2017 Botanical Brouhaha Expert Panel

Jan 12, 2017

It is with immense gratitude that I introduce the 2017 Botanical Brouhaha Expert Panel! Each member of this panel brings a unique skill set to the table and I know you will benefit from hearing their advice over the course of the year. They serve on the panel for no other reason than to give back to the floral industry and serve fellow designers. I can’t thank them enough for the time they dedicate to the BB readers in the midst of their very busy schedules. Please feel free to send your questions for the panel to us at We will address two questions per month as we move through 2017. The panel is here to help and anxious to get started!
