Rooms of Blooms, held at the Paine Art Center and Gardens, is such a beautiful event. Being able to enjoy the Paine Art Center as well as the flowers which seemed to be matched to the paintings that hung near them to a T. The Florist’s adaptation of the canvas, as it were. The competition in the Great Hall, that the public could vote on were 7 tables set with each designer’s beautiful and all very different ideas and looks to them. Florists from around the Fox Valley did an amazing job. One of our Waupaca County Florists were featured, Cathy Spiegelberg owner/designer of Premier Petals in Weyauwega. Cathy designed the flower arrangements in the Master Bedroom at the Paine for Rooms of Blooms, and they were amazing. Kudo’s to all of the designers whose work made Rooms of Blooms amazing! Thank you one and all.
