Belgium: Thousands of Avalanche roses used at Fleuramour

From Friday 25th to Monday 28th September 2015, the 20th Anniversary Edition of Fleuramour, Passion for flowers will take place in the beautiful Alden Biesen Commandery in Bilzen (B). This magnificent castle with its huge terrain, an English park of 43 hectares with sleek symmetrical flowerbeds in the French style, is a real attraction. Combine this with a unique floral event and you’ll find yourself in a veritable fairy-tale. A wonderful day out for young and old.

During Fleuramour, the largest international floral event, the Alden Biesen Commandery will be filled to the brim with a floral spectacular; following months of preparation, over 100 floral designers from home and abroad will dress the spaces inside the castle with tens of thousands of flowers. Each year over 15,000 visitors make the journey to admire this floral marvel.

This year Fleuramour will be celebrating its 20th edition in style. It will be a celebratory edition with even more flowers and floral experiences than ever before. The central theme for this year has been revealed to be: CELEBRATION!

For this celebratory edition of Fleuramour, world-renowned designer Tomas De Bruyne will transform the castle into a sublime experience using thousands of unique Avalanche roses from Meijer Roses. Rhythm, balance, contrast and proportion will be important ingredients for shaping the festivities. Along with a good many helping hands, Tomas will bring to life an unforgettable creation.

Along with students from EMC, Tomas and Hitomi will show how important design is within the flora industry. Together they will host fascinating demonstrations and workshops. The EMC students will give all interested fans an insight into the fascinating education of the creative design process.

In the Commandery church, Stijn Simaeys will open up a dream world to you with his exciting creations; spiriting you away to a fairy-tale scene packed with summertime flowers, a world in which anything is possible and where your imagination can run wild.

As is the case each year, Fleuramour will be holding a wide range of competitions, this year’s participants will be working around the theme of ‘Celebration’ and there will be no lack of the traditional bridal bouquet competition and centrepieces.

Creative visitors wearing a floral hat will be offered a glass of cava and be in with the chance of winning a prize. Let other visitors gaze in wonder and admiration at your creation as you parade up and down the catwalk!
