Many of the flower arrangers in our places of worship are members of floral societies and guilds. Yesterday I went to one of my fellowship groups where we were treated to a masterclass in the making of a floral arrangement for the home that would be suitable for a seasonal table decoration. We were shown how to arrange three types of arrangement with tips on how to construct the base and build up the foliage, flowers, and other accessories.
We also had a lunch of soup, bread and cheese and attendees were asked to make a donation to the flower arranger's favourite mountain rescue charity. The arrangements were raffled and I won the candle decoration which now graces our dining table.
