Wreaths created at Bud n’ Bloom Club

Members of the Bud ‘n Bloom Garden Club gathered at the home of Janet and Harry Centner for April wreath-making. Pictured left to right are: Sharon Przybyciel, Nancy Kohler, Janet Centner, Judy Wilcox, Lucy Hurley and Sallie Newell.

When the Bud ‘n Bloom Garden Club visits the majestic brick home of Janet and Harry Centner, they are always in for a sensory delight and the craft meeting was true to form.

A sunny daffodil flower bed centered with a sun catcher globe greeted the ladies immediately. Blue and pink hyacinths were seen peeking out from the next flower bed. A large watering can collection hung on the fence bordering the property.

Forsythia bushes graced the side yard and provided a wreath for the kitchen door entrance and three arrangements along with jonquils for the buffet table.

Upon entering the sun room entrance, the group enjoyed the grape and Welch’s memorabilia collection. The favorite was the huge bunch of grapes that lit up and cast a purple glow. Every window displayed a beautiful suncatcher with garden delights.

The kitchen area contained the buffet table covered with a hand-embroidered lace-bordered table covering with blue flowers. Navy blue linen napkins matched the blue and cream-colored table setting.

The formal dining room was clearly in the springtime, Easter theme. A ceramic spring bird collection was perched on a shelf.

The large antique dining table was covered for the creation of ribbon wreaths. In advance, members trimmed specific sized ribbons to the desired lengths and then the ribbons were hot-glued to wire frames.

Enjoying conversation, tea, coffee and cinnamon coffee cake provided by co-chairlady Judy Wilcox, the crafters designed lovely spring wreaths. Eclipse yellow was the dominant color used. Rainbows, plaids, sunflowers and spring hues were chosen to complete their creations.

Secretary Sally Newell circulated a brochure from the Plantasia Garden Show at the Erie County Fairgrounds visited in March.

Newell also shared the club’s 2024 monthly agenda, compiled by Secretary Newell.

Angie Leone invited members and friends to visit her daffodil gardens, which are extensive and in full bloom.
