thank you to everyone who attended flower power in 2019
Thank you to everyone who attended a sold-out Flower Power on May 15 and 16. The largest fundraiser for Tower Grove Park, Flower Power supports important activities, such as the care and maintenance of the Park’s trees, shrubs, flower beds and green space.
Tower Grove Park welcomed guest presenters, Michael and Darroch Putnam from New York City.
New York fashion world's cult floral designers, Putnam & Putnam have been featured in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Martha Stewart Living, Town & Country, W Magazine and Elle Décor. They have collaborated with Bergdorf Goodman, Dior, Cartier, The Wall Street Journal, Adam Lippes, Jason Wu, and Brandon Maxwell.
Michael and Darroch founded their floristry studio in 2014 and quickly became New York City's go-to florists for fashion shows, weddings, installations, parties, and editorial shoots. Clients have compared their work to still-life paintings for their ability to express colors in unconventionally elegant palettes. Their first book, Flower Color Guide (Phaidon) is the ultimate color-by-color flower reference guide.
