Bexhill Floral Group December report.

For our special Christmas meeting at Manor Barn we were pleased to welcome Carolynne Meer on 4th December.

Her demonstration began with a welcome wreath containing fruit, cones and aromatic twigs on a fir background. Finished with Xmas roses it made a very original display.

The second arrangement included some unusual coloured anthuriums, alstromeria and Sweet Berry roses.

Using an Edwardian child’s carriage as a sleigh, there followed a winter display with ivy, scarlet carnations, Anastasia “green” chrysanthemums and using dried cotton bushes as snowballs.

Everyone had the chance to see how a small table decoration could be made at home with a candle and posy base.

The finale consisted of a spectacular frosty arrangement on a super scale made up of white amaryllis, bergenia leaves finished with silver and woven palm leaves.

With a wonderful Xmas Tea provided by committee members and a raffle, it proved to be a very enjoyable afternoon for all those who attended.

We next meet again at our New Year Coffee Morning on 15 January 2015.
