This week has whizzed past! It’s quite hard to believe it’s Friday already…and it’s time for my weekly Florist Friday blog post. Today, I thought I’d share with you my favourite floral designs at Flowers@Oxford, which took place last month. Designers from all over the world had created breath-talking masterpieces. I loved Per Benjamin‘s hanging discs of interwoven blooms in various hues.
And Dennis Kneepkens‘s structural design, created using chrysanthemums, was fabulous!
Roselilies were in abundance in Stijn Simaeys‘s spectacular creation. The photographs really don’t do it justice. It was such an incredibly large creation, with masses of threads leading back to a piano!
…there were pyramids, massed with these daisy-like flowers. If you scroll back up to the first photo, you’ll see these arrangements in place in the Front Quadrant at Lady Margaret Hall in Oxford, where the event took place.
These final arrangements were part of a display by Lehner Wolle3. Aren’t the containers just so cute?! They’re created using wool and felt, which the company make.
P.S. Here’s a link to florist Claire Cowling’s bridal bouquet demo at the event. (I’ve got two more to share with you over the coming weeks.)
