Instructor: Trisha Botz

Garlands and wreaths are no longer strictly used during the holiday season. They’ve become quite popular, which comes as no surprise because they’re fabulous regardless of the season or event! We love when garland uses a variety of greenery because it adds texture and depth .

Join us during our Wine & Design class where we will walk you step by step through making a lush garland of seeded eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus, ruscus, etc.

You will leave class with a gorgeous 3 foot garland, tips and tricks for handling greenery, and enjoy 10% off our variety of fresh cut flowers immediately following class!
