Workshop in Old Buckenham

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
The Chairman welcomed members and visitors to the November meeting, all eager to commence a workshop, taught by Joy Tunmore. Armed with spray carnations, roses and a small amount of foliage, Joy showed how to place the foliage, then the flowers followed by ‘sparkly embellishments’ to produce a teardrop-shaped arrangement on a shallow tray -and ideal for a Christmas table decoration. Everyone was pleased with their efforts which resulted in a very colourful display.
The table show for a collection of dried flowers and leaves was won by Allison Vivian and the arrangement competition, together with the monthly cup, were won by Maxine Mace who decorated a ring with a variety of dried material.
The next meeting will be held on Thursday 14 December at Old Buckenham Village Hall starting at 2pm when Brenda Tubb, a very amusing demonstrator, will aim to get everyone into the Christmas spirit with her title ‘Another Fine Mess for Christmas’. The table show will be for three stems of seasonal foliage and the competition is entitled ‘Christmas Madness’ so unusual arrangements are expected.
