Ready, Steady, Floristry!

Posted by Dennis van Wonderen on 17 Aug 2008 at 10:59 PM

It's been a while since my last post so here's some news from the BFA camp. Visitors to the BFA Marquee at the Tatton Park Flower Show were in for a bit of a shock when the floristry demonstrators started asking for volunteers from the audience for our Ready, Steady, Floristry! challenge.

After a brief introduction the volunteers were shown the item they would have to re-create following a short demonstration by the florist expert. What the volunteers didn't know though when they had stepped onto the stage was that they would only be given four minutes to create their masterpiece!

The informal competition was a great hit with the crowds and saw competitors from all walks of life competing against eachother. From all the different pairs the best ones probably the building contractor against the carer and the policeman against the butcher.
