In June, our program "Show and Tell" will give you an opportunity to do any type of floral design that you'd like to try. Phillipa Smith, a Master Accredited Flower Show Judge will critique each floral design.You may bring a design of your choice from the Handbook for Flower Shows to be critiqued.  As
usual, the allotted space is 24" by 30" with no height restriction. Background and underlay are optional. Everyone who exhibits a design will receive credit for their entry, but no awards will be given. So no pressure, just a fun learning opportunity.
