Unless otherwise noted, all designs to be staged on a table 29" high, 30" deep and

covered with an ivory cloth.  Not to exceed 30" in width.


Class 1 “Originality”

As in her award-winning floral designs, Kathy often added just the right touch to stand out.
A Design inspired by a patterned scarf.  Scarf to be displayed vertically, behind and to the left
side of the design.  It may be flat, folded or draped, but not physically incorporated into the floral design.


Class 2 “Workmanship

The gift of her containers reminds us of Kathy's generosity and mentorship.

A design using one of Kathy's containers.  Exhibitors who do not own one of Kathy's containers may

borrow from a selection that will be available at the October meeting.


Class 3 “Inspiration"

Her quiet and graceful leadership personified Ikebana

An Asian-inspired design.  The entries will be judged according to

GCA floral design standards.
