Floral Design Workshop Chairs 2021-2022: Sue Warren and Mary Levy

Floral Design Workshop April 2022

On April 1, 2022 Cathy Sutton and JoAnne McKee led a floral design workshop for 35 Garden Club of Long Beach Island members at the Bay Avenue Community Center in Manahawkin. The workshop was designed to encourage members to flex their creative floral design talents for the club’s upcoming May 5th Standard Flower Show. Flowers used in the arrangements included carnations, mums, alstroemeria, solidago and eponymous. Pussy willows added a wonderful springtime touch. Members created lovely arrangements that they then took home . Remember, click on a photo to enlarge.

This video demonstrates a classic vase arrangement in less then 6 minutes! Use flowers and greens from your garden or pick up a bunch from your local market (or a combination of both).  We hope this will inspire our Garden Club members to create a fun arrangement at home during these socially-distant times.  Please send a picture of your creation via email to marywlevy@gmail.com and your arrangement may be highlighted in an upcoming newsletter or on the website.
