A few members went to Broxbourne on November 5th. After the AGM and an appetising lunch we were entertained by ‘Take Three’ – Ian Buxton, Lee Berrill and Alan Smith. In addition to their wonderful floral art, there was humour and a real theatrical presentation – they started the demonstration as The Three Wise Men and finished as The Three Degrees!
The arrangements were based on Christmas including We Three Kings, Advent, Deck the Halls , I Saw Three Ships, Jingle Bells, Winter Wonderland and Star of Bethlehem.
Each individual arrangement was beautiful but the variety of shape, foliage, flowers, containers, Christmas sparkle and accessories produced an absolutely stunning stage display. (I’m afraid we were too engrossed in the demonstration and performance to take detailed notes about each arrangement!)
The audience gave them a well deserved standing ovation at the end of the demonstration.
Just a couple of photographs below give a flavour of the afternoon.
