For information, call (904) 824-2874 or visit https://www.showclix.com/event/sisterhood-of-the-traveling-plants-flower-demo/.

Learn how to create floral arrangements and “tablescapes” reminiscent of English country manor homes like Downton Abbey.

Garden Club members Marilyn Smith and Cathy Snyder will lead the interactive workshop and show how the decorative aesthetic in the late 19th and early 20th centuries fostered new and creative ways of decorating with flowers, fruits, and vegetables.

Following the workshop, light refreshments will be served by the Garden Club of St. Augustine. Workshop attendees receive complimentary admission to the Lightner Museum all day on Sunday.

This demonstration  will highlight the upcoming Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times exhibition to be held at the Lightner Museum beginning in October 2017.

The Garden Club of St. Augustine is a nonprofit organization established in 1926 to promote horticulture, floral design, beautification, and conservation.
