On Thursday, 13th December, 2018, North Ferriby Flower Club were delighted to welcome International Flower Arranger Andrew Grisewood to our Club. Andrew is one of the most inventive and creative designers of his time. His personality matches his production and has made him the No.1 choice for floral art.

Andrew’s arrangements certainly gave us that Christmas sparkle. The stage looked colourful and dazzling and so did Andrew!! His awe inspiring arrangements took shape magically amidst hilarious stories of his life and experiences. We were the last of Andrew’s 14 Christmas demonstrations. He has literally toured the breadth of the UK this year. Andrew used beautiful white orchids, Avalanche roses, yellow and peach Gerberas and Gypsophila which depicted snow. We were even introduced to Andrew’s dog, Albert, a white Pekingese who behaved extremely well! The Village Hall was full. Many people purchased a glass of wine to enjoy before the event and finished the evening with coffee, tea and biscuits. It was a thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing evening.

Please look on our website for photographs of Andrew’s arrangements. Our next meeting is Thursday, 14th February, 2019 when it will be our AGM followed by a talk on Yorkshire Gardens by Rose Horspool. Our first demonstration is Thursday, 14th March, 2019 when we will be entertained by Alison Cooper from Manchester.

    Our programme of events ended with a wonderful demonstration by JONATHAN MOSELEY. He filled the stage with colour, style and the wow factor! An experienced National Demonstrator of 21 years, Jonathan is internationally renowned, a television judge, and the Chatsworth floral arranger. Using many different materials, harmonious colour tones and dramatic containers, Jonathan created a symphony of colour. He created a starburst arrangement using champagne coloured bamboo sticks, cotoneaster rothschildianus and rhapis palm. A black glass vase with white fragrant genista, double lime eustoma and birch twigs amongst other flowers were used to highlight the stage. Birch bark covered boxes were filled with deep purple brassicas, the beautiful lilac coloured rosa lullaby and the pirouette clematis. The stage was a festive delight!

    It was an evening of entertainment and relaxation. A fitting end for our 50th Anniversary Year!
