The 45th Annual Linganore New Market Community Show was held September 29 to October 2 in the auxiliary gym. Community members entered entered  artwork, food, agricultural products, crafts, and more.

Mr. Tom Hawthorne and Mrs. Patricia Beachy’s horticulture classes entered a variety of flower arrangements and boutonnieres.  Since the first day of school they have been practicing the boutonniere to make it perfect for when they entered in the show.

The boutonniere process starts with finding a piece of leather leaf fern. Then, students choose a focal flower which has to be a little smaller than the leaf.  Popular flowers include roses and carnations. Students put floral wire through the flowers so they don’t fall apart. Then they use green tape to attach those together. For extra beauty, add baby’s breath and put it under the focal flower and tape it together. Finally students add a bow and attach that knot completely under the baby breath.

Sophomore Xander Mcclure said, “I like making boutonnieres because you can make one for homecoming and not have to pay for it.”

Students can order boutonnieres and corsages for homecoming. Wrist corsages are $15 and boutonnieres are $5. They will be displayed in the cafeteria on October 4 and 5. See Mr. Hawthorne in room B126 or Mrs. Beachy in room B124 to place an order.

The Knot provides step by step easy directions.
