Nov 15 or 16th - Porch Pots
Decorate your containers for the holiday season before the snow starts to fly! Create a holiday porch pot to take with you and learn how to make your existing containers festive. We will be using natural elements collected from the gardens to create stunning arrangements.

Nov 22nd or 23rd - Wreath Making
Get ready for an evening of crafting and relaxation. We will sit back with a festive warm drink to create an 18” balsam wreath by hand. We will be assembling the wreaths with balsam tips, along with other natural elements to create a gorgeous wreath that you can be proud of.

Nov 29 or 30th - Gnomes
Hey gnomies! Let’s make some festive evergreen gnomes to accent your outdoor holiday decor. The three foot gnomes will be assembled using tomato cages adorned with spruce and pine boughs, along with hats, mittens and noses. Gnomes are the perfect way to spruce up your home!

Dec 6 or 7th - Kissing Balls
Throughout history, kissing balls were hung over entryways as a beacon for blessings and good tidings to all who walked underneath it. Kissing balls are making a comeback in holiday traditions because of their natural beauty and good fortune. You will learn how to make a decorated kissing ball using evergreen tips and various other stems. Take home this beautiful feature to decorate your entryway for the holiday season.

Dec 13th - Holiday Centerpieces 
Everyone needs a holiday centerpiece to complete their holiday place setting! Come and learn how to create and care for a beautiful holiday centerpiece using evergreens, dogwoods, dried flowers and berries. You will be able to take home your arrangement to show off during the holidays.

These events are all outdoors, please dress for the weather.
Registration for each workshop closes the morning beforehand so we can gather materials, please plan accordingly.
