The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) of Northern Ohio held their Annual Installation & Awards Ceremony at headquarters of Plants & Blooms. At the start of the event, attendees had a delightful time walking through the venue viewing the floral displays. Before the ceremony, members of IREM mingled and reconnected. Everyone had the opportunity to make succulent plants, provided by Plants & Blooms. Andy Fernandez, IREM Board Member also performed live with his band Steady Groove. The live music as well as the collection of floral arrangements made for a warm and welcoming atmosphere!
