FESTIVE FLOWERS WEEKEND DECEMBER 12/13th


Bourn Garden Club are inviting everyone to take part in a pre-Christmas village event on 12th & 13th December 2020

         

We hope you can join in the 'Festive Flowers' weekend by decorating your door, door step, porch, gate, or window with festive flowers/greenery.  There are so many ways they can be displayed. Fresh flowers, dried flowers or even fabric arranged as wreaths or sprays, in vases or in pots. The choice is yours!

Our hope is that people will walk, cycle or drive past your house and enjoy seeing the displays.
               
It is NOT a competition but if you wish to take part you are invited to take a photo of your display and send it to External link opens in new tab or windowbourngardenclub@gmail.com. Please include your name, street & village as we plan to provide a guide to Festive Flowers on the Doors. Your photo may appear on the BGC website, in the January issue of Bourn Church and Parish Magazine and bourngardenclub on Instagram.
