I'll be hosting a series of intimate design classes and I hope you can join me for one of them. If you are interested in organizing a one on one or a group class of your own with your bridesmaids, mamas or friends, shoot me an email and let's get something on the schedule that is perfect for you! All current classes will be taught at my home studio in Newville PA 17241
Sunday November 19th 10am-3pm Thanksgiving and Seasonal Holiday Party Design
Are you hosting Thanksgiving and don't know what to do for flowers? Whether you want a simple centerpiece or an elaborate install, we will cover options for each and every occasion. We’ll cover construction basics for simple centerpieces, that effortless garland on the table look, and even hanging installs with twinkle lights! Students will then create a centerpiece to take home and will work as a group to design a tablescape and simple greenery install. Leave with the knowledge and tools to design gorgeous celebrations for any occassion. Open to all levels of experience.
Saturday December 9th 10am-3pm Wreathes, Garlands, and Holiday Arrangements
I love the Christmas season, and the more trees, wreathes, and garlands I can get in my home, the better! I will teach you how to forage for greens that will hold up better than others, and tips for extending their lives for the season. We'll cover wreathes of all sizes (tiny little 6 inch buddies are possibly my favorite thing to design ever!), garlands, swags and general wintery seasonal arrangements to bring a bit of the Holiday spirit to your home or as gifts for friends and family! Students will complete a small garland or swag and will leave with a beautiful custom wreath, & the knowledge and tools to create additional gorgeous holiday designs at home. Open to all levels of experience.
