We had a fabulous turnout for our November General Meeting, flower arranging by new member, Myriam Rico de Casso. She is clearly knowledgeable and passionate about flowers. It was interesting to see how the arrangements are created. There is a great deal of planning and preparation that goes into making the arrangements before Myriam begins to place the flowers.
The good news is that you creative types can try this on your own. You can get together with several friends and place a large order with Myriam. Many shops don’t have one-off items for sale. You must purchase or order large quantities of certain items. Note too, that many garden centres are carrying decorative live moss right now because the nativity scenes that everyone creates for the December holidays call for it. The rest of the season you’ll need to order it.
Those of you that are non-creative with flowers (like me), you can call Myriam and ask her to create an arrangement for you. Just don’t wait until the last minute for any of this. It all takes time and planning. Usually a week or more to order items, do plan accordingly.
Below are Myriam’s contact details and a few shops where you may be able to purchase items directly.
