The Monroe Garden Study League, member of The Garden Club of America, held a GCA Flower Show at the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens on October 19-21, celebrating all things fashion and flowers. Chaired to perfection by Kristin Brown and Debbie Stockstill, the flower show featured stunning floral arrangements, inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s Little Black Dress, Hermes scarves, vintage Vogue covers, “It” bags and colorful chapeaus; award-winning horticultural specimens; botanical arts, including shoes, buckles and rings made from dried plant materials; and a photography exhibit. In addition, Anu Lal, Lori French, Hope Robertson and Jennifer Parker along with Kristy Farr created a “Recycle Runway” for the Conservation exhibit by turning recyclable materials into haute couture. Said MGSL President Carolyn Barnes, “Vogue en Fleurs was a success beyond measure! This show set a standard of excellence that will long be remembered.”

Once judging and awards were handed out, the entire event at the Biedenharn’s expansive facilities was open free to the public for viewing. Sponsors for the flower show were Dr. and Mrs. Douglas C. Brown, who also treated visiting judges to a Vogue en Fleur dinner party at Bayou DeSiard Country Club. Caroline Brown is a founding member of MGSL and is recognized for her devotion to the club and to the GCA.

In case you missed the Vogue en Fleurs flower show, please mark your calendars for the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens Christmas celebration. Monroe Garden Study League will be decorating Emy-Lou Biedenharn’s home for the holiday season once again this year, and you are invited to share in the joy of the season (and you can have a 5 cent Coca-Cola) at the Biedenharn!
