CAA member Phyllis Brady will demonstrate new artistic ideas and techniques for arranging both familiar and not so familiar varieties of flowers. Perfect timing for holiday centerpieces - and bonus - we will raffle off her final arrangements as a little fundraiser for CAA's gallery fund. You might win and take home a beautiful addition to your dining table!
Phyllis comes from a family of artists and gardeners. With a BA in drawing and painting, she approaches floral design from an art school background. She has worked with flowers for over 30 years, sharing her love of color by creating arrangements for wineries, estates and country clubs. If you have ever attended the annual Bouquets to Art exhibit at the deYoung Museum in San Francisco in the past, you may have seen her floral exhibits there, as she participated in this event for nine years.
Below are the four arrangements she will show us how to make:
Holiday Classic Wreath - fresh flowers, holiday foliage, branches, pods and found materials.
Freshly-Picked Centerpiece - a vase filled jewel-toned flowers, fruits and vegetables
Purple Passion - layers of foliage and flowers in all shades of purple with a few surprise accents
Enduring Elegance - flowers and foliage in soft muted tones for a holiday party
