Caistor & District Flower Club

First demonstrator of the year for the club was Pauline Foster with an evening of ‘Weaving Dreams’.

The first arrangement was a spring design, with a silver metal woven basket as the container.

Using primulas, deep purple tulips and daffodils the finishing effect was spectacular and gave the appearance of a yacht with its sails up.

An all-round design was created next, using a black raffia plate, flamboyant foliage and four large bird of paradise flowers, complemented by orange lilies and dark orange gerbera, making a vibrant and stunning arrangement that would look fantastic in the centre of any table.

Further arrangements all used some form of weaving - whether in the container or plant material being interwoven through the arrangement - all inspirational.

The club’s next meeting will be on April 10, in the town hall at 7.30pm, when the demonstrator will be Jo Smith, with an evening entitled ‘Bon Voyage’.

Visitors are always welcome at meetings; admission £5.

There is also a trip to Harrogate Flower Show planned for April.
