EAST PRESTON FLORAL CLUB

 

JULY 2018 MEETING

 

A massive well done and thank you to the six loyal club members who saved the day!  It was much appreciated by the whole club when Jan Mason and Maureen Hanlon, plus four Committee members, Sue Seath, Barbara Garnell, Val Adams and Sheila Cheal stepped up to the mark with only two days notice, when our demonstrator was taken ill with no replacement available.

 

The demonstration was renamed ‘Supermarket Sweep and our very talented demonstrators all used a wonderful selection of greenery from their gardens, differing in colour and texture, plus a bunch of supermarket flowers.  They produced contrasting arrangements in shape, design and colour from Jan’s striking ‘seaside theme’ of mainly yellow flowers, Barbara’s superb traditional arrangement using pink carnation, roses, gerberas and astilbe with cascading foliage, to Val’s amazing horizontal design of varying shades of mauve through to purple.  Maureen’s romantic theme included large white roses, Sue’s display was dramatic incorporating vibrant sunflowers and Sheila’s was a splendid array of striking vivid colours.

 

These ladies not only entertained us with their floral presentations they amused us with their lively and interesting chat.

 

What could have been a disastrous evening turned out to be wonderful and one of the best this year. It will certainly be a night remembered.
