2021 Floral Design Theme: “Birds of a Feather”
Announcing the 2021 Floral Design Division Classes for the Flower, Food, and Foto Show on the weekend of August 14 and 15.
This division historically has had few entries. So get your creative juices flowing and keep up the great work with floral arrangements in this year’s FFF Show.
|The design classes are as follows:|
Ruby-throated Hummingbird: Miniature design less than 6”x6”x6.”
Snowy Egret: Floral design using white or cool-colored blooms.
Macaw: Floral design using red or warm-colored blooms.
Flamingo: Floral design using pink and pastel blooms.
Goldfinches: Floral design using gold, yellow/natural-colored blooms.
Ostrich: A tall floral design.
Materials used in the designs need to be “garden grown,” but do not need to all come from your garden. The materials you might find at a farmer’s market are often garden grown by local farmers.
There are two classes for floral design:
Amateur – open to all who have won five or fewer first place awards in the design division of the flower show.
Advanced – open to all.
Tentative Weekend Schedule:
7:00 – 10:15 am Saturday – Bring in your Flower and Food entries
10:30am-12:30pm Saturday – Judging takes place
12:30-4:30pm Saturday – Show open to the public
10:30am-4:30pm Sunday – Show open to the public
