Spring Floral Arranging Demonstration
with Jolene Struebbe
Saturday, May 22, 2-4 pm
(Outdoors, socially distanced, COVID friendly)
Do you admire other’s floral arrangements, but feel intimidated to create one of your own? Have you tried to create your own arrangements but then decided you didn’t like them? Do you not even notice flowers, but after reading this, think well, maybe I should? Well then….
Please make plans to join Jolene Struebbe, of Beechwood Avenue, on Saturday, May 22, 2021 from 2 until 4 pm to learn some basics about floral arranging using garden greens and grocery store flowers. This will be a demonstration only class – you get to sit in your chair, watch, ask questions, and take notes, while Jolene does the work. Topics to be covered will include basic floral conditioning, how to choose a container, and basic principles of floral design. Jolene plans to demonstrate an arrangement for a center hall table, dining table and bedside table.
Jolene got her start in floral arranging through her church flower guild. She would bring home leftover flowers and practice arrangements at home all the while training her eye. She then went on to complete three terms of floral design school at Great Oaks. She has enjoyed being a floral demonstrator and creating tablescape designs for events at the Cincinnati Woman’s Club and the The Garden Club of Charleston.
This demonstration will be a fundraiser for NANA Beautification efforts. Please reserve your space, as they
will be limited, by emailing your interest to Jolene at , and sending in your donation of $25 per person, payable to NANA (Beautification) to Jolene at 4018 Beechwood Avenue. Checks must be received by May 15.
An outdoor site is still being chosen and will be shared to those who are participating. Day of, please bring your questions, mask and portable chair.
