April showers bring May flowers and they will be blooming in the gorgeous garden of Paula Hennessy on the 15th. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from Sybil Sylvester and James Farmer, two of the very best in floral design, as they ease us into summer entertaining with new ideas for tabletop arrangements. Sybil Sylvester, floral designer, author, and owner of Wildflower Designs in Birmingham, Alabama, will teach us how to make one of her stunning arrangements for a seated dinner. James Farmer, floral designer, interior designer, author, and owner of James Farmer Designs, will show us all about constructing a fabulous arrangement for a cocktail buffet. Afterwards, we’ll gather in the garden for refreshments and fun. We look forward to seeing everyone at our last meeting of the year.
