The Afternoon Floral Art Group is a branch of the Kapiti Horticultural Society . It was formed over 80 years ago for those who are more interested in using the beauty of the flowers and foliage in the garden, than actually growing them. That’s not to say that they don’t mind growing the plants that will be used in their designs
The Floral Group meets on the first Friday of the month at 1.30pm in the Community Centre , Ocean Road Paraparaumu Beach. Each month there is a competition for the best bloom from their gardens, a Floral Art Design competition and a workshop. The designs are based on a theme specified in the Calendar published for the year. The workshops are a way of getting help and ideas for the next month’s design from an expert tutor. This is a friendly group that welcomes new members and go out of their way to help out ‘newbies’ get started on their arrangements.
