Door Garden Club to Host First Little Flower Show
The Door Garden Club will host its first little flower show with Floral Design class entries at a luncheon, meeting, and program at the Beach Club at Horseshoe Bay Golf Club on Tuesday, June 27. Interested individuals who attend are invited to bring a fresh floral centerpiece no taller than 12" and appropriate for either a 60" round or 42" square dining table . Entries will be 'for exhibition only' and will not be judged. Entrants will have an opportunity to talk a bit about their entries during an informal Flower Show and Tell. Floral designers Sonja Durkee and Jane Mohit will also deconstruct floral arrangements that they've created to expose new and old sustainable ways to hydrate stems and hold them in place.
The Sister Bay Historical Society recently shared an article from the Green Bay Press-Gazette Archives entitled "Many Awards Given at Annual Ephraim Flower, Garden Show" dated August 1941, which is believed to be one of the last traditional flower shows held in Door County. The article reads "While recent dry weather cut down considerably the number of entries, it did not distract from the beauty that was shown in the various classifications at the annual Peninsula Arts Association flower and garden show held at the village hall here Saturday and Sunday. The show opened Saturday at noon after the judges had completed their task of awarding first, second, and honorable mention ribbons to a large number of entries."
More information about the Door Garden Club's June luncheon, meeting, program, and little flower show can be found on the club's website at doorgardenclub.org. Everyone is welcome to attend. The cost for the luncheon and program is $40. Space is limited and reservations are required.
