Monthly Little Shows



 Members may try their hands each month by creating a design or arrangement as specified in our yearly handbook.


Even though the Martha Washington Garden Club cannot meet at this time, we look forward to continuing our tradition of monthly Little Shows with a virtual show via our Facebook and website platforms. Let your creative juices flow and create a design around each month’s title. Snap a photo and email it to Barbara Heisler at All entries will be uploaded to the Martha Washington Discussion Group on Facebook and on the date of our usual meetings (4th Wednesday of each month). An email reminder will be sent each month along with an example of each type of arrangement. If you need to kick start your design ideas, Google key words from the title or description or check pinterest. You will find plenty of examples. Artificial or silk plant material is not permitted in any design.
