Annett Stoker Seasons Greetings – Tue 8th December
For our Christmas meeting the demonstrator who entertained us so ably at the anniversary lunch returned to give us ‘Seasons Greetings’.
Annett opened the demonstration with a white design in a snowflake bowl using longiflorum lilies and white chrysanthemums and Christmas lights.
Using a tall red container with purple liatris, gold spray leaves, agapanthus and poinsettias she depicted the wise men.
Next she did a duel placement in galvanized containers with exotic foliage, purple Eustoma and green dianthus.
Then a very seasonal design with 2 placements on a piece of driftwood with red carnations, red roses and sprayed fir cones gave a spectacular display.
Next Annett used a sphere of wrought iron spines in which she created a vibrant arrangement with orange gerbera, roses and calla lilies.
As Annett demonstrated her husband kindly judged the photographic competition, which the club organized, there was an excellent display which members enjoyed. The winners of the ‘Natures Splendours’ category were 1st Elizabeth Jamieson 2nd Hilary Lamont 3rd joint Jean Wood / Hilda Anderson ‘My Favourite Flowers’ section 1st Hilda Anderson 2nd Brenda Wood 3rd Hilda Anderson. The meeting closed with tea and mince pies, the date of the next meeting is Tuesday 8th March.
