At the March meeting of the Barkby & Beeby WI we were joined by Kerry Evans who came along to demonstrate flower arranging techniques. With a plate, a glass, a gift bag, half a plastic drinks bottle, a children’s seaside bucket and a few bunches of flowers from Asda, she proceeded to show us how to transform them into several beautiful arrangements. She also gave hints and tips on how to keep your flowers fresh for longer, such as washing up liquid in your tulip water, dipping rose stems in boiling water, keeping oasis wet and spraying the flowers. This was a very interesting and very entertaining evening with the arrangements given as raffle prizes at the end much to the delight of those who won them.
