Nina Wiskus and Channing Baker, Bloomfield Floral Designs
Come to the Arboretum to create a show-stopping holiday wreath and sample local wines! You will begin with a quick introduction to local wines, then sip and snack as Nina and Channing instruct you in how to prep the foliage and elements for the wreath, wreath construction techniques, and how to use unique natural elements for holiday decor beyond pinecones and holly. Then it’s time to begin creating your masterpiece from silvery materials such as fir, cotton bolls, lunaria and snow berries. You will go home with a beautiful creation perfect for welcoming holiday visitors, and the skills needed to make more wreaths in the future. A fun annual tradition!
SUGGESTED: Bring gloves and pruners, and a box to bring your creation home.
