IN-PERSON MEMBERSHIP MEETING
Monday, September 13, 2021
9:15 A.M. - 12:45 P.M.
Floral Designs - Behind the Scenes:
Containers, Mechanics, and Tools
Martha Hunt, Julie Pittet, Merle Galindo, Benita Ngan
Before creating a floral design, we must first understand the many facets of flower arranging - from containers and mechanics to selecting and conditioning plant material, to the inspiration of creating the final design.
Our goal is to move past “drop-in bouquets" or just placing a bunch of flowers in a vase without support. Mechanics are the basics for every good design. Without a workable method of controlling plant material, the floral arranger is doomed.
Our program will start with a PowerPoint presentation about the basics of containers, mechanics, and tools. Julie Pittet will lead a discussion, while Martha Hunt, National Garden Club Master Judge, and floral designers Merle Galindo and Benita Ngan, will demonstrate some of the ideas.
We look forward to a wild and fun day. Please join us.
For additional ideas and inspiration, we encourage you to visit the following Photo Galleries on our website losangelesgardenclub.org > Inspiration, Horticulture Judging, Flower Shows, and Show & Tell.
