The Design Spec Was….



First Prize $500.

Other prizes will also be awarded.



This Competition is open to florists or floral designers who are a member of the Professional Florists Association of NSW. Limited to the first 12 entries.

“Amongst the Trees”

A client has approached you to create floral designs for their 21st birthday, that is taking place at a treetop restaurant in the rain forest.


The Competition will include 3 items:

1. An elaborate table design for the round guest tables that seat 8.

2. An elaborate wired design for the two-tiered birthday cake (the cake will be supplied)

3. A display of flowers and foliages for the entrance of the restaurant.
Fresh plant materials must dominate each design.

There is no pre preparation of fresh plant material allowed.

Any embellishments made of non-horticultural material may be made prior to the Competition.

The cake supplied will be only foam, with a white fondant icing. Please remember that the judges will be inspecting your design and as such, your design mustn’t pierce the cake icing.

A picture of the cake will be provided closer to the day.

All other materials and props must be supplied by the Competitor,  including staging of your table design.

Gluing is permitted but note: there are limited power outlets available and access to one cannot be guaranteed. Please remember that all electrical equipment must have a current safety tag.

The space allowed for your display will be 1.5 metres square with no height restriction and will be viewed from the front and sides (please be aware of safety issues).


Noxious weeds declared by Auburn Council are prohibited from being used in any Exhibits at the Sydney Royal Flower & Garden Show.


The time allowed for the Competition is four hours.

All Competitors must be ready at 8:30am SHARP for a briefing and the Competition will start at 9am and finish at 1pm.

There will be a trestle table provided for each of the Competitors to work on by the RAS. All rubbish must be removed by the Competitors and the area left clean on completion of the Competition.

Competitors will be allowed 15 minutes to clean up and remove all equipment after the Competition has ceased.

Your Exhibit will be left on public display for four days and during this time it will be maintained by the RAS and may be moved to another. As a result your fresh flowers need to be in appropriate containers and or medium.

The Competition will be judged in accordance with The Royal Horticultural Society Competition rules by a panel of judges and their decision is final.

Any queries regarding the Schedule or clarification of definitions of horticultural materials are to be addressed to:
