The Caledonian Society of Bermuda’s

Annual Burns Supper will be at Tucker’s Point Hotel and Spa on Saturday, January 26. A Burns Supper is a celebration of the life of the Scottish poet Robert Burns, author of many famous poems and songs, including Auld Lang Syne.

You do not have to be a literary buff to enjoy this, you just have to enjoy cocktails, dinner, poetry and entertaining toasts and speeches. The pre-dinner cocktail reception (cash bar) runs from 6.30pm until 7.15pm, with the five-course dinner beginning at 7.30pm.

From 10am until 11.30am, Marguerite Clark and Nikki Begg from Bermuda Bride will help you learn how to use flowers to accent your wedding.

You are invited to bring along any colour swatches, inspirational images and material that you’d like to work with. The cost is $25 per person.

A second session, Brighten Your Home With Flowers, takes place Monday, January 28 from 6pm until 8pm. Learn how to arrange flowers in your own vase, and how to create a stunning floral arrangement from a dish in your kitchen cupboard!
