All these displays were housed in the Floral Design Studio at Tatton Flower Show. The hub for all things floristry related, exhibits, competitions, demonstrations and workshops. Several colleges took part in the first specific College Competition at Tatton which I blogged about on Saturday. Young florists took part in the WorldSkills competitions, which I’ll feature soon.
The displays above are from local florist The Black Rose, based in Knutsford and Hale. The Black Rose has exhibited at Tatton for many years and always does a fantastic display. This year’s designs featured their trademark contemporary style using a white theme. These fabulous 5ft tall vases hold arrangements of hydrangeas, delphiniums and Singapore orchids.
The stunning floral table runner features roses, hydrangeas, stocks, orchids, and chrysanthemum blooms. The garlands that trail down the sides of the table are made from Singapore orchids.
Reaseheath College from Nantwich used very vibrant colours in their display. They used cerise, lime, purple and orange set against black display stands. They cleverly filled storage units from a well-known Swedish furniture shop with flowers too.
This circular design features gloriosa, roses, orchids, chrysanths, carnations and anthuriums, with loops of flexi grass.
Manchester based florist Verdure produced an impressive display based on Plato’s Atlantis. The huge wave was constructed out of willow branches and adorned with fresh flowers. They used hydrangeas, delphiniums, vanda orchids, and amaranthus in shades of blues and purples, with white phalaenopsis orchids at the crest of the wave.
