May 2022 Members Food and Flowers evening

It was a very different meeting this month. Our theme was the Royal Jubilee and we were welcomed by a lovely floral crown  on the reception desk. Then it was ‘hands on’ for members as we all made pave designs using  regal colours including as much red, white and blue as possible.  They were all so different  using  so many different flowers and foliage with some people relying totally  on their garden for their resources   – just an indication of the variation in material  – we saw lily of the valley , bluebells, gerberas, carnations, cerinthe, roses,  grape hyacinths, may blossom. There was just as much variation in the foliage.

All the designs were then put together to make a Royal Pavement which made a beautiful display in the centre of the hall – our photographs do not really do it justice.

Following the practical activity we enjoyed  a  delicious bring and share supper provided by members  and  quizzes ( including  plant identification) as well as more time to be sociable and get to know each other.

 It was lovely, relaxed evening which really highlighted the creativity and talent within our club with  experienced   arrangers  willing to help, encourage and support those less confident and less experienced.   An excellent evening in good company which hopefully achieved our aim  of  ‘fun, friendship and flowers’.

Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to make the evening such a success.

Just a few pictures to give an indication of the evening are included below.
