Forest Inspired Centerpieces- Workshop this weekend!

Maybe you are getting married and are a DIY extraordinaire.  Maybe you are throwing a party and want people to talk about your crafty talent FOR THE REST OF TIME. Or, maybe you have a small collection of ceramic figurines you hand paint, and you want to pose them in an interesting miniature environment and take billions of pictures to create your own miniature forest adventure animation! Or, maybe you just have nothing better to do and 60 bucks burning a hole in the pocket of your stylish chunky sweater. Whatever the reason, you should join me for a workshop to learn how to make the arrangements you saw in last November’s post “Forest Inspired Centerpieces”.

The fall fun will be going down this Saturday at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden located in Shoreline, Washington at 20312 15th Ave NW, Shoreline WA 98177. It will be taking place outside (so bring that chunky sweater) from 1pm to 3pm. You don’t need to bring anything, unless you have something special in your yard you would like to share or incorporate into your masterpiece.

You MUST preregister with the City of Edmonds or the City of Shoreline recreation departments. The cost of registration is $35.00 to the parks and rec department and you bring $25.00 for the supply fee to me this Saturday.

If you want to register at Edmonds (or are not a Shoreline resident)… go here www.reczone.org or call (425-771- 0230)

If you are a Shoreline resident, call (206-801-2600)

And if you missed it, below is the previously posted “Forest Inspired Centerpieces”

These centerpieces were made for a beautiful dinner event at one of Seattle University’s many elegant event spaces. The centerpieces were made possible by a convenient Alder tree that blew down in my yard.  Flowers included delicious chocolate sunflowers, light orange alstroemerias, orange asters, silvery frog balls, love in a mist pods, echinacea heads (petals removed),  a dyed red willowy eucalyptus, and of course lichen encrusted branch tips as promised. I’m pretty sure that if I were a tiny fantastical forest creature I would like to live in this arrangement.

After the event, some of these peices went to live out their lives at a local coffee shop. Luckily, the light was good and I was able to get some better closeups.
