The format of the April meeting was quite different to most meetings.

Debbie Wadge from Salisbury who is a NAFAS National Judge came to give a short talk entitled "What a Judge Looks for" before proceeding to judge all the exhibits.  The title was "A Spring Basket"  There were many beautiful colourful arrangements with lots of Spring flowers.  Debbie gave constructive comments on each design which will be most helpful for members' future designs.  It was a most interesting and informative afternoon.

Club members enjoyed a demonstration by Michelle Davies entitled ""Fly me to the Moon".

Michelle played a recording of Frank Sinatra singing "Fly me to the Moon" as she began her first design.  A large silver mesh container placed on a stand represented the space shuttle with red tissue paper at the base for the flames and some ivy trails over the mesh.  A dish was placed on top of the shuttle containing variegated ivy and fatsia.  Red spray carnations were inserted with some gypsophila, blue delphiniums were placed in the centre together with an iris and a white lily to add height to this red, whie and blue design. Finally a Union Jack flag was added amongst the flowers and a model astronaut fixed to the outside of the shuttle.

P1040310c

Venus (named after the goddess of love and beauty) was the inspiration for this design.  A long silver curved rectangular container was used.  Ruscus sprayed with leaf shine was placed either side before adding white wax flowers together with cycas palm leaves and some variegated bamboo.  Prada carnations were placed low in the design before deep pink lilies and a beautiful pale pink orchid were added to give height.  An illuminated white mesh heart completed this design.

P1040309c

To represent Mars (the red planet) Michelle used one half of a large polystyrene sphere which had been sprayed in shades of red and placed on a silver metal stand.  Grevillea sprayed black provided the outline for this design before adding red kangaroo paws and red spray carnations. Beautiful red pin cushion proteas were inserted and gave impact to the design.  As a final touch small mars bars on sticks were included.

P1040315c

An interpretation of Saturn and its rings came next.  A round container with a tall narrow neck was used for this design. Silver discs to represent ice were placed around the top.  Silvered cycas palm leaves, pussy willow and white lilies gave height to the design together with some ting ting.  Cream bouvardia and gypsophila were added to complete the arrangement.

P1040311c

A round silver container on a stand was used for this design interpreting the moon.  Shiny purple leaves sprayed with a little glitter provided the outline.  Yellow alstromeria, solidago, peach double lisianthus, yellow roses edged with red and a beautiful yellow orchid were inserted.  Silver glittery stars completed the design.P1040312c
