Spring Has Sprung Centerpieces
Using the first offerings from the cutting gardens, we will create a gorgeous centerpiece to grace your table (or give to your mom for Mother's Day!). Learn the basics of structuring a flowing, natural looking centerpiece with greens and spring flowers. Bring your mom or a friend along for some quality mother-daughter or girl time; or just come yourself and meet some fellow flower lovers like you!

Monday, September 12 6:30pm Dried Flower Wreath Want to save that summer color in your home or give a thoughtful gift to a special friend for Christmas? Come and enjoy a fun evening out with other flower enthusiasts to create a beautiful dried flower wreath. Made from some of our own flowers lovingly dried here in the barn, get ready to create an "everlasting" decoration for just the spot in your home you've been needing to fill! Taught by Donna, Cost $72
Monday, November 21 6:30pm Boxwood Trees - A New Christmas Classic! These trees look easy to make, but there are a few tricks to them! Come and enjoy learning how to make a new holiday decoration that is very long lasting, as well as beautiful! These little "trees" are about 18" high and are made from little clippings of boxwood inserted into floral foam. Then we will decorate the trees with some holiday accents to make the cutest little tree! A perfect gift for someone who does not have the space for a large tree or just as a focal decoration in your foyer or dining room table.
Taught by Trish, Cost $55
