This year we added a new design class of Botanical Arts where the designers did inventive designs using a shoe or a dress form.  The classes were PROM NIGHT and FASHION WEEK.

We also continued with the popular Youth Designs.  T

The Youth design titles:

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL - An imaginative design using fresh and/or dried plant material. 

TOOTH FAIRY - A design of colors using all fresh plant material. Staged on a table; Space allowed is 12” square. 

Horticultural Exhibits showed the talent of the County's residents and all the different things they grow in their gardens. Potted plants, flowers, herbs, landscaping plants filled the front of the Flower Building and amazed the Fair-goers.
