Sandie Draper demonstrated flowers entitled “Full of Eastern Promise” at our April meeting. Sandie had planned to go to Japan via India, hence the title of her demonstration. Her arrangements portrayed India with flowers in bright pink with peonies, carnations and gold sprayed birch twigs. A candelabra celebrating Diwali, the festival of light was decorated with roses, freesias, stocks and eustoma. Other arrangements represented Thailand and Japan, all the places that Sandie had hoped to visit in the last 2 years.
Some of our members attended an Easter workshop run by Gill Booker and produced some beautiful Easter arrangements.
Gerrards Cross Flower Club celebrates its Sapphire anniversary this year. We will be having a special lunch on May 11th to celebrate this and all our members will be wearing blue. We have had a special photograph taken which I will add here.
