Creating Seasonal Centerpieces

Join the Garden Club on Tuesday, November 2, to learn about creating seasonal centerpieces. For our program, we will be joined by Kim Barker, a local floral designer, who will show us how to "make something out of nothing." This program is an optional hands-on demonstration; either watch and learn, or create one yourself.

Whether you want to watch or do, all members and guests are asked to bring items which can be used in creating the centerpieces, such as: dried sticks, dried flowers, pods, pine cones, silk flowers, and ribbons.

Please join us this Tuesday, November 2, at 6:00 PM, LCC Campus, Cottage Grove, Room 130.

Guests and Visitors welcome. Refreshments provided.
