Mohonasen High School student Christina Frederickson showcased her talents last weekend at the New York State Museum during the annual New York in Bloom show.
This 25th annual event for florists, garden clubs and flower enthusiasts highlights the floral design talent of the region and challenges participants to design pieces to match the location of the museum in which they were displayed.
Fredrickson worked alongside fellow Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School student Gabrielle Manchester and their teacher Meg Bugler for the event. Frederickson and Manchester developed an arrangement to compliment an antique fire truck display while Ms. Bugler designed arrangements to fit a New York City streetscape from the 1930s.
“It was a great opportunity to meet people in the industry, members of garden clubs and florists and to learn from them,” Frederickson said.
