Description:

Receiving a dozen roses is a really lovely gift, but what do you do with them? Usually, we just plop them in a vase and enjoy them until they wilt. However, there are some creative ways of occasionally rearranging them to make the most of their changes from bud to bloom. This presentation will demonstrate creative ways to arrange and rearrange roses
in order to extend their enjoyment.

Speaker is Judy Arthofer.
