Day 2: Second competition task: A table decoration for Silleteros
This theme is based on the traditional march of the Colombian “silleteros” and their designs. Competitors will have to design a round arrangement on a support table.
The arrangement will be made on round floral foam. Shape is round. The arrangement must be more than 1 meter in diameter. Color is free.
For the topic of Silleteros I made a Biedermeier with a variety of flowers related to the celebration of Silleteros in Medellin.
I used flowers and foliage that you can find in Medellin, as, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums, roses, alstroemeria, antirrinum, ruscus, gerberas and matsumoto.
I wanted to apply a harmony of colors from red to green on the color wheel, to blues and violets.

Day 2: Third competition task: A bouquet from the Amazon.
The amazon has a wide array of different flowers and greens that cannot be seen anywhere in the world. This theme focuses on the most common floral arrangement: the bouquet. Competitors will make a bouquet by incorporating flowers and greens from the amazon.
The arrangement will have a minimum of 30 stems and it must be possible to carry the bouquet by one person. Competitors may use a structure for the bouquet that will be made during the days given for preparation.
Shape and size is free. A Complimentary color harmony must be used. The bouquet will be made in a spiral form with one binding point.
I would give this bouquet a person who is going through a difficult time and has health problems, with a message of encouragement to feel that everything passes and faith and force overcome all.
