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.
