What Type of Designs Will Be Created?

The contest is based on two amazing categories: wedding work and everyday design. These are two very versatile categories, given that garden roses are considered one of the most versatile types of flowers out there, leaving you plenty of space to get fully creative and embellish the decor piece that'll take you all the way to rose success. Plus, the advantage is that garden roses have ruffled petals swirling around different centers to form a rounded bloom, which will let you explore your design skills even more.
