Come and visit the exhibition and be amazed! At this year’s special edition of Fleuramour, talented florists from Belgium, The Netherlands and neighbouring countries will surprise you with amazing show stoppers. We’ll already give you a little preview of some promising designs!
1. Court of Honour
Do you remember the magnificent fairy tale carousel of the Russian Natalia Zizko at Fleuramour 2017? Or the planet bursting with flowers in 2019? This year, as always, visitors eyes are focused on the Court of Honour. It will be a special edition, so we will also have a special concept!
The talented Belgian designers Viky Vangampelaere and Mieke Hoflack have been a great team at the Fleuramour flower festival for five years. This year they are once again joining forces and will transform the Court of Honour into a fairytale flower pond.
‘We feel extremely honoured to be able to create a floral design for the Courtyard of Honour. It will be a harmonious interplay of water, light and different types of flowers. Roses, dahlias, chrysanthemums, carnations… Each has a strong character of its own, but together they form a beautiful whole’, says floral designer Viky Vangampelaere.
2. Flower Bridge to the Castle
The Belgian floral designer Martijn Schevernels specialises in very trendy wedding and event floristry. This year he will be showing his talent at Fleur Floral Fashion by decorating the majestic bridge over the water to the castle. He will immerse the visitors in a unique atmosphere of scents and colours, and let you enjoy everything that has to do with flowers!
3. Floral Art x Table Art by Max Hurtaud
Max Hurtaud is a worldwide master florist who expresses all his feelings through flowers. Being a master floral artist means mastering different skills like teaching, demonstrating, making floral events, flower exhibitions,… But the most important is creating. Creating something unique and beautiful for everyone.
This year at Fleur Floral Fashion, Max Hurtaud presents a floral decoration inspired by the combination of autumn – his favourite season – and a late summer wedding. ‘Flowers are very important for all of us, for every occasion. Flowers feed us with their energies. That’s why we like them. This castle deserves art, but flowers too. My floral decoration will be an invitation to take a seat and to enjoy your time analysing all beauties inside the design’, he explains.
4. Floral Art Gallery by the Fleur Créatif Designers
The Fleur Créatif and Fleur@Home designers cannot be missed at the event! They will unleash their creativity on the theme ‘A Castle Deserves Art’ and will present spectacular floral arrangements that mimic an art exhibition.
Meet these FLEUR floral designers at Fleur Floral Fashion 2021: Moniek Vanden Berghe, Rita Van Gansbeke, Charlotte Bartholomé, Annick Mertens, Sören Van Laer, Aymeric Chaouche, Martine Meeuwssen and Chantal Post. Each of them will work around a specific artist or art movement.
5. Blue Thistles at the Reuschenberg Hall
Several students and educational programs will also be present. The floral art students of Annick Mosconi will decorate the Reuschenberg Hall, one of the largest rooms at Fleur Floral Fashion. The sketch of their creation with beautiful blue thistle flowers already makes us enthusiastic! Would you like to see, smell and admire this amazing floral designs in real life?

6. Interactive Rainbow Installing
This amazing flower project ‘Protect the Future’ (on the photo below) was made by Ioachim Erema for Fleuramour 2019. One of the best works in that year’s theme ‘Back to the Future’. So our expectations for 2021 are high!
Ioachim tells us a bit more about this year’s design: ‘The installation will be built on a rectangular, iron frame with a length of 4 meters. From the top part of the structure, lots of strings of wool will be hanging down for the whole 4m length. The strings will be in amazing rainbow colours, just like the flowers. On these wool strings, I will add lots of flower tubes, filled with coloured water.’ Sounds very promising!
7. The Beauty of Flowers in a Moving Table Decoration
At Fleuramour 2019, floral artist Kristina Rimiené surprised the visitors with her fascinating ‘door to the future’: a rotating, circular floral design in front of the castle of Alden Biesen. It was a real eye-catcher at the event!
We are happy to announce that we may welcome Kristina Rimiené again this year at our special edition! She gets to work with different varieties of Delphinium and other beautiful greens. With these materials, she will create a moving table decoration that alights your every sense. Exciting!
And there is more!
? Friday September 24th is floral hat day at Fleur Floral Fashion. Visitors wear a self-designed floral hat that can be as big, small or crazy as you want. Everyone with a floral hat is treated to a free glass of cava and a has a chance to win great prizes!
? There will be delightful belly dance acts on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of September.
? You can quietly stroll among the lovely pop-up shops with everything from flowers to fashion. This year, a lot of pop-up shops are located outside the event. So you have enough time to visit them all, because the time slots only apply to your visit to the event.
? At the same time, the town hall of Bilzen (Belgium) will be colourfully decorated with a floral jewel. Definitely worth a detour!
