There were lots of baubles, lots of silver birch, lots of glitter and lots of laughter during our Christmas demonstration ‘ Joyous Noel’ with Kathy Stangaard! Add to this some lovely Christmas music and of course beautiful flower arrangements; a very enjoyable evening was had by all and we went home in a relaxed but festive mood – thank you Kathy. Thank you also for allowing us to share pictures of the arrangements.
The designs were varied in shape and colour resulting in a beautiful, final stage display. There was a wide variety of both foliage and flowers. Flowers included roses, chrysanthemums, germini, clematis, anthuriums, carnations and a tropical selection. There was traditional foliage associated with Christmas such as blue spruce , pine, and silver birch (coloured or glittered) together with bergenia, fatsia, viburnum, aspidistra, palms, ruscus and pittosporum (to name a few!). Accessories included cones, a candle, and of course, baubles. There were many happy raffle winners.
Thank you to everyone who generously donated to and then participated in our successful ‘hamper raffle’ the proceeds of which go to our charity.
We have had a varied and interesting year; demonstrations, workshops and visits – thank you to everyone who has worked hard in any way to make this happen. A very Merry Christmas to all and best wishes for a Happy and Healthy 2019 – we look forward to seeing you at the AGM on February 5th.
