Floral Centerpieces

If you’re trying to be more environmentally friendly in your flower arranging, this is the workshop for you! Floral designer David Pippin will discuss various techniques for arranging without floral foam. Participants will create an open, airy centerpiece using chicken wire as the mechanics/base in their container. The arrangement you create will be yours to take home.
