Thank you to all our members and visitors who came along this evening to see the wonderful demonstration by Jacqui Arnold "Jingle All the Way". Before the doors opened our committee was busy preparing the hall. The sales table was full of festive goodies. The Festive Fiver Arrangmenets were arriving. The Publicity table was promoting the Festive Flower & Food Show DVD, NAFAS 2019 Diamond Anniversary events as well as our trip to Ely Cathedral Flower Festival next year. The mulled wine & mince pies were ready and our demonstrator was busy prepping. 6.30 and it was like the Harrods sale as everyone was eager to enjoy the evening ahead.
Jacqui's demonstration was amazing, the garden plant material she used was so varied witha few extra special surprises that many of our members had not seen before. & of course a touch of glitter. Then came the flowers and wow, wow, wow! The variety in each design, the beautiful colours, the different textures was quite spectacular with plenty of oooh's & aaaah's from the audience. Jacqui has given permission for two of her designs to be posted. As you will see each design had more than one placement so we just have to leave it to your imagination as to how the final stage looked with 13 lucky people taking home raffle prizes.
