The world class alternative floral art show is back, this year for its 13th Anniversary. Produced by Cadogan in association with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), it will transform the streets of Chelsea from the 21 to 26 May with breath-taking floral displays. The annual competition has grown dramatically each year with Chelsea’s best retailers, restaurants and hotels adorning themselves with creative designs to compete for the coveted awards.
This year’s theme is ‘Summer of Love’, inspired by the Royal Wedding and the 60’s/70’s cultural revolution – from the Palace to the King’s Road! The competition showcases floral displays reflecting the participating retailers’ interpretation of the theme in their
own unique style.
This year’s ‘Best Floral Display’ winner is Monica Vinader, with ‘Highly Commended’ awarded to Harry’s Dolce Vita and the ‘Innovation Award’ given to Lucas Hugh. The ‘People’s Champion’ crown also goes to Harry’s Dolce Vita, with Kiehl’s since 1951 close runner up.
The displays have been judged by an expert panel, with the winners being announced on Tuesday 22 May. The People’s Champion Award will be chosen by open voting via this website – voting is now live! Voting will close at midnight on Thursday 24 and the winner announced on Friday 25 May.Vote
