Well, there's a man behind those floral arrangements and he's basically our neighbor. 39 yearr old Tu Bloom, is a botanic artist is from Andersonville, Illinois. This isn't Bloom's first rodeo, he's been styling floral arrangements for The Grammys for the past 10 years. The Chicago Tribune details -
Tu Bloom, 39, found a passion for plants and gardening after his family emigrated from Vietnam to Chicago when he was 5 years old.
Bloom also told the Tribune -
We lived in mixed housing that had Section 8 and projects on the North Side of Chicago. My friends and I started cultivating soil in an abandoned parking lot behind the buildings, and that’s where I successfully started cultivating herbs, small thumb-size carrots and radishes.
His love grew from there and brought him to where he is today - The Grammys!
