Move over Chelsea Flower Show, the next biggest date in the floral calendar is Fleuramour, one of the leading global art and floral events in the world held each year in the beautiful Alden Biesen Castle in Bilzen, Belgium. ECT Travel, pioneers for bespoke floral travel in Europe, and beyond, is delighted to announce it will be offering tours to the prestigious Fleuramour event that takes place from 22 – 24 September 2017.
Fleuramour is renowned for showcasing the newest trends in floral design and floral arrangements as displayed by some of the world’s most innovative florists and designers. The eye-wateringly beautiful displays are spread out in the grounds and 35 rooms of the stunning Alden Biesen Castle in Bilzen, situated in northern Belgium. The weekend kicks off with an incredible floral fashion show with gorgeous gowns expertly created from flowers as well as “Hat Day” where guests attend with hats and headdresses made from flowers.
Each year, the displays revolve around a theme, with 2016’s being “Fire, Air, Water, Earth” giving the designers plenty of inspiration for thinking out of the box and going big and bold with their designs. 2017’s theme is yet to be confirmed but promises to be one that encourages even more bursts of bloom and colour for each of the flower displays, whether it be a table setting or a blooming chapel full of bridal and floral displays. There is a spectacle that will bedazzle floral fanatics of every age and background.
With over 100 designers flocking to Fleuramour from all around the world, including Lana Bates, Moniek Vanden Berghe, Hitomi Gilliam, Tomas de Bruyne and Erika Oldenhof, travelling to Fleuramour shows off countless displays that are a feast for the senses.
Last year over 5000 David Austin wedding roses were used by European Master Certification (EMC) students and instructors to create a breathtaking display that filled the air with a gorgeous heady scent. For those excited by new varieties of flowers, they can look forward to spectacular designs featuring never-before-seen blooms.
