Culinary art meets floral flair at bouquet competition

The Garden Club of Monaco is hosting the International Bouquets Competition at the Terrasses of the Monte-Carlo Casino, where participants will show off their floral skills to create stunning arrangements under the theme ‘Culinary Art in the World’.  

Chaired by Caroline, Princess of Hanover, the Garden Club of Monaco is hosting the 52nd edition of the International Bouquets Competition on 16th and 17th October.

The event is being held on the Terrasses du Casino de Monte-Carlo, where competitors will transform the already stunning venue into a wonderland of flower arrangements open to the public.

Two juries will vote on the masterpieces of ingenuity and creativity put forth. The first is a “special” jury chaired by the Princess of Hanover and the other is the official jury comprised of judges who are experts in floral arts.

Over a hundred competitors will take part in the event under the theme ‘Culinary Art in the World’, choosing one of six categories to work their magic with blooms and let their imaginations run wild.

The categories are ‘The Dishes’, which will comprise the signature plates of great chefs, gourmet compositions of flowers, fruits, vegetables, and plants; ‘Candlelight Hunt’ dinner table decorations; and a youth category for kids aged seven to 16 called ‘Street Food and Flowers’.

Additionally, there is the herbs and flavours of Provence classification, one of two categories creating large scale projects, that allows for a team of two to craft a garden paradise. The Tropical Cuisine category is the second that allows two floral artists to create scenes reminiscent of hot, sunny days and warm, balmy nights.

The public is invited to view the pieces both days. Saturday, doors are open from 5:30pm to 8pm and on Sunday from 10am to 6:30pm. Entry fee for adults is €5, children under 12 are free.

The Garden Club is a non-profit association that was created in 1968 by the late Princess Grace, a fan of roses who wanted to promote the art of flower arranging so people can better appreciate their beauty.
