Flowers for Mama: Tom Bercu, Floral Art Design Flower-filled 'Dear Mama' Gala

Tasked with creating a floral wonderland for the VH1 Mother’s Day TV special "Dear Mama,” the team of Tom Bercu Presents and Floral Art worked to reach the client’s objective of rivaling the Macy’s Flower Show.

Using more than 65,000 fresh roses in addition to live orchids, hydrangeas, mosses and more, the team turned the event site—historic St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Manhattan—into a celebration of mothers who have worked hard and made substantial sacrifices to create opportunities for their children.

The design won "Best Floral" in the 2017 Gala Awards from Special Events magazine.
