Floral Designs from the Garden Club - Garden Tour

When the Chester Garden Club decided to host a Garden Tour this Spring, the Club thought it would be a good thing to have displays of horticulture and floral designs at the Parish Hall to showcase our club's activities.  All submissions were on a volunteer basis and the plant material had to be grown by the club member.  In a previous post I show pics of a small portion of the horticulture that was exhibited.

We had eight ladies volunteer to make floral designs.  What a remarkable showing we had and they each one were beautiful.  The designer was given free reign to do whichever type she wanted.  We had an angular design, several creative designs, and the new design titled "Low Profile".(one of the new design types listed in the NGC Handbook - its created to be viewed from above). Enjoy the photos.

"Chester Garden Walks" Garden Tour April 23, 2017

The Chester Garden Club hosted a Garden Tour yesterday highlighting five local gardens.  Even though the day was overcast with a few sprinkles, every person raved about the beauty of each garden.  The gardens were: The Fox Garden, The Morgan Garden, The Hawkins Garden, The Griffin Garden and the Memorial Garden at St. John's Episcopal church.   More photos will follow about each garden.

At St. John's Parish Hall the Club offered a display of floral designs and horticulture from their own gardens.  Each specimen was perfect and well staged.  The following are pics of the submissions.

Easter Floral Designs for home or altar

We have such a great opportunity to create beautiful flower arrangements for Easter.  Most of us can grab a few things from our gardens, add a flash or dash from the florist and have a lovely design for Spring.  Maybe you can get inspiration from the following designs.  Think outside the box and you will come up with a masterpiece of your own.  All of the photos are pics I found on a website from the UK. The link is It is one of my favorite sites... I know it will be one of yours too.  I hope you have a wonderful, blessed Easter.  He is Risen!
