For 33 years Chris Giftos wowed the world with the fabulous flower arrangements he created for the great hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the magical settings he designed for the museums parties and special events. The great hall arrangements – spectacular on a grand scale – became so famous that people went to the museum just to see them. Chris believes that flowers set the tone and should say “welcome – we’ve been expecting you”. In this illustrated talk and demonstration Chris will share wonderful stories of his time at the Met and of the interesting people he met along the way while showing us how to create beautiful arrangements on a simpler scale for our homes.
At the conclusion of this Barn Talk the arrangements Chris creates will be part of a raffle.
