Flower Shows

WORCESTER GARDEN CLUB

Since 1919, our members have demonstrated their talents at Flower Shows within Massachusetts and beyond. A portion of WGC's programming supports this activity through demonstrations and hands-on workshops. We are always amazed at the creativity and originality that resides in these individuals!

This page will always display work from the latest major flower show. For previous shows, click on the links to the left in the green bar. To see all or our designer's work, please scroll down.

Seven States Daffodil Show, THBG

May5-6,2018

Sunrise . . . as seen in the spring-time apple orchard

Sarah Ribeiro
First Place
Best in Show
"A superb sunrise atop Tower Hill!"

Barbara Athy, 3rd place "The harmonious forms and textures create a gentle sunrise. The amount of linear material is not in proportion to other components."

Kathy Michie, 2nd place "Placement of plant material creates a sunny rhythmic interpretation of class! The black base interrupts the overall rhythm of the design."

Sherri Pitcher
Honorable Mention
"What a pristine and colorful sunrise! The container dominates the design."


Moonrise. . . as seen over the Wachusett Reservoir

Kim Cutler
1st place
"Over the Moon!"

Marne Mailhot, 2nd place "This is a lovely naturalistic and textural interpretation of class. The line is interrupted by the placement of the Prunus branch."

Amy Gove, 3rd place "Beautiful integration of color throughout the design. The amount of bark is not in proportion with the overall design."

Sally Jablonski Honorable Mention "The daffodils create an interesting rhythm. The placement of the Euphorbia divides the design."

Class 3 – Vernal Pool

First time exhibitor, Penny Kaczyk wowed us all with her Best in Show floral design. She took leaf manipulation top a whole new level!

Sarah Ribeiro won a red ribbon for her wind swept design using a manzanita branch and orchids.

Julie Lapham created a beautiful design pairing skunk cabbage and gerbera daisies in a natural bark container.


Class 2 - April Showers

Joan Laracy favored delicate pink garden roses in this elegant spring design which received the blue ribbon.

Kathy Michie won 2nd for this diagonal wonder which paired rich brown foliage with deep pink ranunculus.

Ulrike Lies used tulips and daffodils, flowers of the season, in this fresh spring bouquet. Note her container, glass mounted on a wooden burl.


Class 1 - Come in . . .Out of the Rain

Barbara Athy won the blue for a early spring table featuring yellow and orange flowers with contrasting green placemats.

Mary Fletcher and Heather Maykel worked together to stage an elegant table using creamy greens and yellows with coral accents.

Tracy Dill put together a fanciful combination of hot pink, black and white. Her contemporary dishes were a show stopper.

Working with rich cobalt blue accents, Sarah Lenis channeled her inner child and put a fairy garden in the center of her table.
