Harrogate Spring Show 2019

Posted on April 30, 2019 at 9:39 AM Comments comments (82)

It's been a very long time since my last Blog. many apologies to you all. I will keep up to date a bit more on here.

I have  good news to share with all I have just won again at Harrogate 1st prize and best in show. you can see my picture on my website please feel free to take a look.
I also won first in 2017 and best in show at Harrogate flower show with a similar design but just a Basque.

This design was featured in the Flower Arranger I will get the issue number if you are interested.

I was so pleased as I was worried about my exhibit this time round as I used Starchy
leaves for the top half and for the bottom half I used preserved Lotus leaves, The lotus leaves absorbed the moisture in the air over night and started to drip with water. The design was fine as they thought I just sprayed them to keep them moist.

I have had that many comments and fabulous feed back I am overwhelmed  and I thank you all.
I love being a florist creating designs for clients and exhibiting at shows.
if you are in Yorkshire in the Autumn come visit Harrogate show, its a little smaller in the autumn but still fab.
speak soon Regards

HI Everyone
it's been such a hectic year for me so i do apologise I have not been blogging.
I have so much to tell you all whats been happening throughout the year. I have been doing lots of weddings again this year which I really enjoy doing, it's a delight to see the different choices and varieties the brides choose.
The competition work has been really special this year starting off with Harrogate Spring show once again I did a few designs some of the designs I have uploaded for you to view. This year at Harrogate I won 3 x thirds and a 1 x  Commended which I was overwelmed with as each design I won something which is an achievement.
Following this I did my first year at RHS Tatton show and wow what an experience this was I really enjoyed it and the people were amazing, they were so friendly and helpful which I would like to mention Neil whittiker a really nice guy and Roz and all the other competitors made you feel very welcome indeed, not forgetting all the staff who were there on hand to help at all times.
The best achievement was when I won Silver here at Tatton I couldnt believe it My first ever Tatton show and I win Silver :)
Following this I had a few other shows I did Leeds show which i won 2 x 3rd prizes and shadwell show which I won  2 x1st prizes and 1 x 2nd prize.
The final show I did this year was at Harrogate Autumn show and again what a high standard it was very tough and again I was in shock I won 1 x 1st prize 1x 2nd prize and 1 x 4th prize I was so pleased with all my awards this year I cannot believe how well I have done. also I would like to thank everyone at Harrogate flower show as they always each year do a tremendous job.
Heres to 2016 shows bring it on.

New year, New shows

Hi Everyone I know its late replying but happy new year to you all. I have been busy getting my shows in order for this year 2015. It been a very long time since I last blogged it was finding time to blog i know it sounds silly but time flys.
I forgot to tell you all how i did at harrogate flower show last year the spring show i won A 3rd prize and also for the autumn show I won a 3rd prize there as well. I was to be honest a little bit disappointed as i did put allot of time into my exhibits, but you cant win all the time just remember its the taking part that counts and the joy it brings to the customers that attend the shows.
 I not only do flower shows I also run my flower business part time which I love doing.
I have a few things to to tell you this year I have decided I would like to do the Tatton show in Cheshire I have just sent my application in for this big show. so i will keep you all posted if i am successful fingers crossed. I have also my regular shows that I will be attending and exhibiting again. I have had my entries back already for Harrogate spring show and i am delighted that I got the categories that i choose this year one of those entries is the WAFAS which for the first time this year they are having a heat at harrogate so feeling excited about that.
So at the moment I have been getting all my ideas together for each show busy drawing all my exhibits and ideas maybe i should post these one day so that you can see how i prepare for each show.
I know this has been such a long blog sorry I just need to catch up on a few things for you I will keep blogging I promise. so heres to the next blog.

Harrogate spring Flower show 2014

Posted on April 2, 2014 at 6:02 AM Comments comments (18)
Hi Everyone
well over the past few months i have been preparing for the Harrogate Spring show. I have been coming up with my ideas for each show title which are : Diva - this can be pre made before the show which is good because you can get designing the main frame etc for your show piece. I have chosen my Diva which i will keep a secret for the time being. I have to design a display for a Divas dressing room , this is quite interesting as there is allot you could do. my Diva is a well known film actress back when the black n white films started so thats a bit of a clue.
the other titles I will doing are "Something in the air" , "Fire N Ice"  and "On Your Bike" so i will have my work cut out at this show but i do like a challenge.
I will keep you posted
