Festive flowers

Stanhoe and Barwick WI learn flower arranging with local expert Gary Bocking.

At the December meeting of Stanhoe and Barwick WI the room was packed with members and guests to see Gary Bocking, a local flower arranging celebrity, create some Christmas flower arrangements.

A self-taught florist, Gary was full of hints and tips on creating both a Christmas wreath for the door, and a table arrangement. These tips varied from preparation of the supports, where to buy them, wiring flowers and fruit, adding candles, and creating a ribbon bow. He used a wide range of foliage which was both varied in texture and fragrance, and he explained clearly the names of the various foliage plants used. Both frosting and glitter were easily added.

Everyone admired the stunning wreath and the table arrangement on completion. Generously Gary gave the table arrangement as a raffle prize, which was won by a lucky visitor.

After tea and delicious cakes members concluded the meeting with WI Business, and a presentation of a centenary booklet written by a member, and a centenary mug made by a local potter, was made to every member.
