Nov. 9, 2018 – West Bend, WI – The 6th annual Bloomin’ Holidays event kicked off at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend with the Bloomin’ Best of Show Awards handed out Thursday night.
The event featured 25 floral arrangements. “We were looking for creativity and this was a hard decision,” said Eve with Roots and Branches. Event sponsor Allan Kieckhafer had a front-row seat at the awards.
The Best in Show, was awarded to Michael Alt from Alt’s in Milwaukee.
“The inspiration for my floral design is a tradition of foraging botanicals that my father and I do every year during the fall and winter season. Our favorite treat is finding abandoned bird nests while we look for certain species of flowers. Each one tells a story and reminds me of how lucky we are that we can escape the cold weather inside a heated home while other animals have to migrate to survive.”
Second place went to Krista Roskopf from Bank of Flowers in Menomonee Falls.
Third place went to Jess Hartman and Cindy Kopecky from The Flower Source in Germantown.
