The last three days have been very hectic ones. Our Church is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year and decided to have a Flower Festival as part of the celebrations. The theme was "Church and Community" with floral arrangements to celebrate both the life of the church and community. The ladies from the Floral Art Club were helping with some of the arrangements.

Well they needed an arrangement from the Sunday School, well all the other teachers looked at me! Never one to refuse a challenge I agreed, but said the title needed to be changed to Children and Young People. I did manage to persuade a couple of others to help me. Between us we managed to come up with this arrangement.

I wanted the arrangement to be bright and cheery, so chose bright coloured flowers. I decided to hang some CDs as a mobile and have some musical instruments as well. All the arrangements had bible verses to go along with them. Ours was "From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise" Psalm 8:2.

Of course there had to be a teddy there too!

We built a Duplo wall round a container to hold one of the arrangements.

Not bad for our first venture into floral art - perhaps a new hobby in the making!!
