The floral entries at the Port Eliot Festival featured a wide array of floral arrangements in some quirky containers.

According to The Telegraph, festival organizers encouraged entrants to create unique arrangements for the festival. Though there were some classic features, such as a marquee tent and satin roses, those participating in the event created unique pieces.

One display featured sweet peas in tin cans, while another grew daises in a thimble. Tent poles at the outdoor venue were wrapped in ivy and hydrangeas. The decorations were inspired by a wartime propaganda film set around a flower and vegetable show.

Other quirky features included a one-minute disco dance party that took place on the hour every hour, and guests dressed up in brightly colored flower-inspired outfits and hairdos.

"We're simply looking for creative imagination and a love of flowers," festival director Catherine, Lady St Germans, told the news source.

Hydrangeas make an excellent flower for both formal and informal bouquets. According to, the blossoms of this flower can be quite large and come in deep purple hues.
