Designing with the Stars to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters
Shelley’s Flowers & Gifts in Waldoboro will again host Designing with the Stars on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 4 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to come and participate in this fun-filled event, cheering on their favorite designer.
Designing with the Stars features community members as floral design contestants. Each designer will be given the same flowers and container to create their own holiday masterpiece. The designer with the most votes will be declared the winner. This year’s contestants are Dawna Barbour, Kristi Bisset, James Bodman, Audrey Ennamorati, Jeff Hurd, Danny Jackson, Amie Lee and Kat Skov. These designers represent the local community.
The design-off will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. Friends, neighbors and co-workers are invited to come and vote for their favorite design and designer. Contestants will be collecting votes at the design-off and beforehand. The public is encouraged to support their favorite by voting early and often. Each vote is $1. All proceeds from voting will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Midcoast Maine.
On the evening of the event shoppers will enjoy viewing the designs, cheering on the designers, and sampling homemade delectables and adult beverages. There will also be a 20 percent shopper’s discount.
This event gets the holiday season off to a great start and benefits a worthy organization.
