The power of flowers

Fall is definitely here to stay, but warm days still linger in our minds and in our hearts… fortunately Pinga Amor’s amazing floral design has the power to transport us to a gorgeous summer day in Portugal where, inspired by a rustic and organic feel, the beautiful Douro Palace Hotel was transformed into a fresh and elegant paradise, where linen, sackcloth, wooden boxes, detailed glass and kraft paper laid the foundation for the fragrant beauty spun by porcelain flowers, buttercups, baby’s breath, eustoma, eucalyptus, roses, peonies, viburnum and chrysanthemums. A white, ivory and natural green garden of love…
