WATCH IT GROW, MINI ORCHID SHOW
If you are a newer or brand new orchid show exhibitor and would like a learning experience, let Demetria know asap.
We have 4 table top exhibits spoken for and have room for more if needed.
We have mentors too, and we will all bring blooming orchids (plus you can buy new ones from the vendors), small foliage
plants and empty pots for risers. Black fabric will be available. Labels too.
SIGN UP TODAY as we will need to finalize plans soon.
SET UP will be all day SATURDAY so members and the public will be able to watch.
If you have a blooming orchid you would like shown, please bring it to the Fall Fest by 10AM on Saturday morning for the exhibitors to use.
