You betcha.  The best show our local club ever had was 3 years ago when we
managed to persuade a local garden club to "go in" with us.  They were
completely responsible for the design section, and "we" were responsible
for the horticulture section.  Mother Nature smiled on us that year, and we
had an abundance of bloom.  The designs added a wonderful dimension to the
horticultural display.  There were table arrangements--complete with place
settings, lighted niches, pedestal designs.....it was WONDERFUL!  And we
could see the added interest it generated from passers-by. 

It is also a tremendous amount of work on the part of the garden
clubbers.....and since we exhibit in a mall....the venue can be a bit
"challenging."  Consequently, we can only cajole a club into doing this
with us once every 3 years or so....but what a  spectacle it is!
