Day 1: First competition task: Wedding in the Andes
Competitors will make a wedding design for a traditional Colombian wedding in the Andean region. The arrangement will be the central piece for the chapel. The arrangement should be representative of the region.
The arrangement will be made in a vase. All floral material must be placed in floral foam.
The arrangement must be at least 1,5 meters high. This height includes the dimensions of the vase. There is no high restriction. Color is free.
It is a decorative classic tall as the mountains flower arrangement, representing the earth. The air is represented by transparencies and the space between the water and the top of the vase. Fire is represented by the red tones of the composition.
I Used flowers that are born in our Colombian Andes.
This work and this floral design would very much like to the majority of brides and gooms of my country, so classic, because in the Andean region weddings are very traditional, with lots of flowers.
