Opportunity To Host Celebrity Floral Artist

Winter Park FloristThis year our city of Winter Park celebrates the 125th anniversary of its incorporation as a town (1887- 2012).

In honor of this momentous, once in a lifetime occasion, we have the exclusive opportunity to host celebrity floral artist, author, and TV personality, Jeff Leatham, brought to our city by Purple Label Events who is donating its services.

Jeff Leatham is known world-wide for his floral installations that are often compared to contemporary art.  Leatham’s floral design clientele is as impressive as his work, including Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, and His Holiness, the Dalai Lama.  Mr. Leatham would create a large scale uniquely Winter Park floral display in Central Park December 27- 28 for all to enjoy.

If you have an interest in sponsoring or being a patron of this exciting event, please contact Patrick Chapin, President/CEO of the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce, at 407-644-8281 orpchapin@winterpark.org to receive more information.
