Making Wreaths of Christmas Legends

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Decorate your entryway with a fresh green wreath filled with fragrance and legends! The stories and textures of our ancient, traditional holiday greens come to life in this lovely 18” wreath. Begin with a 14' fresh boxwood wreath then enhance it with the needled herbs of Christmas: pine, juniper and rosemary. Finish the wreath with trails of ivy, sprigs of holly, fresh bay leaves, pinecones and seasonal berries. You will learn the Christmas stories of each of the greens as you work. 

Space is limited; Reservations required.
