Send flowers to Brussels
Brussels in the capital of Belgium and also the home of the European Union, making it one of the most important cities in the world. It is a beautiful city, home to the magnificent Grand Place and the St Michael and Gudula Cathedral. Impressively Brussels is home to 80 museums! These vary from historical museums to art museums which display works of famous Belgian painters such as René Magritte and Rogier van der Weyden.
The long established horticultural tradition in Belgium offers inspiration to anyone wanting to send flowers to Brussels. The annual Flower Carpet in Brussels is quite possibly the largest – and certainly one of the most spectacular, floral displays presented anywhere in the world. Compared to many longstanding European flower festivals, such as the elaborate religious processions of Spain and the infiorate of Italy, the Brussels Flower Carpet is a relative newcomer. In its present form, the annual Flower Carpet dates back only to 1971, and was the brain child of noted Belgian architect E, Stautemans. His inspiration was the small scale floral mosaics that he had witnessed in Flanders' towns and villages during his childhood.
The Flower Carpet in Brussels occupies the entirety of the vast Grand Place at the centre of the Belgian capital, an area of 77 by 24 metres. For weeks before the five day event in August, Brussels flower delivery vans ferry over 750,000 begonia flowers into the city. After this, the hard work begins. Every square inch of space is jam packed with vibrant blooms, painstakingly laid out by hand to a pre-designed scheme. The completed carpet is best observed from the air, but provides an unforgettable visual and sensual treat to the thousands of visitors who flock to the city to witness it. After all the hard work, congratulations flowers in Brussels are in order; and begonias are a grand choice of bloom for that special arrangement for friends or family.
