Everything about this hanging installation is so perfect.

Flowers To Carry

Christine Campbell from Wild at Heart Flowers

I have chosen this bouquet because it’s the one I want to carry! You can tell that every single bloom in the arrangement was carefully selected for pride of place..
The beautiful, trailing jasmine frame, the dancing ranunculus, dusty roses, delicate anemones & other wonderfully wild delights. You can tell a lot of love and care has been taken while creating this little master piece.

Flowers To Wear

Melinda Brown from Wildflower Wanderings

I wish this was mine to wear for Melbourne Cup! I am usually such a sucker for colour, but this golden creation is such a stand out piece. It’s a unique update on the flower crown and I applaud the concept! Very clever design.

Thanks Holly – no doubt you’ve made 3 florists very excited indeed!

Come back tomorrow folks as we reveal our next 3 judge’s selections!
