Breaston Flower Club January Demonstration 2019

Marion’s Christmas Practice, an arrangement with a ring.

Tuesday night (11.12.2018) was the annual practice night, this year lead by our own Marion Stokes.

It was a convivial and highly productive evening which showcased the talent of the club’s members.

Two simple but very effective arrangements were demonstrated which allowed for individual flair to blossom in the creations which ensued.

We were all delighted with our masterpieces.

Open Garden in Sawley, August 28th, 2018

A very pleasant evening was spent in Plant Lane, Sawley, wandering round this small but very full garden. Vibrant colour filled every nook and cranny, something quite remarkable considering the heat of the summer! There were many hidden gems.

Inspiration by Pat Billing, April 14th 2018

Today’s Members’ Workshop by Pat Billing was a joy, sun inside the venue as well as outside!

A horizontal design on an urn was followed by a tall vertical arrangement, displaying the grandeur of  roses, gerbera and chrysanthemum alongside cork screw willow, fatsia, begonia and other garden foliage.

Each creation was beautiful and unique and we learned a lot!

What a lovely way to spend the day.

‘Team work’ March 2018

One of the benefits of club membership is the opportunity not only to develop individual knowledge and skills but also to learn from others in a group situation.
Nowhere was this more evident than on our social evening held during March.

Coming hot on the heels of a highly professional demonstration in February by our own Marion Stokes, the evening was a hard act to follow. As it happened however, it proved to be a highly successful and enjoyable evening.
The atmosphere was convivial with much fun and laughter amidst the banter. Members worked together to arrange pink and yellow gerbera on a bed of yellow and green foliage and twigs to create a stunning elongated design which was subsequently used as an Easter decoration in Breaston Methodist Church.

A first class example of team work at its best.
