We’re taking this fan-favorite show on the road! Join us off-site at Eagle Construction of VA’s Design Center (10618 Patterson Ave, Henrico, VA 23238) for an evening of floral design fun! We’ll kick off the evening at 6 pm with Happy Hour, which will include grazing stations of hors d’oeuvres and a non-alcoholic beverage (included) and a selection of alcoholic beverages (for purchase) in a beautifully-adorned gathering space. Catering will be provided by JewFro, a fusion of Jewish and African cuisine.

Then: the main event! Designers David Pippin and Al Brockwell will each have the same assortment of floral materials, from which they will arrange four unique floral arrangements with fall flair. You’ll laugh through the evening while gaining ideas for your own fall decor. David and Al will provide tips and tricks along the way and show off their final creations in this friendly competition. All 8 arrangements will be raffled at the end of the program (containers included)! This event is perfect for date night or an evening out with friends.

Please note: this event is being hosted off-site at Eagle Construction of VA’s Design Center located at 10618 Patterson Ave, Henrico, VA 23238.
