You must already know that educating our florists, arrangers and event planners is very important to us. Over the years, we try our best for them to get the best experience and knowledge from all around the world. We can tell you for sure, being a florist is more than arranging flowers and making bouquets. It’s about making art, being motivated and open minded in order to get the best result for our dear customers.
This year, Nancy and Barbara had the honor of visiting Singapore. The occasion was the World’s Florist Championship which has been held for almost 20 years already. This year it was Singapore’s turn to host all these wonderful people and teach them things about their profession. our wonderful girls have spent 10 days working with 60 other flower artists and florists from all over the world and had a wonderful time learning and working with a bunch of young people. Unfortunately, Nancy and Barbara weren’t the ones to win the competition, but they came back home enriched for this wonderful experience, with some new skills and knowledge.
They say how thrilling it is to work and travel to a destination so different from the one we live in. “Singapore is so so lively and we felt like the city never sleeps. It was almost like being in a different universe! Our colleagues at the competition were young flower artists aged 18-35 from all over the world. We had a wonderful roommate, Aida from Romania- She was very lovely and she was a great teacher to all of us there. I’m sure we’ll keep in touch” said Nancy
Barbara was shocked how popular flower design is in Singapore,”I couldn’t believe all those people coming there to actually look at what we do. Like, there was a bunch of people in the great hall at all times. They weren’t only interested i seeing what we had done, but they really wanted to be a part of the process during all those ten days we’ve worked there. I’ve been to many places so far, but have never seen something like this. Singapore, you’re amazing!”
We are glad our wonderful girls had a great time and we hope they will attend many more competitions in the future!
