Fall Holiday Arrangement
Saturday, November 15, from 9am - 12 noon, $35 Join Master Gardener Phyllis Mihalik to make your very own fall holiday container arrangement. Need something on the porch to welcome guests during the holidays, a festive touch on the hearth, jazz up the dining room for Thanksgiving or maybe a hostess gift? You'll turn a classic 10-12" flower pot into a beautiful fall holiday decoration. Phyllis has sweet annie, sedum, dried grasses, berries, curly willow, hydrangea, astilbe, tansy, bittersweet and more to work with. Then you'll top off your creation with a gorgeous florist bow. As an extra treat, Phyllis will show you how, with a few simple changes, you can convert your fall arrangement to a winter/Christmas decoration. So join us for this craft from the garden and bring a friend to share the fun.
