I walked into the Molson House, happy that there was no line. Then the bouncer asked for my ticket, which I had no idea I needed. I asked where to get one and he said the only tickets left were VIP tickets which currently sell for $500. I thought about all the bouquets of flowers I had to sell so that I could go inside and promptly stood in line for the free entry into the Saskatchewan house.
All you need is good people to be with and anywhere would be fun…..As much as I like Tents and tables inside the tents I kept on wondering what was inside the Quebec house.
The answer: No Poutine!!!!!!!!!!!!
Delivering flowers the next day brought me into the heart of Yaletown.
The energy in Yaletown was awesome, everyone lining up to eat a late brunch and buy Canadian flags and get some free samples.
I can’t believe it’s all coming to an end soon, but before it does, check out all the Olympic coverage from great blogs such as:

After checking out many of the Olympic houses across downtown Vancouver, the Slovak House is very impressive and much much more then a tent with tables.
While setting up the floral arrangements this week, my stomach was growling and my mouth parched from all the smells of gourmet food and clinking from the glasses of cold beer.
Look at how busy it is!
Here is a close up of this week’s flowers:
We put together red roses, red gerberas and a variety of tropical greenery for this red themed arrangement.
This elegant white themed arrangement has white gerberas, white cymbidium orchids and white double petal tulips.
The blue themed arrangement has blue roses, blue dendrobium orchids and purple anemone.
More pictures of the Slovak house can be seen here!

Just wanted to say how proud we are to be Canadian. The roar when these athlete’s entered the building was ridiculous!
Amy and I were screaming at the top of our lungs from the upper balcony as Team Canada entered BC Place in downtown Vancouver. The support and standing ovation from the 60,000 plus people in attendance for the Georgian team was very touching.
Here are a few pictures we quickly snapped before getting back to work (the audience was super busy using different flashlights, flags and drum sticks on queue for the special effects)
Waiting for the countdown
Go Slovakia Go! Hope you liked our flowers we designed for you!

Today we got to decorate the Slovak Representative House with flowers that match their national flag. For the duration of the Vancouver Winter Olympics, Slovakia has setup a Slovak cultural atmosphere in the Vancity Theatre in Downtown Vancouver.
They requested us to use the same colours as their national flag and we had a great time arranging these flowers that will be placed in various locations in the theatre.
For this arrangement, we used premium red roses, blue roses, blue orchids, white roses and white cymbidium.
According to the official Slovak Representative House website, they will be serving food, wine, cheese, music cultural presentations and movies. Check out their website for more info.
