Mother’s Day celebration

One of the busiest days for the Flower Market has finished for another year and it was fantastic to see support for this year’s Mother’s Day Campaign.
Check out the beautiful Instagram images below posted by florists @artstemsonlygon and @mademoisellefleur who utilised the #bloomsformum hashtag.
We’d love to hear your feedback regarding this year’s campaign – send your comments to submissions@melbournemarket.com.au.

Vote in the Mystery Box Challenge

Don’t forget to support the floristry students from Melbourne Polytechnic who’ve taken part in the Melbourne Flower Market Mystery Box Challenge.

It’s been a great opportunity for students to be exposed to the Market as well as introducing the Market community to the Melbourne Polytechnic floristry programs and training.

The students have embraced the project as you can see from the images below.

Their mystery box creations will be on display tomorrow and we invite you to vote for the arrangement you feel is most creative.

There will be coloured tokens representing each of the floral displays – place your chosen token into the box and the student with the most tokens will be named the winner of the challenge.
