Thank you to everyone who entered Sasqua’s In-Club Floral Design and Photography Show, The Art of Mixology.
A toast and huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in our in-club show,
“THE ART OF MIXOLOGY, Cocktails and Curated Concoctions”……Megan and Sean Kelly who wrote the schedule, Beth, our President who designed and printed the invitation, posters & cocktail napkins, the exhibitors who entered our three classes, our judges from Fairfield Garden Club and Greenfingers, our Passers and Clerks: Nancy Edmiston , Berkeley Soper, Ellen Levinson, Jennifer Downing, Sarah Essig and Kim Heyn, our fabulous Provisionals who did the set-up and takedown of the show, Beth Rhame & Chris and Jennifer Downing who provided trucks and muscles! Linda Tors, my right hand, Marie for the delicious food and Evelyn for the gorgeous flowers on the breakfast table. I know I have forgotten some, so thank you to ALL who helped make it a big success. A flower show is a total TEAM effort and it wouldn’t have come off so effortlessly without a team.
