She also created two flower arrangements:

  • She made a silk flower arrangement for Mother's Day - 1st place - blue ribbon

Last Saturday she woke up early with me while I was preparing my home grown flower arrangements and she decided to create her own. She entered a live flower arrangement in the Floriculture department and received 1st place - BLUE RIBBON

Overall Allisa did a good job and when she did her best it showed. Allisa learned this year that it is not always best to have the most entries and that quality does matter. She had fun with her entries and will participate again next year.
