Sweet Smell of Halloween

Halloween preparations are underway at The Vale with residents learning how to create a themed, floral, table centre, under the guidance of tutor, Di Robertson.

Freesias and rosemary provided the fragrance whilst Autumn flowers and foliage, fresh and dried, including roses, gypsophila and alstroemeria, added a splash of colour.

There were colourful and quirky ceramic containers, including a Halloween pumpkin mug and a witch’s black cat vase.

One newcomer to the group turned out to be a star performer, channelling her inner creativity with her display.

Residents took their arrangements back to their apartments to complete the finishing touches in time for the Halloween celebrations.
