Coffs Harbour Show 2016

Judge Anne Kennedy, CHGC Chief Steward for Sections 10 & 14 Marg Franks and Judge Anne Deveridge doing their stuff during judging on Fri 22 April 2016.

This year the benches were covered in brightly coloured fabric which was very eye-catching and looked lovely against the slate grey curtain.

Due to the season/date of show there were not the usual number of roses entered, which is always a very popular class with the public.

The Fruit and Vegetable section was well supported this year - although the school entries were down due to it being school holidays. 

The children's classes in this section and also the floral art section were a delight to see. There were some extremely imaginative creations and hope that these kids will continue to enter the show in future years.

The honey classes were better supported this year with most classes with entries. The frames and huge block of beeswax were amazing!

There were two florist businesses support the show this year - Freelance Flowers and Park Avenue Florist. A huge thank you to the five wonderful florists who participated from these two businesses.

Winning entry from Emma Hindmarsh (Freelance Flowers) who won the Professional Florist Competition.

Some of the detail in Emma's creation - a wonderful mix of cut flowers, succulents, bulbs, rhyzomes & foliage, just beautiful.

An interesting spin on the colour wheel, just gorgeous.

Strange how things happen - Jane had a presentation recently about pineapple fruit and ornamental pineapples. Here's one used in this stunning arrangement.

The theme for this year's show was 'Art in Bloom' - an arrangement of fresh flowers and plant materials for the Registration Table at a corporate event.

You may notice the use of paint brushes in this arrangement.

This arrangement has used an all time favourite flower of mine, stocks with beautiful Lotus leaves for effect - lovely.

CHGC wishes to thank everyone who entered in the 2016 Coffs Show. 

A very, very special thank you has to go to the CHGC Chief Steward Margaret Franks who led a wonderful band of members over the four days - set up, judging day and both days of the show itself. A job well done team!

  1. Quite informative post on the harbour show and hope it was a good one. Recently, arranged my company’s dinner party by booking one of the elegant venues for corporate events NYC. Hired a reputed party caterer and prepared good food.
