Last week the California Protea Association (CPA) participated in the biannual Fun N Sun Convention in Santa Barbara, California. This four day conference consisted of educational sessions, flower farm tours, amazing floral displays and a flower fair. This very popular floral expedition was our opportunity to welcome industry professionals from the US, Canada, Mexico and beyond to our world of farming, flowers and friends. A gorgeous Protea Wreath graced the entrance to the booth creating a Big CPA welcome and wonderful conversation piece. Once in the booth you were surrounded by a colorful display of many of the South African and Australian flowers and foliage our farms grow throughout California - Banksia, Protea, Leucospermum, Leucadendron, Grevillea, Berzelia, Brunia, Serruria, Flannel Flower, Calycina, Waxflower, Australian Greens and more. Trendy, in style, all the rage, something different, were the words that resonated from visitors as they passed through and admired our display!
Many thanks to Lori, Kim, Dawn, Mel, Diane, Gwen and Diana for all their hard work in creating and staffing this wonderful booth!
