Alicia and I attended the awards ceremony of the 2012 Rocky Mountain Cup on March 30th. The Rocky Mountain Cup is an annual floral design competition hosted by the Floral Association of the Rockies and organized by Bea Blanc and Maggie Binet AIFD. This a great opportunity for both seasoned and the greener designer. Each designer is given the same three design challenges, same flowers, containers, and accessories. The designers bring their own tools and wealth of knowledge.
The following designers competed in the competition this year:
Cindy Anderson AIFD, PFCI- Freelance Designer
Brandalynn Capra- Lehrer’s Flowers
Franklin Mera CPF- Artistic Flowers & Gifts
Terri Pepper- Abloom
Bliss Reimers- House of Flowers
Shari Revier- Lafayette Florist
Amy Santee- Amy’s Wedding and Event Flowers
Sandi Sniff AIFD, CPF, AAF- Lafayette Florist
Molly Wedow- The Fresh Flower Market
Each designer was given the following design challenges:
Design a bridal bouquet for a mountain wedding.
Design a get well gift for a child in the hospital.
Design an entry arrangement for a 2’x3′ table for an opening night event for a theater event.
Here are the designs!
