The Cairo 360 Editors’ Choice Awards 2015: Floristry & Floral Design Award Winners
Let’s be honest; the popularity of floristry is very much dependent on special occasions and Egypt isn’t exactly a country that finds value in the glory of botany.
While many will spend thousands on flowers and floral design for weddings and other overblown occasions, but a handful of shops in Cairo have not only succeeded in producing quality results, but reinvigorating the pleasures of a vase of flowers or a simple plant, as well as pushing the envelope when it comes to the under-appreciated art of floral design.
Congratulations to all the winners!
One of the lesser-known winners in this category, Fleuringy takes less-is-more approach t floristry but uses props and other additional pieces to great effect, especially when there’s an occasion to celebrate,
Sporting a colourful display of fresh flowers, Flower Power’s reputation has seen the still fairly new brand find its way into the city’s biggest hotels and there’s a general light and airy aesthetic to their work.
A hub for gardening enthusiasts that sells everything from trees to herbs, fruits, vegetables and shrubs, Khadra is one of the most unique shops in Cairo and has championed green-living since its opening to great effect.
Not just a flower shop, Touch of Flower’s core business is actually event planning that features everything from light fixtures and centrepieces, to dance floor installations and even a entertainment booking. Despite their wide scope their floral design is among the best.
Everything from candles and flowers, to a fully fledged and comprehensive event planning business that can take care of everything from researching themes to booking venues, photographers and scheduling entertainment.
