International Floral Distributors, Inc. (IFD) persistently works to supply the flower and design industries with the latest consumer trends. As part of that work, IFD partners with a floral trend forecaster to research modern consumers and their flower design preferences. This year, IFD collaborated with trend forecaster, Michael J.
