Lisa Oberholzer-Gee, our Annual November Guest Day designer presented "Techniques from Europe and Asia" that featured unusual floral elements and containers.


Our guest designer gathered this pretty bouquet, ringed with a seasonal grapevine wreath and

placed them in an interesting urn-shaped container.


This striking creation is the one our guest is working on in the center photo above.  Again, it features a grapevine wreath, this time with dramatic branches and elements

with the feel of Fall.


Our Annual Holiday Boutique included these Fall bouquets of

dried gathered locally vegetation... and some pretty little plants in Autumn colors.


Enjoy these beautiful dried hydrangeas, cut in one of our members yards, all year long!

Enjoy the color and fragrance of spring with these bulbs that will bloom this winter.  Each is planted in a pretty antique tea cup.


This year's Holiday Boutique offered these exotic little orchid plants,

hand made photo note cards and

tiny bouquets of dried flowers.


Gardeners member volunteers got together to make these pine cone swags perfect for Fall and the upcoming Holiday Season.


Laurie Macauda and her dedicated hospitality volunteers presented a beautiful selection of goodies for everyone to enjoy.  The stunning centerpiece was created by Michele Landes and Cathy Neidich.  A lucky raffle winner got to take that home.
