The Winter Olympic Bouquet of Flowers

The bouquet of green mums and hypericum berries that athletes receive instead of medals during the awarding ceremony at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver are from Just Beginnings Flowers & Margitta’s Flowers in Surrey, British Columbia. The selection process was done with 58 entries and June Strandberg’s (bouquet designer and owner) entry was the one chosen. June believes that her program where she teaches floristry to women who have left prison, to women who are recovering from addiction or who have been victims of violence earned her a contract to make the flowers for the 2010 Winter Olympics. These flowers represent Canada and British Columbia. They replace the medals that athletes received but they are as valuable as the winning medals too.

That bouquet was a way to help out those women in need but I surmise Athletes would still prefer receiving medals instead of bouquet of flowers.

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend!
Thanks for clarifying. I thought this was a strange and rather ugly bouquet.
