Well it is cycling season and with that comes the bike races. Most of the staff and owners at Green Theory Distributors are avid cyclists, so we were excited to again be a part of the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix. This year we had the task to add all the planters and greenery to the race and in particular, the VIP area. What a fun time working with the great organizing staff at Global Relay, and we had an even better time coming up with the custom planters required and the planting scheme. A huge thanks goes to Lara Franske of Trust Property Services, who was responsible for the small table top planters and designing and installing the entire planting scheme for the event.
Planters Perfect Divider Planters and the Tower 32 planters were our pots of choice. They got finished in Matte Black powder coating. 34 Dividers were used, along with 6 Towers. The plants chosen played in the red tones and helped to support the branding that Global Relay brought to the race. Custom sized planters were needed when the city decided to pour a new concrete curb right where the catering was, albeit it was part of a new bike lane. We came up with a solution that straddled the curb and gave a clean look for the food and beverage area. We had a great time and we all got to enjoy the race from the VIP area. And even better was cheering on the talented ladies of Continental Crit Nasty! Well, until next year!
