Tamás Mezőffy is the official FTD World Cup 2019 competitor for Hungary. He was born and raised in Hungary in the countryside east of the capital on the biggest lake in Europe, Lake Balaton. He first learned about floristry in horticultural school at the age of 14 and decided within the first week that he wanted to become a florist.
As the winner of the European Cup in 2016, many invitations from all over the world have been presented to Mezőffy to present or compete in other competitions, including the coveted FTD World Cup. He credits his success to many years of working in florist shops, attending competitions big and small, trying again even when he failed and investing a lot of time in preparing with some of his best florist colleagues.
As a child, Mezőffy had a close relationship with nature and spent a lot of time outdoors learning about plants and which species are the most beautiful each season. As a result, he has learned how to respectfully use special forms, colours and materials offered by nature.
After attending secondary horticultural school in Budapest, Mezőffy stayed in the metropolis as a resident for the past 19 years. He worked for 12 years at florist shop representing the highest professional level in Hungary creating high quality orders for celebrities, special events and weddings. He opened his own shop, but closed it after his success winning the European Cup in 2016.
In his free time, Mezőffy spends time with his puppies and enjoys being in nature hiking. He is also involved in personal training at a gym where he has found great success.
Tamás Mezőffy is representing Hungary on behalf of Interflora.
