Resendiz Bros. Flowers Adorn Three Rose Parade Floats

Silverleaf foliage from Resendiz Brothers Protea Growers in Rainbow was used in three Tournament of Roses Parade floats Jan. 1.

The silverleaf appeared on the Wisconsin football helmet, the China Airlines float "Cycling Through Paradise," and the Disney float "Destination: Cars Land." All three floats were created by Artistic Entertainment Services. "The blooms just come so nice and big, and they’re just so easy to work with," said Artistic Entertainment Services floral consultant Andrea Zepeda.

Zepeda noted that leaves and flowers are placed in buckets of water before being glued onto the floats a few days before the Rose Parade itself. "It looks just as beautiful four or five days out of water," Zepeda said of the silverleaf.

Artistic Entertainment Services (AES), which was once also known as Festival Artists Worldwide, has been working with Resendiz Brothers Protea Growers since 2008 during preparation for the 2009 floats. AES used Resendiz Brothers silverleaf on three of the four AES floats for the 2013 parade.
