The terraces of the Casino de Monte-Carlo were the venue on Saturday, October 17, for an exhibition and competition organised by the Garden Club of Monaco, chaired by HRH the Princess of Hanover.

The 52nd International Bouquets Competition brought together around fifty participants, amateurs and professionals, who came to compete in floral arrangements on the theme “Culinary art in the world”.

The official Jury, made up of judges, teachers, international authors, specialists in floral art and the special jury composed of personalities from the literary and artistic world, deliberated under the High Presidency of HRH the Princess of Hanover.

The top prize was won by a very local entrant: The winner of Category 1 – Signature dishes of the grand chefs, a free composition – was Geneviève Antona of the Garden Club of Monaco.
