Whether you are looking for a small gesture such as a single flower or posy or a lavish floral display for a special event, Arena Flowers provides for all eventualities and occasions throughout Oxfordshire.
Did you know that Oxfordshire county’s symbolic flower is Fritillaria meleagris, also known as snake’s head, chess flower or guinea-hen lily?
It is a species of flowering plant in the Liliaceae family and was selected as part of the wild flora conservation charity Plantlife's 2002 ""County Flowers"" campaign.
It is a popular garden plant but is now rare to see in the wild, except at a few sites. They are particularly prevalent in Oxfordshire, seen in the meadows at Magdalen College at Oxford University, and at the Oxfordshire village of Ducklington, with the local church St Bartholomew holding a festival each year known as ‘Firtillary Sunday' for people to come and see flowers in bloom.
Flowers@Oxford is held at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford from 22-24 August 2014. During the three day flower event in Oxfordshire stars of the flower arranging and floristry world will be in Oxford. For a £35 day ticket you will have access to the college buildings, decorated in blooms and floral decorations, showcasing the very best of floral design and giving accesses to a wide-range of demonstrations, competitions and trade stands to immerse yourself in everything floral.
There will also be competitions running over the weekend; it doesn’t matter if you are a florist, or even a junior or student florist, a floral designer or a flower arranger, you can enter any of the competitions because they are open to everyone and your arrangements will be assessed by a panel of judges. Entry is £25 and any additional entries into other competitions is £15. There are cash prizes to be won up to £150 and work that is considered to be most innovative will be presented with the Carol Firmstone Contemporary Floral Design Trophy.
There is also a special Wedding Marquee, featuring work by top up-and-coming British designers promoting British grown flowers in their work. So if you are looking for inspiration for your wedding day, special event or occasion and the international floral designers at Flowers@Oxford have inspired you, Arena Flowers have everything at our fingertips to make those inspirations a reality.
