• 2020 Tablescape Design Contest

    2020 TABLESCAPE CONTEST - March 13, 2020 from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
    The entry fee is $35 and must be included with the Annual Floral Design Show registration. It must be received by MARCH 6, 2020. NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE PERMITTED.

    Contest Description:

    Tablescaping is defined as the act of creatively and intentionally arranging a tabletop so that it conveys a specific theme, mood, or experience.

    Each tablescape entry will be designed on a 60” round table for 8 guests. Each contestant will be provided a 60” round table with a plain white tablecloth as a base. Contestants must provide all other items for their tablescape including flowers, materials, props, and table linens. To keep with the conference theme, “Inspiration”, contestants should find something that inspires them (for example, a sculpture, picture, something from nature). Designers are given 2 hours to create a tablescape which reflects their inspirational piece. The inspirational piece will be displayed next to the tablescape on a high top provided by ISFA.

    Prizes: A panel of judges will determine the winners.

    First place - receives a cash prize based on the entry fees collected and a certificate;

    Second place - receives full registration to the ISFA 2021 Annual Floral Design Show and a certificate; and
