NGC Goals & Objectives: Floral Design & Fellowship

Program:“Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” (1967)
This program is a design demonstration featuring semi-formal table designs for four as stipulated in the Handbook for Flower Shows, pg. 76, 1. Functional Table, d. iv. “more formal & sophisticated dining.” Design Committee members, Judy Slaughter and Cheryl Willey, will each partner with a guest designer from another District I club to demonstrate the art of a tablescape. Once you become a pro at tablescaping, volunteer to host a meal at your home for fellow club members and you won’t need to Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner!
