CARNIVAL FLORAL COUTURE TAKES GOLD AT RHS TATTON PARK

The English Carnival won a GOLD MEDAL at RHS Tatton Park 2015

Designed by five time RHS Chelsea Gold Medal Winner Joseph Massie and students from the UK School of Floristry, the 5m x 2m floral installation is a vivid whirlwind of exciting colour, cheer and fantasy, combined with fabulous flowers and foliage to create a floral delight for the senses. For his choice of flowers Joseph Massie contacted LM Flower Fashion.

Students from the Liverpool based School created three distinct Carnival Characters to embody their installation — the Entertainer, the Ring Master and the Confectioner, and these classic English Carnival characters are given a fresh and innovative floral make over ~ by wearing bespoke Floral Couture outfits. Each outfit takes inspiration from the energy of English Carnivals — from jackets made from Admission Tickets to Playing Card Catsuits, each look is created using exquisite flowers and foliage.These fabulous characters sit amongst a colourful Carnival environment, filled with ring toss, pop corn and other fun fair classics, to provide an entertaining and engaging floral display.

The flowers and foliage utilized within the display are in part sponsored by the Schools long standing floral design suppliers — notably Anco Pure Vanda, Meijer Roses and Marginpar. The stand includes the finest Sweet Avalanche roses, used in combination with exotic Vanda Orchids, rare Gloriosa, Astrantia, Clematis and Chasmantium to create a truly breath taking visual treat. Through the Schools outstanding reputation, the students have access to study with the highest grade of fresh flowers and foliages.

Achieving their very first medal at RHS Tatton Park, The English Carnival by the UK School of Floristry showcases the finest work from it’s students across several courses.The School itself caters for students looking for classes in Floral Art & Design at beginner, professional and advanced levels, providing a welcoming and friendly atmosphere in which to learn Floral Art & Design. Based in Aintree, Liverpool, the School is proud to attract students from far and wide — nationally and internationally.

Previous Chelsea Flower Show Medal Winner Joseph Massie told us “The opportunity for our students to exhibit their work at RHS Tatton Park is a dream come true for them. The show is a wonderful opportunity to really stretch their creativity and technical skills by coming up with a truly incredible design, that we’re delighted to say, caught the eye of the judges, and the imagination of the public.”
