RHS Chelsea 2017 Florist of the Year - 22 May 2017
Having qualified with one of the top 16 florist scores in the UK heats for the RHS Chelsea Florist of the Year 2017, Jillian traveled to London for the finals which are held in the Royal Hospital grounds.
Theme 2017 was “Summer Skies” and all finalists all produced a kite made from floral product.
Jillian, as on the previous three trips to the finals, was once again the only Scottish florist represented and so flew the flag for Scotland!.
Jillian and husband Stephen made sure the Saturday weddings at Ballathie House Hotel and Strathallan Castle are well looked after before setting off on their road trip to London with their van fully loaded with the kite structure and the required flowers, kindly supplied and sponsored by J Van Vliet (Zwetzloot).
Once at their apartment in London the work began to create Jillian’s entry. A long day on Sunday saw the piece develop as far a possible, ready for gentle transport to the venue and placed within the marquee at the famous RHS Chelsea Royal Hospital Grounds for the final touches throughout Sunday Evening.
Judging was done over night and the winners announced on the morning of Monday 23rd which is also the day that the Queen visited to admire all the entries.
Jillian made herself available on a daily basis to talk to the visitors and make sure her piece remained in top condition until the Wednesday night when the kite was be removed and carefully secured back in our van ready for the journey home.
Although the lovely weather forecast for the London venue tied in with the Summer Skies theme, it did bring with it extra challenges for Jillian, as keeping her product in the very best competition quality was a challenge in itself and is testament to the quality of product provided by her sponsor J Van Vliet (Zwetzloot) along with Jillian’s years of experience that kept things at their very best.
Everyone was updated on Facebook throughout the journey and the experience shared as the competition progressed.
A huge thank you went out to the Something Special team who were looking after the home front in their bosses absence and keeping everyone informed from our Blairgowrie shop.
Jillian was delighted to return home with a Silver medal to add to her collection of a GOLD and a SILVER GILT from 2012 and 2014. A huge vote of gratitude everyone for their kind wishes and support. throughout the event.
Well done Jillian it's a Silver medal to add to her RHS Chelsea collection!
