The busy holiday season has come and gone and the gray winter doldrums have set in everywhere EXCEPT in the bright and cheerful shop of Atwood Florist on Atwood Avenue. This sunny floral shop is home to flowers, flowers and more flowers ~ colorful flowers that bring sunshine to every space and that lighten every room.
Owned by John Dick, a florist for over 25 years, Atwood Florist is where magic happens every season and for every occasion. John has created a great way to bring COLOR back to this otherwise monochrome time of year ~ introducing his first annual Valentine’s Heart Wreath Making classes! Think roses, Cupids, hearts, X’s & O’s, teddy bears and everything romantic!
Beginning on January 14th and going until January 25th, John will lead “do-it-yourself” wreath making classes for groups of crafters of 8 to 16 participants! For only $45, students will go home with a unique wreath of their own making! The $45 includes everything you will need to make this beautiful and custom-made creation with one of two options to choose from. Both wreaths are 20” tall and 2” thick ~ they are truly statement pieces that will beautify the décor in your home.
The first option is a playful tulle wreath with a heart-shaped Styrofoam base and lots and lots of tulle! Pink tulle! Red tulle! Romantic and flirty tulle! You can embellish these gorgeous wreaths with a selection of sweet accent pieces that John has provided.
The second option is a heart-shaped wreath made of mossy grapevine to be decorated with silk roses, ribbons, pearls and more accent pieces (and a healthy dose of hot glue!) Each wreath is a visual masterpiece that you can proudly say you made all by yourself!
If you need a way to break the monotony of this long month, gather your craft-loving friends and sign up for a group class. Don’t worry if your group does not meet the minimum of eight members ~ John will set you up with another group (not to exceed 16!). Refreshments and beverages are also provided so the whole class is full of fun, creativity, laughter, snacks and beauty – just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Sign up today for your class. Weekday classes begin at 6:00pm at night while weekend classes begin at 3:00pm.
