2017 Happily Ever After – Wedding Design Workshop September 25-27 SOLD OUT!

Come join us at our century old farm for our second annual Wedding Design Workshop where we’ll share a bit of how to grow and a lot of how to create for weddings. Each will get experience with loose style arranging using our farm fresh flowers and foliage. Participants will be led to create the free style of bridal bouquet and maid’s bouquet Linda enjoys most as well as a table piece and personal flowers including flower necklaces. We’ll also get experience with arbors, mantles, stairways, windowsills, and more as we transform the Homeplace built by Roy’s great grandfather in 1870 into a Happily Ever After venue overflowing with lush arrangements we’ll create together.

Time is built in to just relax and enjoy the simple beauty of a family flower farm tucked in the mountains of East Tennessee. Enjoy our three state panoramic views, wander the farm gathering woodland floral crown makings, and dine al fresco at each of 3 houses on the farm. Our workspaces and will include the Homeplace, the transformed Chicken Coop originally built in 1939, and even our screened-in porch.
