The Deer Creek Daisies celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by visiting Back-En-Thyme Flower Shop. As the members arrived, they were greeted and directed to the back of the shop where a festive table of appetizers was offered, compliments of hostesses Emily King and Billie Lanman.
Following refreshments, owner Kendra Redd Hernandez provided vases, flowers and instructions on how to create a shamrock floral arrangement. Flowers available were alstroemeria, hypericum, plumosa, sprengeri, and white daisies. Kendra also provided green ribbon and instructions on how to make the perfect bow to tie on the vase. Some helpful tips Kendra offered were to cut the stems no taller than the vase and make sure there were no gaps.
To complete our arrangements, we used three glittery shamrocks. Everyone agreed, all the arrangements looked very different, but all were lovely!
Following the design session, members were invited to browse her beautiful shop, visit Sweetwater Bay Boutique, and participate in the wine tasting event going on out in front. The winner of the door prize was Marty Cook. The next meeting of the Deer Creek Daisies will be held on April 20. Hostesses will be Barbara Vance and Marty Cook.
The Deer Creek Daisies would like to thank Kendra and her staff at Back-En-Thyme for hosting a fun and informative meeting!
