Fall Festivals

For the last three years, our long time designer Marianne has donated her time and flowers for South Hills Elementary School and South Hills Christian Church's Fall Festival. The yearly festival raises money for the school's PTA as well as for the church. Children and families enjoy the food, bounce house, games and the book walk. Each year Marianne brings buckets and buckets of fresh flowers to the event and creates hand-tied bouquets. Each bouquet is unique with roses, poms, lilies, orchids and more. Everyone loves watching how they are made! Many people like to take them home, but a few enjoy giving them away. One young boy bought five bouquets and said he was giving them to each of his girlfriends! Marianne always has a great time at the festival and looks forward to it each year.
