MODESTO - This year the Stanislaus County Home & Garden Show, held at the Modesto Centre Plaza, had something new to excite show goers with. In addition to the always popular home & garden vendors, the show held its first floral design competition.
Local florists were invited to create floral designs of their choice and display them at the show. The designs were judged by floral design industry professionals and were popular with show visitors young and old alike.
First place was won by "Nature's own Florist" out of Modesto. "Hart Floral", also of Modesto, took home the 2nd place award while "Twigs & Stems" won the 3rd place or "Bronze" award.
With this first floral design competition being a great success, Central Valley residents are looking forward to upcoming Metro Exposition Home & Garden Shows that will be featuring similar floral design competitions.
