A PASSION for floral arrangements has won Jenny Do two awards at this year’s Perth Royal Flower Show competition.
The 36-year-old owner of Warwick Grove Florist won first place for her table arrangement and second place for her bridal bouquet using silk flowers.
“The structure for the table arrangement took me several days to build and used a spider web wire technique, which is quite difficult and time consuming,” Ms Do said.
“It also took three hours on the competition day just to arrange the flowers.
“Most competitors bring in their completed item but due to the size and complexity, this was not possible for mine.”
This was Ms Do’s first Perth Royal Show competition and she was thrilled with comments she had received from the judges, other competitors and visitors.
“It’s been an exciting couple months for me as I also recently won the Florist of the Year WA 2016 competition run by Interflora and will be representing WA in the national competition next year,” she said.
Ms Do is also a volunteer at the Stirling Silver Program where she teaches flower arrangement classes.
Her first workshop starts on October 7 in Inglewood.
Ashby resident Lesley Parkin also took out two awards, winning the wedding bouquet with alternative flowers and wedding bouquet with fresh flowers categories.
Third place in both categories went to Kallaroo resident Nahid Mazan and Tapping resident Renata Ulumbekova respectively.
Tina Andrzejaczek, of Duncraig, came second in the table arrangement category, while Hocking and Hawker Park primary schools won in the garden produce section.
