Williamsburg Candle Ring Workshop

WHEN: Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 9:30AM - 12:30PM
WHERE: Carriage House

Join us to create a lush wreath of flowers and berries and other plant materials for your Thanksgiving table. Working in a base of wet floral foam attached to a plastic tray, we will combine flowers and leaves in rich autumn colors with vegetables, fruits, nuts, and berries to create a striking harvest centerpiece. The finished wreath measures about 15” across. The center of the ring can comfortably hold candles or a compote. During the class, you will learn how to switch out some of the autumn décor, so that your ring can also be used for winter holidays.

All materials will be provided by the instructor, Betsy Williams. Be sure to bring floral scissors and an apron. Tea and scones will be served.
Pre-registration is required

    The gardens are going through a bittersweet transition from June’s hurrah to a mid-summer huzzah, and although we sometimes experience a “July gap,” the shift seems pretty seamless this year. Delicate oxeye daisies gave way almost overnight to beefy Shastas, echinaceas, and rudbeckias. Sturdy summer phlox are taking over, as we speak, for the elegance […]
  • Past Due! (Jul 11, '14)
    It is very hard to believe that a month has passed since my last post, Getting it done. ¬†Even more incredulous are the vast changes the garden has seen since that time. For instance, the peas went from looking like this… To being a week past due for pulling out! I had been hoping they […]
