Congratulations to Amy on her first place State Fair ribbon for the lovely three-part arrangement she made Saturday in the design competition. Three designers were given the same components and all three designed different and beautiful arrangements using purple gladiola, hot pink roses, yellow gerbera daisies, ginger, bird of paradise, fuzzy green carnations, fatsia leaves, grasses and pottery, floral foam and other detail ingredients. Amy used a combination of massing of colors, proper form and use of space to make a series of designs that fit together as one. Good job, Amy! We are proud of you!
