Sidney florist wins at Government House’s B.C. Blooms

Fiorenza Classic Flowers' arrangement named best in show

One of Sidney’s florists won first place and best in show at the B.C. Blooms contest held at Government House on June 22.

Corona Jaskier of Fiorenza Classic Flowers entered an arrangement into the fantasmagorical and effervescent categories.

“I decided to enter without actually knowing much about it. The fantasmagorical category was the one that spoke to me the most and I’m so glad I did it,” said Jaskier. “It was unreal to win and I couldn’t have been more excited when I found out.”

Entrants in the show were asked to make arrangements which didn’t exceed a set height and width and arrangements were assessed by floral art judges using World Association of Flower Arrangers standards.
