Anna gave the club a presentation this past

Tuesday which was enlightening to all!

From the more traditional high cylinder floral

design with hydrangeas, ornamental kale, and a

variety of wild flowers, to the Hostess Gifts of

small cut-out pumpkins containing plants,

Anna provided helpful hints on how to use every

day greenery to make a stunning floral statement. 

Using a ceramic container, she artistically placed three flowers to represent

Heaven, Man and Earth in the Ikebana design. 




For the silk arrangement she utilized an old spray painted lantern to which she added hydrangea, berries, ivy, dusty miller and tea lights to make a centerpiece perfect even for a wedding. 






The final presentation was a round, lined bushel basket. Using floral foam to build height, she added a 6 inch cypress and surrounded it with 4 inch mums, ornamental kale and pumpkins, finished with a raffia bow and perfect for your front door step!








And the best part came when we raffled them off and 6 lucky people went home with these beautiful creations!
