Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Bloom in the Bay

Bay of Plenty Floral Art Society

The Bay of Plenty Area of Floral Art will once again be holding their Designer of the Year competition in conjunction with the 2022 Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival. This two-yearly event brings the Floral Designers of the BOP together to compete for the prestigious title of Designer of the Year and other competition classes. A Floral Fiesta will be the overall floral art theme and will feature a celebration design for the Platinum Jubilee, a paper extravaganza, and a masquerade mask display. All will be on display in the Sir Tristram Lounge. The Floral Art Village outside will include large designs using Aotearoa New Zealand indigenous foliage creating a pathway into the village. The individual club designs will decorate the avocado tree and other beautiful designs will be scattered around this area. 10-minute demonstrations on various floral art ideas will occur every hour in the Floral Art Village, along with other floral art concepts.
