Landon Azalea Festival party

This weekend Landon School is holding its annual azalea festival. They sell plants and gifts and their wonderful azalea garden, dedicated to twin boys who died in World War II, is open to the public. The variety of azaleas is breathtaking. There was an opening party on Thursday night and we helped the volunteers make simple centerpieces - a single cymbidium stalk in a water filled cylinder, and we made a large buffet arrangement, pictured here. My friend Ann was in charge of the total decor and thought to hang 100 paper parasols upside down from 6 cords hung from the top of the tent - it was lovely and clever.
