FLOWERS 101 AND FLORAL DESIGN:  MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWER CROWN
Join us for an evening of design in our second floral design class.  In this class we will be exploring using live fresh flowers and greens to design our own one-of-a-kind flower crowns.  If you have ever wanted to create your own crown for a special event or just for fun and are not sure where to start, the instructor will lead a demo for a handful of different crown styles and participants will get to create their own to take home!  This makes a great gift for a loved one or as an activity to share with a friend.  A materials fee of $15 is payable to the instructor the first night of class.  No discounts apply.
