With holiday season around the corner, Houston Rose Society will hold December virtual meeting on making holiday gifts and will also give decoration tips.

Mary Fulgham is an expert at making potpourri and has made this process an annual tradition in her home.  She will describe the process of drying your rose and other flower petals, selecting spices and essential oils to add to the mix, as well as, hosting a party with children to help you bag the finished product.

If you have ever had a need for a flower arrangement quickly and a trip to the grocery store resulted in a bare shelf, never fear.  Gaye Hammond will demonstrate how to build 3 eye-catching arrangements that are easy to put together in minutes using flowers and plant material from your own garden.  While these are being done for the holidays, they are all easily adapted for other times of the year as well.

Maria Trevino has been instrumental in decorating and assisting with hosting our annual holiday party each December.  She has many great holiday decorating tips to share with us this evening.

 Please join with us on December 10th from 7pm to 9pm via GoToMeeting. Join meeting using computer, tablet or smartphone with access code: 864-464-213. https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/864464213
