Fun With Floral Design

I was lucky enough to see Lynette McDougal, Mississippi State University Floral Designer, give a demonstration at my garden club meeting a couple of weeks ago and I thought you would enjoy seeing some of her creations.  Her presentation was focused on “Preparing for the 4th Quarter” and she gave fresh holiday decorating ideas sharing some tricks of the trade to make designs sturdy and durable.

Our own garden club members did a fabulous job with decorations for meeting…
