    On Thursday 11th May North Ferriby Flower Club welcomed Carl Wilde for the evening demonstration. It was an eagerly awaited meeting as Carl has been to our Club many times, and is extremely entertaining. He recently moved to live in the Southern area of France, and so we were looking forward to hearing about his move, stories and the wonderful flower arrangements he always produces. We were not disappointed. A packed Hall showed how popular Carl is at our Club, and arrived on stage as flamboyant as ever both in his dress and his manner.

    His title for the demonstration was “An English Summer”. The first arrangement was “Afternoon Tea”. He used a triple glass cake stand and decorated it in pale pinks of hydrangea, wisteria and orchids to connect the layers and finished it with French fancies on each shelf and strawberries – the first stunning arrangement. The second was “Picnic at Henley” and he has laid out a rug with china, glasses, napkins, and Pimms and Champagne brought over from France. He then did a beautiful arrangement to go with it in greens and whites using Calla lillies, hosta leaves, astible, and various grasses and leaves – tall and elegant. He then came back on the stage with an amazing three tier Picnic trolley which caused great laughter!

    The third was “Ascot Ladies Day” and Carl made an fabulous hat on a large glass filled with hydrangea. He used ice pink roses and hydrangea for the base of the hat and then bent calla lillies around to form the hat shape and as he says the hats always have feathers sticking out, he has plated palm leaves for the feathers – it was out of this world and you felt you could have worn it!

    The fourth was “A Country House Wedding”. He has already prepared a huge triangle design and stood this on a large urn. Without the flowers added it was lovely just with the greenery. He used white peony, white antirrhnum, roses etc. and the final affect was again fabulous. Finally we were transported to “Wimbledon”. This arrangement was vertical with strong lines and used green and purple as Wimbledon colours, the purple being allium, with lots of green and white lillies and orchids, and he has brought a 2016 programme and “trophy” and bottle of champagne again. All these were done whilst having us in stiches with his stories,, My jaws aches with laughing. What a night!

    On 8th June the Club is taking a full coach to the RHS Show at Chatsworth, so our next meeting is on 13th July when we welcome Mark Entwistle from Sandbach Cheshire. Mark has worked in floristry for over 25 years, both in education and retail. He is an Area Demonstrator and worked in a team for Interflora at Chelsea 2016. This again should be a wonderful evening, and guest tickets are available on the door at a price of £4.
