Italy is a country renowned for its love of celebrations, particularly those that take place in the ambience of a garden. From intimate gatherings to grand weddings, Italians embrace the outdoors with a passion that has deeply influenced Ivan Bergh’s floral designs. Our Red Naomi rose is one flower that consistently stands out in these celebrations.

The award-winning floral designer and teacher, Ivan Bergh describes Red Naomi as a classic rose that adds a touch of elegance and romance to any event where it is used. Ivan shared with us some Red Naomi wedding arrangements as well as a little back story of why Italians love garden celebrations. Here’s his story.

The Italian Tradition of Garden Celebrations

In Italy, garden celebrations are more than just a trend; they are a cherished tradition. Italian gardens, with their greenery, vigorous flowers, and historic charm, provide the perfect setting for varied festivities. Whether it’s a wedding, an anniversary, or a birthday party, celebrating in a garden allows for a connection with nature in an intimate, magical atmosphere. The scent of blooming flowers, the soft rustle of leaves, and the gentle Italian breeze all contribute to an unforgettable experience.

Inspiration From Italian Gardens 
As a floral designer, the beauty of Italian gardens has been a constant source of inspiration for my work. These gardens’ harmonious blend of colors and textures offers endless creative possibilities. The elegance of a well-manicured hedge, the charm of a stone pathway, and the diverse colors of flowers influence my designs. When creating floral arrangements for garden celebrations, I strive to capture the essence of these spaces, bringing a piece of Italian garden touches to each event.

The Timeless Elegance of Porta Nova’s Roses

Porta Nova’s roses hold a special place among the options of flowers I use. Its deep, velvety red petals and classic look makes it a favorite for any celebration. These roses are not only stunning but also incredibly versatile. They can stand alone as the main piece or blend easily with other flowers to create a harmonious arrangement. 

Their durability and long vase life ensure that they remain fresh and beautiful throughout the event, symbolizing love and passion. This is one reason why the Italian love for garden celebrations has influenced my floral designs for this occasion. It inspired me to create arrangements that reflect the natural beauty of these spaces.
