The Canadian Academy of Floral Art, CAFA, held its annual design show and induction ceremony on October 19, 2011 and I was there with my floral friend Deb. The theme for this year’s show was Canadian Content – A Tribute to Things Canadian. The florals for the show were fashioned around Canadian Fashion, Canadian Wine and Canadian Invention. All the floral artists did a fabulous job!
During the show three new members were welcomed to CAFA: Neville MacKay, Finola Lee Jones and Heather Styba Page. CAFA also welcomed several student members to the organization. Congratulations to all the new members, you all worked very hard to reach this goal.
Here are a few of my favourite floral art pieces from each category:
Cheers to the following businesses who sponsored the design show, their dedicated support to the Canadian floral art industry does not go unseen:
- Highland Evergreen
- John G Hofland Ltd.
- Landscape Ontario
- Mex Y Can
- Smither Oasis North America
- Staalduinen Floral
- Teleflora Canada

Thanks CAFA for putting on another great show, looking forward to next year’s!
