Floral Arrangements by YOU! Nov 16, 2022 – 1-3pm ONE WEEK EARLY!

The “Community Garden Club of Camas Washougal’s” November meeting is ONE WEEK EARLY Nov 16th, starting at 1pm,  to avoid conflict with the Thanksgiving holiday.

We will be making floral arrangements for the holidays!  The club will provide oasis and some flowers.

Please bring a vase or other container plus your shears, ribbons and any greens and flowers from your yard. Dried pods, pine cones, fresh or dried flowers, twigs, leaves, branches (holly, cedar, fir), woody products, berries, and anything you would like to add to your creation are fine.

If you have extra materials, please bring them to share with others in the “general” area, too!

Following light snacks and a short business meeting, one of our newest talented members who recently retired as a florist, Sandra, will give us a brief overview of how to create something gorgeous, then we’ll all make our individual floral arrangements to take home.

(If you’re a bit unsure about this whole floral arrangement “thing” – feel free to ask for help from others.  I’ve got zero decorating talent, but, go home with something lovely every year thanks to the kindness of more talented members! – B.R.)

Not a member?  No problem!  Anyone can join the club at any meeting.  And any member of the public can attend meetings to hear speaker presentations without being a member.

The club will provide coffee and hot water/tea; feel free to bring a snack or lunch if you’d like.

Sandra showed us how a thin piece of wire, shaped into a “shepherds crook” at the top, can be pushed through the center of the flower head (so the “crook” is at the top) and then wrapped around the base of the stalk several times to hold its head up!
