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.
In Colombia it’s traditional in the month of August “Silleteros”, commemorating the collection of annual flowers. My work is a tribute to them, more organized composition with design showing every flower looking naturally.
I used a variety of flowers and greens.
In my work I presented a variety of warm colors that express joy and passion, specially pinks.

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 developed a “medula” structure that comes from the drafts of the trees. Representative cord from the Amazon area.
I would go to a hospital and seek a person with health problems, a difficult disease to give encouragement and hope.
