Attendees learn basics of floral arranging during workshop Wednesday at Patterson’s Flowers

Bob Patterson demonstrates how to place flowers in foam during Wednesday’s Tropical Bouquet Floral Arranging Workshop at Patterson’s Flowers in Big Rapids. The event was part of the Festival of the Arts and taught participants the basic principles of flower arranging and design using fresh flowers. Before the workshop attendees put together their own arrangements, Patterson told them “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and each individual puts together something they will like.
