Petitti’s Show 2021 – Artistic Design

Classes

Harvest – Celebrate the harvest season

Wild and Crazy – (since the show will be in September this will be instead of Holloweeny things) – Use wild materials (thistle, goldenrod, cattails…)  and go crazy with the dahlias!

September Morn – (Neil Diamond song) – Romantic arrangement. Sweet and lovely.

Floriferous – In memory of DSO member, Karen Colini.  Karen liked arrangements with lots of flowers, interesting filler, lots of texture.  Pull out all the stops and make Karen proud.
