The Great British Wreath Off

Join our Christmas Wreath Competition!

YES, you read it correctly CHRISTMAS! It is only August but Christmas is coming round very quickly and before we know it December will be here. For our fourth edition of the Florismart Magazine, we are looking to include an article on unusual Christmas wreaths to inspire florists and get us all thinking outside the box. So we need you!

Wreath competition

We will be holding a wreath competition across Florismart’s network with The Midlands West business club (September 10th) being the hub for this.

We are looking for an unusual trend lead wreath. As it is September when we are running this competition there will be no spruce around so sundry based wreaths or wreaths made with other kinds of foliage are what we are looking for. Take this opportunity to peruse the platform and find some great things offered by the sundry suppliers – so much is already online for the dreaded C word! Alternatively, look through the Christmas boxes in the back of your shop and go crazy! Happy wreathing!

Rules of play

  • If you are going to attend the Midlands West Business Club then please bring along your wreath ready-made to the club, to be photographed there.
  • Even if you cannot attend this club date or it is outside of a reasonable travelling distance you can still enter the competition. All you need to do is take a good high-quality photograph* of your wreath and email it to Deadline: Monday AM, September 9th
    • *As the competition will be featured in our print Magazine, only pictures that are of a high enough quality will be accepted.

What’s in it for you?

Besides a lot of fun making your unusual wreath, we have some great prizes to hand out to the winners of the contest. The florists who win 1st, 2nd or 3rd place at the end of this Great British Wreath Off will be awarded a well-stuffed goodiebag.  This will hold lots of goodies from our suppliers and Dutch delights – things you simply don’t want to miss out on!  More information to be announced soon. Besides, the winners will be featured in both our print magazine (only available to Pro members) and our online magazine. The latter will be visible and promoted amongst consumers, so it might help you get those last wreath workshop spots filled!


Please send an email to if you are interested in entering the competition.
