They’re back! Designers David Pippin and Al Brockwell are back in person as they take whatever the Garden throws at them to create designs suitable for the holiday season! Gather ideas for your own holiday embellishments as David and Al explain why they used materials the way they did and show off their final creations. Enjoy a buffet lunch; arrangements will be raffled at the end of the program (containers included).
