Monday was the big day for hundreds of graduates at the University of Oregon here in Eugene. In addition to our regular hustle and bustle of congratulations flowers and leis for graduates, Dandelions kept extra busy providing all of the commencement flowers for the University venues including Matt Knight Arena.
Since graduation is a weekend-long event we began delivering the flowers on Thursday for departments that held their ceremonies earlier. It took 6 staff and 3 vans on both Sunday and Monday to transport all the arrangements, decorate Matt Knight and deliver to each venue for specific department graduations. Whew!! A lot of work and it looks amazing!!
The arrangements were made with large red anthurium, sunflowers, white fuji mums, gladiolas, and bells of Ireland with lots of tropical leaves. It was fun to be part of such a celebration! Congrats Grads!
