Our program topic was on Pot-et- Fleur Flower Arrangements which is the marriage of potted plants and cut flowers. It is not a mini landscape or scene but has all of the form and the flow of traditional floral arrangement. President Vicki H. and Co-Flower Show Chairman Maureen T. demonstrated several designs and many of them were raffled off. Thank you!
