Flower Shows


Since 1919, our members have demonstrated their talents at Flower Shows within Massachusetts and beyond. A portion of WGC's programming supports this activity through demonstrations and hands-on workshops. We are always amazed at the creativity and originality that resides in these individuals!

This page will always display work from the latest major flower show. For previous shows, click on the links to the left in the green bar. To see all or our designer's work, please scroll down.

Newport Flower Show
Audubon: Artistic Adventures
June 21-23, 2019
Rosecliff, Newport, RI

Each class in this show was inspired by an Audubon painting of birds, many of them extinct.

Sally Jablonski won blue for her design inspired by the Pileated Woodpecker.

Sally's second arrangement interpreted the Carolina Parrots you see in the picture to the right.

Sarah Ribeiro won a second for her underwater design in a class about the Long-Legged Avocet. The bird has pick legs!

Sarah won a second red ribbon for her design about the Black-bellied Darter. She (of course) made these ceramic containers.

Susan Dewey got a red ribbon for her fabulous, flamboyant hat!

This lovely picture hat was created by Julie Lapham.

Kim Cutler got HM for this design. She neglected to read the glossary which said a pot et fleur should use only one container.

Former WGC member Ginna Thoma got a red ribbon for this design and the Bettie Pardee award for using only flowers from her garden.


Laura Glazier entered a number of roses and ferns from her garden winning many awards. This beauty got a blue ribbon.

Donna Rose also brought a lot of unusual plant material to Newport. This hosta was one of the three blues she brought home. These ladies rock!
