I won my very first florist competition :)

A while back after tweeting around on twitter someone came to me to ask if I was interested in a floral competition I suddenly thought yes, and then Put it of for a while and then 2 weeks ago thought to my self life is to short ‘lets do it’.

It was to design a floral arrangement in oasis with the theme diamond jubilee. I struggled to think of an idea with out having the chance to play around with flowers so I went with my initial thought of making the crown of jewels. My theme would be sparkles and patriotic colours. Saturday night I didn’t sleep because I was itching to make it, I woke up early sunday morning and started making it … 8 hours later I finished and finally my visual masterpiece in my head turned out how I imagined it to be.

The competition was at Powis castle in Welshpool which is run by the National trust –  I had a huge array of comments just walking to the competition tent, people stopping to say how wonderful it was :)
Anyway a couple of hours later I win 1st place :)  I walked away with a certificate and a rosette and a huge smile :)
Very pleased and proud that the hard work paid off, now what to do next….

Here’s my crown!
