Space goggles on! Space boots on. Fleuramour is going on an extraordinary mission this year: we are going to travel through time!
We’re following the example of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown in the 80’s film classic “Back to the Future” and are going to visit the past, the present and the future. How does the fascinating world of flowers & plants evolve over the centuries? Which strange creatures will see the light of day? Who amongst our evolutionary friends will become extinct? How do we survive together? Or will our future be a life on a paradisiacal planet far, far away?
For this never before tried experiment, we called on the services of the 100 most creative brainiacs on Mother Earth, for a last ditch effort at saving our flora. These special envoys take you to Planet Fleuramour, where the world’s most beautiful flowers will be preserved for eternity. Our time machine is ready. The seconds are counting down. We’re just waiting on one more person. You! Embark as soon as you can before another passenger is chosen for the very last ticket to this flower paradise! Did you get yours? Quickly put on your space badge and get ready for the launch!
140,000 flowers, in all scents and colours, will be waiting for you on the other side of the cosmos…
Computer games and virtual worlds, you wouldn’t immediately link them to flowers. Still, they mix surprisingly well. Virtual Secret is a company from Geel (Antwerp) that specializes in Virtual Reality games and they are coming to Fleuramour!
This year’s theme: Back to the future, and you can take that quite literally. You can have your future predicted on Fleuramour by means of flowers! “I guide people in their personal development and bring them closer to themselves and their inner energy”, says Isabelle Blomme, lifecoach and hypnotherapist.
Holly Heider Chapple Flowers is a successful flower and event studio in Loudoun County Virginia, USA. This year Holly comes to Fleuramour with a beautiful Floral Show and she will amaze everyone with her creations. Of course she can’t do this alone. For example, Suzie Kostick, Helen Miller and Françoise Weeks will help her make this show unforgettable.
We are all increasingly concerned with the environment and sustainability is the way to the future. According to Alexandre Dang, people are not aware of the importance of sustainable energy. With his ‘Dancing Solar Flowers’ he wants to stimulate this awareness, also on Fleuramour. Be sure to pay a visit to the Orangery because there will be a lot of flowers to admire!
