How would it be like, to watch a competition on Flower Arrangements by best florists of the town? Well, I am sure I cannot imagine the beautiful ways the florists would come up with as per the arrangements of flowers.
Competition always give a thrust in the positive sense in that there is always a need and crave to give the best in yourself. This even helps people in exploring their own talents and taking yourself to the extremes simply because you want to stay ahead of the others. Now, imagine this with some of the best florists competing openly and trying to deliver their best. Whew.. the results would be mind blowing.
This is what happened last weekend at Mackay. More than 30 florists and shop owners took part in the Mackay Florists Regional Competition and education weekend. The result was spectacular arrangements with real treat for eyes and soul.
The task was to create a Centerpiece arrangement for a Cockail party being celebrated by a couple on their first wedding anniversary. The winner – Annette German (a florist for last 8 yrs) created the arrangement with Tiger Lilies, Billy buttons and roses.
I got this news from Daily Mercury, and really appreciated the heading they put in for the news – “Its all hearts and flowers when florists battle”. Of course, that needs no mention.
The next competition is scheduled on 15 June at Brisbane.
