Spring Floral Centerpiece, Tues April 18th, 5:30-7:30


So much beauty is blossoming on the farm this week we decided it’s time for a centerpiece workshop! Lilacs are just opening up along with bridal veil spirea,dogwood, ranunculus, anemone, dames rocket, viburnum, a few late double daffodils and tulips.  Sweet peas and snapdragons may make an appearance along with other spring bloomers and all work beautifully in table arrangements. The early spring green foliage is such a sweet compliment to it all and finishes it off with a flourish.

I am so excited to have Kim Dalglish, a guest designer joining us from Scotland. Kim and I met at a workshop earlier this spring and she will join us on the farm while in the area visiting her son. I love her design and her story. Most of her weddings are in castles and most of her grooms are wearing kilts! Kim recently was awarded the 10th Official Scottish Wedding Florist Awards 2023.

One of Kim’s happy couples!

You can see her beautiful work on instagram @kimdalglishflorist. Kim and i will each demo a centerpiece in a vessel that allows flowers to spill over casually and will explain the principles of design that will allow each participant to create a lush long lasting arrangement using all the bounty spring provides. Gentle guidance will be offered and help provided when needed but the variety of floral material make this arrangement one all can master. We’ll work outside at the Homeplace and move inside if inclement weather. No prior experience is needed and beginners are welcome. When we’re done creating we will style your piece for a photo that you can then share with others. Cost of the workshop includes instruction, all floral material, vessel, and perhaps a few extra flowers to take home at the end of the evening. Registration is not refundable but if you can’t attend you can send a friend in your place. See below for more details.
