PROJECT 7: Flower arranging

Friends of ours are getting married tomorrow, and the bride asked us girls if we would contribute the flowers for the big day. I am no gardener, so my offer was to arrange the flowers if others would grow them. I have to say that everyone came through in big style for today's session of arranging and the results are spectacular. Claudia (the bride) stressed that she wanted each person to be able to express their own style and flair in their arrangements, so it took the pressure off a little and resulted in a wonderful variety of baskets, vases, sap buckets (obligatory flower vessels here in Vermont) and urns.

The raw materials...

Some of the gang, working their magic...

The fruits of our labours...

In our own little way we all get to be a part of the celebration and give something of ourselves in support of the happy couple, over and above just attending and I was honored to be asked. It promises to be a fabulous day....Congratulations Claudia and John!
