ASCFG MEMBERS ONLY – Garden Style Bouquet, August 31, 6-8 p.m.

$150.00

This workshop is for Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers Inc. (ASCFG) members ONLY as an add on to the ASCFG Farm Tour at our farm, Tuesday, August 31.  Please do not register if you are not a part of this group.

Such a wonderful time of summer to create a garden style trailing bouquet. The lisianthus, dahlias, zinnias, and celosia are in bloom, limelight and tardiva hydrangea are open, and there are just so many other sweet fillers and spillers and wildness from the field. Linda will demo a garden style bouquet with flowers spilling over casually and will explain the principles of design that will allow each participant to create a beautiful bouquet using all the bounty summer provides. We’ll actually make a smaller bouquet to begin just to practice the spiral technique a bit, then each will gather material and create a larger bouquet. And because we’re all flower farmers, Linda will talk specifically about what’s best to grow and a bit about how she’s developed her style of arranging. Gentle guidance will be offered and help provided when needed but the variety of floral material make this bouquet one all can master. We’ll tie up our creations and add sweet trailing ribbon for the finishing touch. Your bouquets will be ready to walk down the aisle or drop into a vase as a centerpiece.

We’ll work at the Homeplace and can move indoors if the weather doesn’t cooperate. No prior experience is needed and beginners are welcome. Cost of the workshop includes instruction, all floral materials, ribbon, and a vase for your creation. Please note that registration is not refundable. See below for more details.

Description

We will gather at the Homeplace, 399 Bruce Doan Rd., Blountville, TN 37617. This is the place where the morning tour begins near the dahlia beds. Bring nippers if you bring them easily but we will have plenty. If the weather isn’t cooperating, we’ll meet inside the Homeplace or in the Log Barn.  If you grow something you would like to bring along, please do, the more material the merrier. Be prepared to learn and share a thing or two, enjoy an evening in the country, and create something beautiful.  If you have questions, you may text Linda at 423-367-0361.  Space is limited to provide individual attention and to allow for social distancing.

Masks are not required if we are outdoors, but will be required if we move inside.
