Flower Show and Tea – Part 3

Flower Show and Tea – Part 3


Continuing with photos from the Flower Show and Tea, which had as its theme:  Chester Gems, we have a few examples of the artistic breakfast trays that were entered in the design class “Breakfast in Bed at a Chester B and B”.


Taking first place was the silver tray with delicate pink roses and accessories, shown above. It was entered by Joanne Jellett, who is shown below with a stunning arrangement of lilies placed on a beautiful glass tray made by local artisans at Chez Glass Lass. This arrangement won her the Popular Choice award, voted on by all those who attended the show.
Entries in the many design categories varied from the serenely beautiful to the slightly off-beat, as in the toy train composition below, that was related to a much-loved story-book. 
Another whimsical arrangement that won a first prize in the design sector calling for edible materials is seen below. The container was filled with a variety of fruits and vegetables and even edible flowers.
A “fiddle” created from a gourd and assorted floral add-ons was a successful entry by River Cote in the class for children under 8 years of age. 
Much to her surprise, your blogger was awarded a trophy for her entry in the design category calling for a composition with a water feature.
Among the many others who helped to make the day a success were Jocelyn Cameron,  who took second and third place in several sectors of the design class;

And our gracious hostesses at the tea table – Jane Wilkins and Barb Munroe – both of whom provided service with a smile all afternoon.

And to close off the selection of photos from this year’s Flower Show and Tea, one last overview of a group of entries placed in the “Breakfast in Bed” sector.
A reminder that a complete list of winners in all classes is available by clicking on the heading Flower Show Results, under Events in the side-bar to the right of the blog.
