One of the most exciting events in floristry takes place right now: The RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The Florist of the year competition is the most popular part of RHS Chelsea and the winner has been announced today: Ellouise Hasler-Stott from EG Flowers. Congratulations on receiving the award!
Florist of the year
“Spring Wedding” was the theme for this year’s competition at RHS Chelsea. The florists were asked to create a floral wedding throne. One of the conditions was that 2/3 of the finished design had to be fresh flower and/or plant material.
All the thrones made by florists under 25 years old were stunning, but there could only be one winner! Ellouise Hasler-Stott from EG Flowers received the Gold Medal in the Young Chelsea Florist competition this year. Her design is amazing with all the small details!
BFA: “The overall look of the design was outstanding, magical and natural. Ellouise drew inspiration from the link between marriage and spring – the beginning of spring growth and the growth of a partnership between two people. Her throne is seen to be growing out of the ground, with the materials growing and entwining around one another.”
