Here in Eugene we were so excited to again host the US Track and Field Olympic Trials at historic Hayward Field. Dandelions created the award bouquets for each athlete who will travel to London as an Olympian. A total of 120 athletes were awarded and we worked with the committees color scheme to create a yellow and green bouquet rich in textures. Spider mums, green trick dianthus, solid aster, green chyrsanthemums and yellow chrysanthemums were accented with bear grass and river grass. With world records and meet records set it was an exciting week of track and field to watch. Congratulations Olympians!
We also designed centerpieces and arrangements for British Petroleum’s hospitality suite on site at Hayward Field and at their hotel. It was great that their logo colors happened to match perfectly with our own UO! We used long-lasting tropicals to combat the outdoor venue and 14 day length of the event. What a fun job we have!
