Flower School at YWCA

On August 12, flower editor Margot Shaw and her mentor Sybil Sylvester taught a floral workshop at the Birmingham YWCA. Women were taught how to make topiaries from European hand-ties of white carnations, and everyone enjoyed seeing the beautiful arrangements created. Click on the thumbnails below to see larger images of our fun workshop with some wonderful women.

Margot often tells people to not be afraid of flower arranging, even though it can be intimidating at first. As she said at the YWCA workshop, “God has already made flowers beautiful. You really can’t mess it up!”

Everything we used for the workshop was donated, and we would like to thank everyone who made it possible.

    Margot and Melissa,

    I just saw the fall Flower Mag and the AD for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama Car Tag #86. We appreciate so much your support in this important cause. Thank you in helping us raise money for this research here in Alabama that is saving lives.
