Sharing Yan’s passion for flowers

Dahlia competition at Parc Floral of Paris August 24, 2010

The Parc Floral is located in the east of Paris, in the Bois de Vincennes, one of the 2 artificial forests at the gate of Paris.


Currently there is a competition of Dahlia flowers in the Park. This is a tradition of the Park since 1992.  I’d like to share some pictures with you.


Which one do you prefer? You can go and vote for your favorite variety until late September.

Good news : result of Floral Art Contest April 7, 2010

I’ve just been informed that I’ve got the third prize in the Floral Art Contest organised by my school Natura-Dis.

The jury found my arrangement a little high for a table center piece (that I agree) but really creative and harmonious.

I’m quite happy about the result. Anyway, this is the first contest I am in. I think I can do better next time.

Here is the Winners’ creations in my group: classic vegetative style.

 

 

My flower book (21) : Floral art contest March 21, 2010

I entered the Floral Art Contest 2010 organised by Natura-Dis, a French training program for florists. There were 2 subjects: the first one was to create a classic vegetative table center piece for a business lunch about the sustainable development, so a recycled object must be used in the creation; the second one was to create a modern bouquet for the opening of a small smoothie shop, fruits and exotic flowers must be used in the creation.

 

I have chosen the first subject and had arranged a bouquet of spring flowers resting on cardboard rolls.

Here are some pictures of my creation.
