Scrumptious Holiday Wreath Class in the Studio!

A huge Thank You! to Lauren Brooks who offered to document the wreath making class last Monday.

Starting with a fir bough wreath, everyone created a rich arrangement that included clusters of bright berries and fruits, dried seedpods, cones and succulents, holiday spices, woodland gleanings and exotic orchid blossoms.

The results were stunning!

    Françoise, thanks for teaching the inspiring class – once again, it got me looking at plants in new ways. I love your classes. Am I becoming a regular yet? I see I have a few competitors in that department! Lauren’s photos really captured the warm, supportive atmosphere, too.
