    Most flower shows limit height of designs to 30” or 36” or 42”.
    It is important to fill the space you are assigned in the class which is one of the challenges.
    Another question answered.
    When I was at the Philadelphia Garden Show a few years ago, I was amazed at the size of the competitive entries and wondered how the size was determined and desired features decided.
    I see PHS which is on now, June 5-13, has gone outside this year which should be especially interesting to see.

    OMG. I want one. One of my favorite color combinations, and so harmonious yet whimsical.

    If that's what you're doing with your extra time, it's time well spent!

    I show this only to illustrate how great some pieces work in competitive floral design.

    Recognize this metal sculpture? I painted it blue for the class “Monet’s flower Garden” where it represents the swirling pools of water and round forms in Monet’s water lily series.

    Now this image is part of a virtual flower show held by the North American Lily Society.

    And now, I will have to retire it for a while because I used it in the last real flower show before Covid shut down, I used it as a demo at flower show school, and now this. Too many judges have seen this sculpture and they will recognize it as my work.

    Well done! Movement and good color placement, IMO.

    That is unique. May I ask how you keep the flowers fresh for a show? Lillies in particular are thirsty beings and wilt fairly quickly.

    These have tubes of water at the back.

    But I skipped on that since all I had to do is take a photograph and then it was over. For a real show I probably would not use so many hydrangeas because they are tricky to keep hydrated. Lilies are good in that once they are hydrator they will stay there for 24+ hours no problem with 0 water source.
