I hope everyone survived, I mean, enjoyed a wonderful holiday with friends and family! While the holiday madness may be over, things are really gearing up for us on the Rose Parade end of things. Flowers grown specifically for the Rose Parade have been cultivated, packed and shipped to the United States from Colombia and Ecuador, awaiting their final destination on one of the floats. 
First stop: Miami!  
After being harvested and packed up in South America, they make their way to Miami, their first stop in the States. Trucks pick them up at the airport and they are transported to our Miami Distribution center.  
We then receive and distribute the flowers in Miami...
...and send them off to their final destination, California!
Carnations
Roses
Stay tuned for some more behind the scenes as the countdown to the Rose Parade begins! 

About The Author

Ali Dahlson - (Seattle, Washington)

Coming from a background in interior design, I'm trying my hand at flowers, and will be spending the next year learning the ins & outs of the business. I will be sharing my experiences as the new kid on the block, hoping to inspire other young, aspiring floral designers like myself. I grew up in the wholesale flower business, but hope to use my education and experience to eventually create a unique and innovative approach to floral design. Follow along for a blend of educational tid-bits, my thoughts & musings on the business, and a peek into my crazy journey into the world of flowers! #alitheflorist
