Who doesn’t love flowers? Flowers follow us everywhere and accompany our most important events like weddings, anniversaries, inaugurals, birthdays, hello’s and good-bye’s. And sometimes, pretty florals are sitting quietly on window seals brightening our blues and days.
However today I am bringing to you a fun and beautiful challenge. Very simple. Yet, very rewarding – VaseOff! Challenge.
What is a VaseOff!Challenge? It is a project runway-style competition where expert florists compete for the best flower arrangement. Here are just a few examples how extraordinary these floral designs can be.
For the last VaseOff! contest, the designers were challenged to revive the Roaring “20s by creating flower compositions inpsired by the Great Gatsby.
In July of this year, the theme of the VaseOff! Challenge will be Gift Giving.
And this is where you, my dear readers come in. YOU will decide on what would make a fabulous, creative and compelling July floral challenge, based on a gift-giving theme.
What should we have our designers create?
• Recognition for a friend or a relative who has reached their major milestone?
• A thank-you for your favorite neighbor?
• A welcome gift bouquet for someone returning from a long and enduring mission?
• A fantasy bouquet that could be given to anybody who inspired you?
Help us to brainstorm these ideas! Please.
As a Thank-you, Celebrate Woman Today will give a $50 AmEx card to one person with the most creative proposed idea.
Please leave your comments with your creative thoughts below. If you have more than one idea – don’t be bashful, enter twice or as many times as your creativity allows you. Just make a separate comment. Again, it is your creativity that shall bring you the prize!
Let’s see what we can think of this time around!
All comments are due by June 1, 2012. I’ll pick the winner on the same day. Please make sure you leave your email in the comments, so I could contact you without delay.
Please Retweet, and Thank You!
