On Friday, October 3,  2014 the Junior Virginia Beach Garden Club participated in the Norfolk Botanical Gardens ‘Flutter Fantasy Fall Party.’
Designing with over 20 large potted mums, 40 lbs of sphagnum moss, 50 blocks of oasis, 5 large rolls of sheet moss and fresh cut flowers and greens from the gardens themselves, 6 members of the Junior Virginia Beach Garden Club were asked to decorate a larger than life size butterfly topiary for the unveiling of the new entrance for the NBG Butterfly Garden. After several hours of soaking oasis, cutting and arranging hundreds of individual flowering mums and finishing her off with moss and fabulous antennae, a beautiful butterfly emerged and received an abundance of compliments from many of the party guests!
The JVBGC also participated in 2013, designing a flamingo topiary for the NBG 75th Anniversary Celebration.
