The Preliminary Rounds - The first event, Designers Choice is themed "Flowers on the Orient".  Contestants will complete a design up to 1.2 metres deep and wide and 2.25 metres high within 2 hours. 

 

On the same day they will have their artistic flair tested again with a  "Surprise Item" which they will complete in just over an hour.  This is an exciting test of how spontaneous these designers from around the world can be with only 15 minutes to view the various items presented to them and create something amazing. 

 

The following day they will commence with a table arrangement  "Green Tea for Two".  A round table will be provided so they can create their masterpiece in 2 hours time with a maximum height of 2 metres. 

 

Event Four is a bridal bouquet with no size restrictions but obviously the "Oriental Pearl" bride must still be able to carry the designers creation. 

 

The top 10 competitors from these rounds will be challenged again on their creative flair with two more "Surprise items" to select the grand winner.  Under severe constraints of time, and with competitors having only a matter of minutes to assess what items they have to work with, these challenge pieces always produce an amazing array of dramatic designs.

 

In addition to the dramatic World Cup competition, a floral spectacular presented as a full stage production with music, lights, costumes and models will showcase flamboyant floristry in a stunning and visual extravaganza.
