For The Holidays…Classes To Help You Decorate With Style!

We’re happy to welcome Ellen Riley, former garden editor for Southern Living Magazine, to help us out with some holiday classes, this November and December. If you’re interested in any of these classes, please give us a call as space is limited. All classes will be held on Dyron’s patio next door to the nursery.

Gracious Thanksgiving Centerpieces   Thursday, Nov. 21 10 a.m.

Reservation appreciated. 870-7542     Class $5.00 plus materials.

Come enjoy the season’s abundance and fashion a centerpiece rich with texture, color, and personality. Use your own container (or one of ours), or bring a door basket for a gracious welcome. You choose where to place your handiwork and together we will put together an arrangement fit for the celebration. Besides your container, harvest pretty leaves, branches, or fruit & veggies you may want to incorporate.


Merry Mailboxes           Tuesday, Dec. 3     10 a.m.

Reservation appreciated.   870-7542   Class $5.00 plus materials.

This class is part hands-on, and part demo.  Whether you’re into a ginormous arrangement or a more traditional look, we show you how to put together the perfect display to suit your home’s style and personality.  Face it – the mailbox is the first look we have of your holiday flair. So, let us show you how to do it up right. Besides, it’s pure fun!  Come home with everything you need, and your own hand-made bow.


Winter Terrariums        Dec 10        10 a.m.

Reservations appreciated   870-7542   Class $5.00 plus materials

We have our own Southern version of a winter wonderland, but rarely does it involve snow banks, icy ponds, drooping pine trees, and such. Our chance to see a beautiful flower poking out from freshly fallen snow just doesn’t happen here.  But, we can create a tiny world brimming with winter fantasy.  Bring a clear glass container (or choose one of ours), some pretty small branches and twigs if you have them, and let’s play.


Mantles – Magical and Magnificent Thursday, Dec 17  10 a.m.

Reservations appreciated.  870-7542   Cost $5.00 plus materials

Next to the tree, a mantle is your room’s natural focal point.  Come learn how to make a seasonal showstopper. Bring a container if you like, and any items you want to incorporate.  And, bring pictures of your mantle! If you don’t have one, don’t stay away!  These ideas apply to a sideboard or foyer table as well. Together, we will create the perfect arrangement for your holidays.
