European Flower Tour – Day 1 and 2

Our tour is centered around “Floralies Ghent”, a historic flower festival dating back to 1808 and occurs once every five years.  We have a great group of women ready to see all the sight and sounds as well as learn from the masters of European design. Our flower tour officially began Sunday at the Ghent Marriott.
