Centerpiece Workshop and Bucket of Flowers, Saturday, July 15, 9:30-11:30 a.m.

It’s been such a wonderful Spring for flowers!  Plentiful rains have the dahlias , hydrangea, zinnias, scabiosa, ammi, and so much more blooming to their hearts content. Our first ever flower CSA sold out quickly and is in full swing. The wedding season is going strong and once again we have the sweetest brides in the TriCities!

With so many blooms and more to come we’ve decided it’s time to host a Centerpiece Workshop. Each participant will create a centerpiece in her/his choice of containers ranging from teapots to more formal vessels. Linda will create a demo arrangement using all things summer and will teach the mechanics that allow the free overflowing style she has come to love, then will gently guide participants in creating their own arrangements. After the last flower is in place all will harvest armloads of flowers from the dahlia bed and hoop house so each can take a bucket ($60 value) home to create more beauty.  And, participants will be helping others as a percentage of our profits will be gifted to the Mid South Chapter of the Alzheimers Association in Kingsport.

Cost of the workshop, including flowers, vessel, bucket of flowers, instruction, and light refreshments is $125. Workshop must be prepaid and is nonrefundable. Must have 4 participants for workshop to carry with 10 participants maximum. Click here for more registration details.
