You might wonder what goes into a flower show?

A brief over view of one of our floral workshops this summer where members of the Garden Club learned about the principals of design.

Believe it or believe it not, the creation of a flower show takes months and months of preparation.  There are so many decisions to be made ahead of time and discussed with the club members.  What is the theme of the show? where will it be located? Expenses  must be taken into consideration such as printing the schedule, having workshops with real flowers for the members so they can learn the principals of design, printing tickets to the show and then selling them!  Going over the Principals of Design is also critical.  I will save that gem for another blog. It just doesn't happen by itself and it requires the cooperation and involvement of every active club member.  You have to get staging for the designs and horticulture, choose colors to go along with your theme, hope and pray for good weather and healthy gardens since members enter their own flowers and vegetables .  I hope you enjoy the photos which show one of our workshops held this summer.  The former President of Ct Federated Garden Clubs and a top prize winning designer as well as a Flower Show Judge came to Milford to give us her workshop on design.  She taylored it just for our show schedule. It was very informative and fun to see how she put together several designs.  Very creative!
