The Europa Cup 2020 participants will compete in six tasks, with musical themes. They will begin with a 90-minute challenge of preparing a table arrangement for a school reunion, called "Every life has a soundtrack". The second task is a floral installation - 'Dance in the Rain' - which is the biggest design piece the contestants will be faced with. The arrangement is supposed to show the beauty of movement and dance, while at least 50% of the living plant material must be placed in black Oasis foam. A challenging job!
The third assignment is to florally decorate a dancer. For this task, entitled 'Dancing Queen', the participants will have 2 hours and the inspiration will be a specially prepared soundtrack. Afterwards, the participants' floristic skills will be tested via two surprise tasks. Details of those tasks remain secret for now; they will only be presented to the competitors a few minutes before the beginning of the event. Every contestant will receive an identical set of materials, as well as guidelines which must be followed.
The final task is a hand-held bouquet arrangement entitled 'Life is much like a song'. This assignment will take place during the Final Gala on Saturday evening. Complemented by a feast for the senses with musical and artistic attractions, this year’s Europa Cup champion will be announced. Afterwards, the contestants and visitors can dance the night away during the afterparty.
