THE IDEA of creating a ‘magical, enchanted wonderland’ has earned Bury St Edmunds’ florists Tudor Rose a “bouquet’ with a difference.
It came in the form of a large shield, the prize for being judged the best decorated shop window in town this Christmas in a competition run by business group Bid4Bury.
Three judges looked at windows of some 500 shops and businesses before narrowing their choice down to a shortlist of around eight or nine.
Highly commended was fashion outlet Paul Stephens in The Traverse. Owner of Tudor Rose, in Hatter Street, James Mortlock, said he was delighted to win the award and credited colleague Danny Preston.
It had a Narnia-style concept with windows decorated to give views inside the shop, in which a tree had been built.
