Flower Shows


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.

WGC Floral Designers Create Centerpieces for Worcester Art Museum Gala

Gala Committee Chairs, Susan Palatucci and Lisa McDonough, enlisted the help of our talented members to create luscious floral design for the museum's annual gala. The designers worked with hydrangea, peonies, roses and stock to make designs in tender pastels.

Marne Mailhot, Judy VanderSalm and Sally Jablonski at work.

Sarah Ribeiro organized the workshop and Julie Lapham was a "professional consultant!"

Barbara Athy was an enthusiastic participant in this fun endeavor.

Here is a table all ready for the Gala. Exquisite!

Class I: Ornament in the Garden

First place design by Sherri Pitcher. "Ribbit!"

Marne Mailhot, Second place. "Thoughtful placement of plant material creates a successful design."

Maggie Maple. Third place. "Bold choice of components! Humming birds detract from the overall design"

Lucy Linwood. Honorable mention. "Mass of narcissus balance weight of rocks. Arrangement is missing an obvious garden ornament."

Class II: Wind in the Garden

Mary Fletcher. First place and Best in Show. "Spring breezes promise the warmth of yet to come."

Joan Laracy. Third place. "Creative and daring choice of plant material. Strong “wind” creates an imbalance in design."

Kathy Michie. Honorable Mention "Branch material creates an interesting line. Abundance of material detracts from the rhythm of design.

Sarah Ribeiro. Second place. "Soft breezes rustle spring flowers. Container heavy for design."
