Meet Our Prom King & Queen for 2017! #GFPROM2017

Posted by Sun, May 21, 2017 @ 11:00 AM

Della Gillespie Mendenhal;We started this contest in 2011 as a fun way to us to see the end result with our Prom flowers. We enjoy making them so much and love seeing students pick up their flowers but hardly ever get to see these guys and gals all dolled up wearing said flowers! I didn't even know if anyone would bother with entering the contest! Honestly, every years as I print the fliers for this, I wonder if we'll get any contestants this year. But year after year, students surprise me with lots of entries and tons of support from friends and family! So, I want to thank our contestants from this year and from years past, for your support in Gillespie Florists by choosing us for your flower provider and for pleasantly surprising me each passing year with your participation!  

We had some serious competition this year! With more entrants than ever, it was exhilarating to see all the positive comments and "likes" from friends and family of contestants! 

Prom goers only needed to post their picture on our Facebook Place Page or they could use #GFPROM2017 on Instagram or twitter wearing our flowers! We then asked our social media followers to "Like" their favorite picture or make a positive comment about it to determine the winner. 

We tally all likes and comments from the original post from the contestant as well as the picture we post in the King & Queen album. 

We had several prom goers enter but there can be only one winner! 

 

And the Winner is...

Olivia Carnagua‎ & Aaron Raymond won with a total of 227 likes/comments! 

Olivia and Aaron each get a $25.00 gift card to Gillespie Florists and Olivia will be crowned with a tiara and flowers!
