Speaker’s Topic:
Please join us for a “Fun and Festive” Culinary/Craft Demonstration.  DEMONSTRATIONS WILL BE GIVEN TWICE; EVERYONE WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND BOTH.

After a short networking session and brief business meeting, half of the members will be asked to sit in the kitchen for a cooking class by Diane Fisher of “Catering by Design.”  Diane will show the group how to make a delicious Baked Brie along with several different serving options.  Everyone will receive this recipe and will have the chance to sample the dish.

The other half of the group will be seated in their workroom for a floral design demonstration.  Using a collection of springs most beautiful flowers, Sheila Banasik will demonstrate how to create a door or wall wreath.  In addition, Sheila will show the group ways to reflect the personality of your home and give it that “signature splash.”  Vickie Campbell will show the group just how easy it is to make a beautiful bow.

Best of all, Perennial Accents is offering a 15% discount on all store purchases the evening of our meeting.

Speaker’s Biography:
Perennial Accents is a family-owned business that modestly began in 1995 growing perennial plants and then drying them to use in arrangements. Linda Frazee, Vickie, and Sheila are a mother and two-daughter team. Linda, Vickie and Sheila work off of each other's strengths and have had the satisfaction of seeing their business grow each and every year.

Vickie Campbell (daughter of Linda) graduated from business school (Davenport University).  After working as an Office Manager for a local company for ten years, she joined her mother in the pursuit of their own business and opened Perennial Accents.

Sheila Banasik (daughter of Linda) worked in International Sales at a local company, after having her first child and wanting a more flexible schedule, she decided to go the the Chicago Floral Design School and join her sister and mother at Perennial Accents.
