To celebrate the excitement of the Miss France 2017 beauty pageant which will take place in the Arena theatre in Montpellier on Saturday, December 17th , 50 florists participated in a floral design contest. Demanding artistic abilities and the highest standard of operational craftsmanship the Victory Bouquet was created for the successor to Iris Mittenaere, Miss France 2016.
A panel of expert judges, including representatives of the Emova Group, faced the daunting task of determining which five bouquets would move on to the final. After much deliberating the judges announced the following finalists/shops: Rapid’Flore Talant, Rapid’Flore Bourg-en-Bresse, Rapid’Flore Saint-Médard-en-Jalles, Rapid’ Flore Lyon and Rapid’Flore Nivolas-Vermelle.
Miss France fans will choose the grand prize winner as they can cast their votes online on Rapid’Flore’s Facebook page until 5 December.
The Emova Group (formally Monceau Fleurs) has 354 retail outlets in France and sells its flowers and plants under brand names such as Rapid’Flore, Monceau and Happy.
