horsetail” and roses (since it is basically a race for the roses)… and I LOVE how they turned out. We are happy to use our talents for such a great cause and I am glad that our past bride Mandy contacted me to do this event for the Foundation.
