Floral Seasons of the South

The language of flowers is a universal one, where the message changes with the season. The Floral Seasons of the South Workshop will provide a hands-on experience focusing on using garden flowers and local greeneries to bring the outside message in. The workshop is led by local Floral and Décor Designer, Kent Duffey who is known for his creative style and southern roots. While Kent shares secrets of the trade he will demonstrate how to bring creative designs to life. Priced at $95 per guest, the workshop includes all garden florals and supplies, floral vessel, light refreshments and a champagne toast.

Sunday, October 21, starting at 2:30 p.m. Celebrating the Holidays will explore Thanksgiving décor with fall flowers, seasonal greeneries and fruits.
