Yesterday evening, I had a chance to stop by Buckhead Village District to check out their flower festival! You guys know I absolutely LOVE flowers, they put me in such a great mood! All the pretty blooms were to celebrate spring in Atlanta. I got to experience immersive floral installations by visionary artists Carlos Franqui of Floratorium. I got to chat with him for a bit about his vision and he said he loves working with silk and live botanicals and creating masterpieces mainly eye-catching installations for shop exteriors.
Based in NYC but works all over the world, Franqui has created Bodacious Blooms for Tom Ford and Versace store fronts and so many more! He says once he installs and transform the larger-than-life installations for businesses, they last a lifetime. I was definitely “wowed” by his work and he is truly talented! All the floral fun takes place April 28th to May 1st at Buckhead Village. Stop by to see all the beauty and this makes for a great Feel Good Friday! More pics inside…
