Sparkles in the February Competition

The theme this month may have been “Ice” but the flower designs that were showcased (see below) would have warmed your hearts. Resident Judges Florence Leyssène and Debbie Moran were on hand to assess each class of designs to determine “Best in Show” Blue Ribbon winners as well as 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mention award designations.  Fourteen flower designs were submitted in addition to Fran Ackerly’s “Trial Run” Exhibition Table, a Tasteful Take-Out bistro themed pizza-for-one exhibit in stunning red, black, and white.

Here are the results of the design competition:
