Call for air, call for green … In 2020, confinement has made this need to recharge one’s batteries in the heart of nature more visible than ever. As an intuition, the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire hosted the theme “Mother Earth” for its International Garden Festival that the lucky ones were able to visit this summer. In the fall, he also highlighted floral design in the service of beauty.
If the former owners of the Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire, the Prince and Princess Henri-Amédée de Broglie, collected rare plants and other exotic orchids from the end of the 19th century, they would certainly be delighted by the event “When to flower is an art “.
It is now in a more ephemeral form that the tradition is perpetuated at the Center d’Arts et de Nature of the estate. Last October, the rooms of the castle were taken over by floral designers, the best workers in France and no less than twenty-five apprentices from the Paris Florists’ School. For five days, Gilles Pothier, Pascal Mutel, Charline Pritscaloff and the students of the Ecoledes florists in Paris sublimated the castle with exceptional floral arrangements.
After a first edition in 2019, this second opus sets the bar high for 2021! www.domaine-chaumont.fr
