Yvonne Berry - “Sporting Favourites”

Photos and Report: Lorna Hill

At our meeting on April 19th, we welcomed Yvonne Berry for a return visit to the club on a lovely warm and sunny afternoon. Her title was ‘Sporting Favourites’ for which she had sourced a variety of unusual but topical artefacts and containers. For the opening arrangement, Yvonne served up a design to depict tennis with green chrysanthemums to represent the tennis balls against a backdrop of two old tennis rackets. Then she motored on with a design for motor racing with a flower pot man driving a vehicle with sunflowers appearing to help it whoosh along. Next, she sailed on to producing two arrangements to depict the sails on a beautiful red-hulled yacht. Next we had a fishing basket with her interpretation of part of the river bank with clumps of purple iris. Then we felt as though we were at Ascot, as she produced a pretty arrangement in front of a finishing post incorporating the colours from her hat and gloves. Lastly, her final winning design was in a silver trophy.

Yvonne has kindly given us permission to use images of 2 of her arrangements.
