These creations are the most pleasant and creates an eye-balls grabbing effect. Generally, they are fabricated out of flowers and flower petals, colored sawdust so that they recline over long areas and are conspicuous from an elongated distance. These types of marvels are usually durable until others sop some watery stuff over them.

One of the outstanding wide-spread arrays will be hosted at the Tapis De Fleurs in Brussels, Belgium on 12th August. Here in Brussels, this idea first hit the brains of E. Stautemans, who is a landscape architect and have basked the glory of creating a huge carpet stretching 164 x 42 meters at Ghent. However the man who has accomplished massive glories prefers the Grand Place in Brussels that is a 77 x 44 meter carpet, which is still majestic.

Also, there are varied destinations like Tenerife, Canary Islands; Arundel Cathedral in Arundel, England; and Rome.
