‘Let the Festivities Begin’ was the theme of Julie Woods demonstration and she certainly hit the spot. Julie has a garden full of unusual plants and all her well conditioned foliage used in her demonstration came from it.   Her flowers in reds, white, deep pink and gold set the scene for very festive arrangements. Each arrangement was a different shape using very different styles of container and the innovative use of dried foliage, fruit and glitter.   She also gave us tips on how to dry some of the foliage. By the end of the evening, the stage was full of colour and fragrance and everyone had a favourite arrangement they hoped to win. The demonstration was so good we actually ran out of tickets for the raffle! Once again, we all had a great evening ending with mince pies, tea and coffee.

Our next meeting is the AGM followed by a members evening on 19 January at 7.30pm in the Old Felixstowe Community Centre, Ferry Road, IP11 9NB. I do hope we will see you there.
