Re: Spring Iris Show Ideas

I have been Show chair for The Inland Iris Society for 7 years.  We 
don't have many arrangers so encouraging participation is a must.  If 
you have many advanced arrangers then descriptions can be 
challenging, ask them what they think.  I have found that 'Arranger's 
Choice' leaves the most flexibility.  Any container and design style 
can be used.  Only the design name gives guidance.   For novices this 
seems like madness but finding containers and pinholders (frogs) is 
difficult, time consuming and expensive.   Every word in a 
description restricts and eliminates potential designs because of 
lack of containers, iris color, etc.   The design class I received 
the most favorable feed back from was "Vegtables" - Aranger's 
Choice.  Several new arrangers entered because it inspired them. 

Hope this helps.
