3rd Annual Petals & Stems Challenge – Online voting begins Sept. 4th and continues through Sept. 10th at 11:59 pm.
If you found yourself in a warehouse surrounded by 100 varieties of flowers with the challenge to arrange something beautiful for your favorite charity while being timed and videoed, what would you do?
Petals & Stems Florist in North Dallas brings together for the third year, six local business executives from different spheres of influence in the Metroplex to create the amateur floral arrangement of their life while being timed and videoed during the process. Their work will be posted on the internet for viewer voting. Each challenger’s designated charity receives $100 for their participation, and the winning amateur bouquet merits $1,000 for that ‘designer’s’ charity.
“We are delighted to give back to the community in this way,” says Brad Weinstein, owner of Petals & Stems. “It is great seeing how competitive for a cause our challengers can be.”
Guest designers will gather August 21st to assemble their creations with a little coaching from the professional designers standing by. During the taping, contestants will have the opportunity to explain what type of design they are making and for what charity they are working.
Online voting begins Sept. 4th and continues through Sept. 10th at 11:59 pm. The contestant with the most votes wins an additional $1,000 for their designated charity. The winner will be announced Sept. 12th.
