Floral art by the region's top designers will be on display in Levin this weekend.

The My Fair Lady in Flowers "floral extravaganza" will showcase work by members of nine floral art clubs throughout the Manawatu and Whanganui regions, and the Horowhenua Floral Art and Garden Club.

All are competing for the New Zealand Floral Art Society's Designer of the Year regional title and a place in the national finals in Gisborne in March.

As well as the individual entries, each club will present a decorated archway and school groups will have designs on display.

Horowhenua club committee member Mary Mackay said the event will appeal to anyone with an appreciation for art and creativity.

"Floral art has moved on from just using flowers in designs and now includes wires, paper, manipulated leaves and vegetables," she said.

"New techniques include wrapping, folding, weaving and a host of other innovative ideas."

On both days this weekend there will be floral art demonstrations at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. The "Ascot Cafe" will be set up offering Devonshire teas and other refreshments.

My Fair Lady in Flowers will be in the Levin Memorial Hall this Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm. Entry, $5 adults, students and children free.
