The 2nd annual American Flowers Week is a wrap, folks! So many of you participated this year and we’ve calculated a 250% increase in social media engagement over 2015. That’s seriously impressive!
Later this week I’ll post more on our “American Flowers Week by the Numbers,” but for today, I want to announce our winners and thank our sponsors.
We noted more than 1,080 #americanflowersweek posts on Instagram and that’s not counting shares and reposts! A total of 111 of you designed and posted American Flowers Week bouquets for our “50 States of American Flowers” gallery. Not every state was represented, but flower farmers and floral designers from 33 states did participate — that’s pretty awesome!
