AVery well deserved! That arrangement has a lot of life to it, movement, like the tendrils would rustle in a breeze if there were one. And the vase is sugar as well, no? Pretty neat.

Congratulations!  Well done.  Is this the entry where the first teapot you make broke and you had to make another?  Love the sweet peas :)

Yes that right, I managed to get the teapot remade but not decorated in the way I had planned. But I think the plain t,pot works better as a ll the attention is on the flowers ;)

Thanks. :) believe or not part of the feedback I received from the judges was to get my flower paste even thinner. So I think I need to change the paste I use.

I didn't get to go to this one :-( but took my brother (22 year old mechanical engineering student) to Birmingham and when entering the flower area, he said, "i thought this was about cake stuff....what are florists doing bringing flowers here?".  He had no idea that they weren't real - stunning and congratulations!

Congratulations. It took reading through the thread to realize the flowers aren't real.

 

Did I read everything right? Did you make the teapot as well?

 

It's all gorgeous!
