Chris Giftos – The star florist for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for 30 years was in Birmingham last week teaching and telling his story. Not only did he wow over 250 guests to the community with his flowers but he also told us some amazing stories about Presidents and Kings. The met throws huge parties often with guests paying up to 15,000 a couple to partake. You can imagine the flowers will look pretty good. Below is a photo of Chris at work along with the arrangment he taught everyone how to put together.
