At our December meeting, we enjoyed learning how to creatively arrange flowers with Phyllis Brady, one of our member artists who owned a floral business for many years. It was fascinating how effortlessly she combined cut flowers with fruits, vegetables and greenery. A quick trip to the grocery store, farmer's market or even your own backyard will give you everything you need to make a stunning centerpiece.
Any arrangement can be seasonal with a few craft store items, like frosted pinecones for winter or a fake bird for spring. Phyllis created four different arrangements using floral foam inside a variety of containers - a ceramic tureen, a glass vase, a faux tree trunk, and a stone bowl. She graciously donated her arrangements for our prize drawing - these were the lucky winners!
