Garden Style Bouquet Making – May 25, 6:30-8:30 PM


Such a wonderful time to create a garden style trailing bouquet. The peonies are in full bloom and they’re take-your-breath-away-beautiful this year and perfect for lush bouquet making! Snapdragons, campanula, nigella, bupleurum, mock orange, and sweet peas are all ready to join this garden party and there are just so many other sweet fillers and spillers and wildness from the field. Linda will demo a garden style bridal 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 the tail end of spring 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. 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 behind the chicken coop at Aunt Willie’s with views of the open pastures, log barn, and grazing cattle. No prior experience is needed and beginners are welcome. When we’re done creating Linda will style your piece for a photo that you can then share with others. Cost of the workshop includes instruction, all floral materials, ribbon, and flowers to take home at the end of the evening (bring a vase or jar to take extras home). And, if you’re not in a hurry, we’ll head up to the cabin to just sit and visit a little while longer. Please note that registration is not refundablebut should something come up, you can gift a friend your spot.  See below for more details.

We’ll meet at Aunt Willie’s, 207 Bruce Doan Rd., Blountville, 37617 behind the chicken coop, weather permitting. The house is the brick bungalow on the corner of Bruce Doan and Bond Town and you’ll pull right up the driveway as you turn onto Bruce Doan Rd., I’ll try to remember to tie balloons to the telephone pole.  Should the weather not cooperate, we’ll most likely meet in the log barn up the road. Bring nippers if you have them but we will have plenty if you don’t. Dress for a run down old farm. Be prepared to learn a thing or two, enjoy and evening in the country, make a friend, 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.
