Arrangers learn to make dining table decorations for the summer

Ladies from Axminster, Chard and across the region learnt how to make floral designs for their summer dining room tables at a workshop at Combe St Nicholas Village Hall.

First, they were shown how to make a luxurious ring-of-roses table centrepiece. This was followed by a leaf wrapping technique to create matching place settings. Then the finishing touch was learning how to fold their table napkins and dress these with roses, too.

Carole Hanna, from Axminster, said: “For me, the perfect way to spend a day is at one of these workshops, they are such fun. We all followed the carefully explained step-by-step instructions for all three designs.

“We created stunning, circular arrangements with our beautiful roses – which were the absolute stars of the show. It was such a relaxed, fun and friendly atmosphere. No pressure - just pleasure!”

Award-winning tutor Jackie Nicholls, from Ashville Design, in Somerset, who runs the workshops added: “Making three different designs made this summer workshop extra special.

“The ladies who came all like entertaining, so it was an absolute delight to see that they are now able to dress their summer dining room tables so beautifully. Their finished designs were all incredibly good - and definitely had the ‘wow’ factor. Ten out of 10 from me!”
