We had a hilarious, entertaining, wonderful afternoon with our local ARTIST celebrity - Mark Ballard at the O'Club.He is an absolute riot and is so animated - hence the pictures in motion - I couldn't seem to capture him when he was standing dead still - promise there are a few in focus shots below.
He showed us two different floral arrangements and shared some hilarious stories.
The finished floral arrangement!
The other arrangement he did had vegetables in it (asparagus, artichokes, and broccoli) and some of the most amazing hydrangeas - I think he said they are called antique hydrangeas with gorgeous greens and splatters of bright brilliant red.
He shared with us how he would dress a table if this were the centerpiece ~ beautiful chargers, dishes, and accents.
He used to do two segments a week on a local station -which I admit I taped quite often to see what he was creating or decorating! He is no longer doing that which is quite sad ~ but he is such a talent that I know we'll all see him some day (hopefully soon) on HGTV or the Food Network! You'll be entertained - I guarantee.
AND LUCKY ME!!!! After the event he asked me I could decorate my house with this arrangement? Before he could finish his sentence I said ~ SURE CAN!
YESTERDAY ~ WEDNESDAY
We painted Geraniums.
I have fond memories on Geraniums - I remember my mom having them in our garden always when I was a kid - those and marigolds.
My evening class -
Lisa and Kim
Have a busy weekend with soccer games, painting class and hopefully a bit of yard work!
Have a great day!
