Awards & Recognition at Atlanta Orchid Society Show 2017

Terry Furuta Designs won three Blue Ribbons (!!!) and the Peoples' Choice Award AND the Best Orchids in Use Award at the Atlanta Orchid Society show March 10th through 12th, 2017. Held this year at the Atlanta Botanical Garden in Midtown, the show featured more than 10 individually designed exhibits displaying many unusual and rare species and hybrids. The show was juried by the American Orchid Society.

Blue Ribbon AND People's Choice award winner incorporates mosses, ferns, orchids, dried wood, fabric, light and other design elements into a 10 foot display.

Terry is also a leading regional expert in ikebana design, a floral art form where nature and humanity are brought together in such a way that the observer can appreciate things in nature that had previously seemed insignificant.

But there is nothing insignificant about this fabulous, award-winning design, which captured two Blue Ribbons for Terry Furuta Designs.

This arrangement puts orchids on display with driftwood, in combination suggesting many other forms, both real and imagined, at the Atlanta Orchid Society show 2017.

With many thanks to those who assisted with display set-up. Without you these awards would not be possible - it's easy to see how intricate the building of these exhibits can become.
