Program - Jim Miller: Flower Design

Jim Miller, who is the District IV director presented a program of the elements of floral design for garden club members as recognized by the garden club association. Jim is a floral judge with several years expertice.

Jim elucidated design principles as a acronym BaDCRoPS.

BALANCE - the design should be stable. It shouldn't fall over.

DOMINANCE - design needs a theme flowers or line, not container

CONTRAST - different elements to make the design interesting

RHYTRHM - catch the eye of the viewer - eyes should go thru the design

PROPORTION -

SCALE - the design and the vase should be similar in character.

On containers - consider collecting a bunch of different sizes & shapes. Something unusual helps.

Be creative, be imaginative.
