THE Braishfield Flower Arranging Society has held its first meeting of the year.

This meeting featured a demonstration by Melanie Smith entitled “Pretty as a Picture”.

The demonstration included placing the arrangements within a picture frame to produce a different effect, with Melanie working without floral foam.

In an effort to help save the environment, flower arrangers are being encouraged not to use 'floral foam' as it is not biodegradable. 

Members enjoyed Melanie’s presentation with a few twists and turns on the way.
