Congratulations to our florist Maryline!

Maryline entered the World Skills UK Floristry Competition last week for people with under 7 years of experience and came second in the London heat, losing out by only 2 points for a broken leaf!

Arriving at the show at 5am, Maryline dedicated herself to perfecting her designs, which Worlds Skills UK had categorized into table arrangement, bridal bouquet and corsages/garlands. “The main issue here was the time limit,” Maryline said, after the competition. “At work, we have time to switch things around if we’re not happy with them and replace broken leaves, but here I just didn’t have the time! I ripped the flower in the corsage when we had 5 minutes to go – sadly, I knew there was no time to rewire everything.”
She came 1st in the group for table arrangements, 2nd for a bridal bouquet and 3rd for her corsage and finished overall in 2nd place!

Well done Maryline, we’re all very proud of you!
