Flower Club Christmas demonstration.

Home » Newsroom » Flower Club Christmas demonstration.

I couldn't feel excited about being reminded that Christmas is just around the corner when I attended the Ashton Hayes and Tarvin Flower club's Christmas meeting last Wednesday.

However "The Sparkle of Christmas" did encourage me to look forward to the festive season and to pick up some ideas for my own seasonal designs. I particularly liked the vibrant red, deep pink and orange colours in a parallel design suitable for a fireplace. Unfortunately I don't have a fireplace in my home so cannot copy that idea.

I and 9 others were lucky enough to win arrangements in the raffle. The mincepies were homemade, beautifully decorated and tasted very good too.

All the designs of the evening were packed with flowers and Donald Morgan from Aberystwyth told us the varieties of all the types of flower he used including the deep pink Aqua rose, so named because it is the only rose cultivated in water (quiz question perhaps?)

Whilst producing his designs he amused us with various stories. The final design was a large pedestal with a smaller one beneath along with a reindeer and parcels which were all illuminated. The stage certainly sparkled and prepared us for a happy Christmas season.

We have no December meeting so the next chance to enjoy an evening of flower arranging in Tarvin will be 14th January 2015 when we welcome Susan Bradley and "The Beauty of Lines"

Visitors are always welcome- do come along.

Years ago, whist drives were a very popular and regular feature in the live of the Community Centre and card tables were purchased to enable this. However, the popularity of whist waned over the years, and the tables got pushed further and further back under the stage, dusty, neglected...
