Bench Designs

Bench (or table) designs are the most common way to stage floral art for competition.

When planning your design, particularly the colours, make sure you have read the schedule carefully to know what covering will be on the bench. This way you can ensure either to contrast or blend your base of the design for impact.

In this section you will find designs that have been staged on a show bench. This generally means they are judged from the front, sometimes the front and sides.

All have a width space limitation (often 70cm) but no height or depth restriction other than the actual bench and ceiling of the show area.
