Thanksgiving Centerpiece Workshop
We have had so many requests to offer this class again due to how fun the last one was! Imagine an enjoyable afternoon at our family run flower farm and create a beautiful and unique “garden gathered” bouquet that will adorn your table for Thanksgiving weekend. You will get your choice of pumpkins and gourds to create the perfect vessels that will hold your flowers. Want to create two matching bouquets or one large centerpiece? The choice is yours. First you will learn how to create your live “vase” and then learn design tips and how to choose and care for cut flowers. In addition you will receive instruction about growing flowers using sustainable farming practices, Feel good in knowing that the fresh blooms are grown using organic practices, and the sprawling gardens provide ample space for social distancing.
This workshop is limited to 16 participants. This is an outdoor event with lots of space for everyone to spread out and social distancing will be easy to maintain. There is an open covered area where we hold events to host the class in the event of rain though we will be picking flowers in the garden.
This is a working farm with uneven surfaces so it is best to wear flat shoes.
We have a goat dairy as well as several breeds of heritage chickens, ducks and geese to view and enjoy and our farm is extremely photogenic so make sure you give yourself time to take photos!
Due to the nature of this event there are no refunds though you are welcome to transfer your ticket to another person should you be unable to attend. The class will commence rain or shine as we have a covered area to work. Dress appropriately to pick the flowers however as that will happen outside in the garden rain or shine.
Cost includes tour, demo, flowers, and vessels.
Hand tools (snips, harvest bucket) and workspace will be provided but please bring your own snips if if you have them . Please consider bringing a box or bucket to transport your arrangement home.
