Noted Flower Arranger Nancy D’Oench to Lecture in Essex on Upcoming International World Flower Show in Boston

On Monday, April 25 at 1:45 pm in the Essex Town Hall, the Essex Garden Club will sponsor a most interesting talk by noted author and flower arranging expert Nancy D’Oench.  D’Oench will discuss the upcoming international World Flower Show which will be held in Boston June 15 – 19.  The lecture is free and open to the public.

The World Flower Show is an international event held once every three years.  This year is its first-ever appearance in the United States.  There will be over 600 exhibitors from around the world celebrating the art of floral design.  This is the only time it will be held in this country in our lifetime. 

Traditionally, each host country produces a book featuring the styles and work of its leading arrangers.  Nancy D’Oench, who is well known for her own brilliant designs, has written the book for this year’s show titled “Flower Arranging The American Way.”  In a powerpoint presentation, Nancy will show examples of the wide variety of styles that today represent flower arranging in the United States.
