Celebrate the bounty of fall by creating a lush floral arrangement using fresh cut seasonal flowers from a local farm. Donna will teach you the elements of floral design and color theory using a variety of plant materials so you can produce a stunning autumnal centerpiece. All supplies are provided, but please bring hand pruners and a medium-to-large box to transport finished arrangements.
This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Friday, October 13, 2023.
