Share Your Creativity With Local & Seasonal Blooms. Accepting Applications Now!

Rayne Grace Hoke of Flora’s Muse created an impressive and simply gorgeous installation to celebrate #americanflowersweek.

Since 2016, Slow Flowers has commissioned more than 20 Floral Fashions for American Flowers Week. This beautiful Botanical Couture Collection resonates with flower and garden lovers everywhere, elevating flowers from a commodity to couture.

Inspired by the intentionality of the Botanical Couture Collection, Slow Flowers invites YOU to participate in a similar floral art project: a Botanical Installation Series for American Flowers Week.

Lisa Waud, our membership manager, shares her enthusiasm for Botanical Floral Art Installations and invites you to join her in celebrating American Flowers Week.

We’re soliciting proposals from farmer-florist creative teams who are eager to showcase their talents and their flowers with a public installation on display during American Flowers Week (June 28-July 4).

Everyone is welcome to participate in American Flowers Week! To be featured in our online publications and social media channels, however, you must be an active Slow Flowers member. Consideration will be made for geographic diversity, and for botanical elements not previously featured.
