Sunday, August 03, 2008The BFA at Tatton park RHS show
At Tatton this year the World skills uk held their finals for the trainee florist. This was run by the BFA. There were some well known florist there, Sarah Horne, Neil Whittiker and Judy Chrips to name but a few. On the day I went Wednesday 23rd Sarah was demonstrating and telling us of her great success in Seattle you can see her work http://www.hotflowers.com.uk/ Nial was doing the commentary his site is http://www.designelementflowers.com/ The six competitors all had the same flowers and the task's to perform, pedestal, hand tie, brides bouquet, button hole which they new about, then they had a mystery arrangement to make which was a wreath using some vegetables. I went back for the finale winner and managed to take some photos and congratulate her but as far as knowing she was from Ireland that's as much as i can say. I have mislaid the paper with the information on and I have been on the bfa web site but they have not updated it with the information so I'm afraid can't tell you the lucky winners name sorry.
