Our young people shine at the flower arranging competition

At the county flower arranging competition, young people from our SOS Youth Facility Osijek achieved outstanding results. Valentina Benović won 2nd place; Gabrijela Šerf won 1st place and qualified for the next round of the competition.

At the national competition Flora, Gabrijela’s ideas and work shone among 9 competitors from all parts of Croatia. She won 2nd place.
The themes of the practical session were “Girl’s Bouquet” and “Flowers in the Hair”. Despite Gabrijela’s creativity and skill, gained through 3 years of practical training in the Fantazija flower shop, she admitted to having terrible stage fright, and she barely managed to overcome it. She designed and made a formal dome-shaped bouquet, with combined roses, trachelium, wax flowers and bear grass filler. She decorated her headband with miniature roses and wax flowers.
This success opens up new competitions and opportunities for Gabrijela. Her next challenges are the International Flower Arrangement Show in Umag and Flora Art in Zagreb.
