Minneapolis Home & Garden Show Competition

I guess I am little bit behind on my blog...

I participated Koehler & Dramm professional floral designer competition on Jan. 31. The topic was "Vintage Valentine". I had so much fun creating this piece. My idea was creating a hat with a ring hidden in it. I absolutely loved my hat. It led me to another level of competition.

I was very fortune to be one of the six finalists to go on to Koehler & Dramm's Floral Designer of the Year Competition 2010 at Minneapolis Convention Center on Feb. 26. It was my first time to compete with other 5 talented floral designers ON STAGE. It was a quite adventure.

We received a surprised package on the stage. There were only 30 minutes to design this piece, including 5 minutes to read the instructions.

Here are some photos of the finalists' design work.


First place: Karen
