Women Members Of Garden Club Will View Table Arrangement Displays Friday

Floral Expert To Give Talk At Inglis Home

Membership Cards To Be Required; Reservations Accepted

Four homes will be opened from 2 to 3:15 Friday afternoon tor the women members of the Ann Arbor Garden Club, for a very special display of choice table arrangements, and at 3:30 the members will go to the home of Mrs. James Inglis, 2301 Highland Rd., where a talk will be given by Warren Perrine of Maiden Lane, floral expert, and Mrs. Inglis will be hostess at tea at 4:15.

The “exclusive” social program, for the women members, is something new in the large club which has many men on its list, and the exhibit of table arrangements in the homes also is new, permitting the artist to make use of details more elaborate than she could if all material was taken to some other place.

Mrs. William H. Sellew, 2122 Hill St., will have a formal tea table set with family silver from the treasures of her grandmother and brought by the latter from England.

At the home of Mrs. Bradley M. Patten at 2126 Highland Rd., will be shown a mid-Victorian table setting, arranged by Mrs. Harry S. Hawkins of Church St. and Mrs. C. H. McKinley of Dorset Rd.

Luncheon Table

A formal luncheon table will be done by Mrs. Wells I. Bennett at her home at 500 Highland Rd., with a set of Coalport china in the flower pot design.

The talk by Mr. Perrine at the home of Mrs. Inglis, will touch upon flower table arrangements for special occasions of the season’s holidays, such as Hallowe’en; for entertaining after football games, and for weddings and engagement announcements.

Reservations will be taken by Mrs. E. B. Mains of Lorraine Pl. until tomorrow only, and membership cards will be required.

Plans for the unusual entertainment opening the Garden Club season, were made by the board at a meeting at the home of the president, Mrs. Arnold H. Goss, on Glazier Rd.

Ann Arbor will be host to the regional meeting of the Federated Garden Clubs of Michigan on Oct. 26 at the Michigan League. Representatives from clubs of the region will be here for a business meeting in the morning, luncheon and committee reports in the afternoon.
