As an alternative to the traditional round wreath, door garlands present a vertical 4’ display on a door offering more curb appeal.  Students will have a choice of material to select from to design their garland.  Many folks use these down the dining table as a versatile centerpiece without consuming too much space.  Visually they offer a modern twist on a Williamsburg style.

Potted Amaryllis with Holiday trim

Hobbyist Level
Thursday, December 7th
, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30p.m.

This class will be held at MUM, 37 N. Williams St, Crystal Lake, IL

Amaryllis are synonymous with Christmas.  More than the pointsettia that seems to decline from the moment you get it home (partly due to the fact that it’s native to Mexico and therefore not a friend to cooler temperatures) the amaryllis is captivating to watch develop towards the dramatic blooming climax.

In the class students will learn to choose the right potting medium, plant and construct a trellis with red twig dogwood and the addition of bright red winterberry.

Limit 6 students  Please bring gloves if you need to avoid getting your hands dirty.

$40.00

The tillandsia (commonly called air plants) Come in many forms and sizes.  Some have large curving silver foliage while others seem like some sort of appealing sea creature.  We’ll be designing with these in a modern glass and copper terrarium.  Branches, stones and gravel will be just a few of the items available that students can use to construct their own green world.  We’ll talk about care for your garden so that you can enjoy it for a long time.

Limit 6 students

Students should bring a paring knife or florist knife to use.

Holiday Centerpiece Revere Bowl

Hobbyist Level,

Thursday, December 14th ,  6:15p.m.-8:15p.m.

This class will be held at MUM, 37 N. Williams St, Crystal Lake, IL

I’m a big fan of exploring the various textures of conifers, broadleaf foliage such as magnolia and bayleaf, vibrant red stems of ilex and a mix of white Dutch flowers.  No carnations and cushion mums, in this class students will be using premium flowers as we do in our higher-end studio work.

As the holiday approaches, much of  this design (if kept well-watered) can be the showstopper of your buffet or dining table until the big day.

Limit 5 students

Students should bring a paring or pocket knife, a garden pruner and an apron if desired.

All classes must be paid in advance, no refunds will be made later than 7 days before any class.
