The musical Mary Poppins was the inspiration for their exhibit which featured four designs…an arrangement for the front entrance of the theatre, a hat to be worn during the show, a wired presentation bouquet to be given to the female star of the show and a table arrangement for the after-show party on the opening night.
The materials used included preserved stachys leaves, sempervivums, preserved seed heads, spray roses, cottage garden roses and trailing house plants.
The design is the result of teamwork from a group of Level 2 and Level 3 Diploma floristry students, together with support from college lecturers.
Elaine Thackray, Lecturer in Floristry at Writtle, commented: “After a hectic and emotional week the floristry team are so pleased to have received such wonderful recognition for all their hard work. We are all so passionate about the design and can’t wait to spend the rest of the week talking about it with the public.”
If you’re visiting the show this week, the exhibit can be found in the Floral Design Studio, adjacent to the Festival of Roses Marquee.
