Well friends, I think it is safe to say that winter is here!! The snow, the cold, but best of all – the Christmas spirit! The malls have Christmas carols going, people are decorating and I have started my Christmas baking. You know what else is an awesome way to get in the festive mood… wreath making classes this Saturday! As you may know, Travis and I will be teaching some classes and we do still have some spaces available for this of you who are open on Saturday and game to have some holiday fun.

We have a mother/daughter class at 10 am for $120 (each get to take a wreath home) that only has room for a couple more pairs, and then 3 other classes throughout the day for $80. I think this class is such a fun idea and wanted to share with everyone just a bit more information about it.

Everyone will get a pre-greened wreath base, and I want to clarify these won’t be the flat, limply lifeless ones you sometimes see at the grocery stores. No, these will be nice, full wreaths with an assortment of beautiful, healthy Christmas greens. One of my favourite things about fresh Christmas wreaths are the SMELL! Anyway, along with the wreath base we will have tools for everyone, and full assortment of goodies. Ribbons, pine cones, Christmas balls, twigs, artificial sprays all in a range of different colours so that everyone can mix and match to personalize their wreath to their own personal style.

Along with the items listed above, you will be getting the instruction from Travis on how to properly assemble the wreaths. She will show you how to wire all the items securely onto your wreath with proper mechanics so that you wreath will hold up well, and at the end of winter, you could even clip off the items to reuse for the next season. I will be there as well to offer assistance and while everyone is working Travis and I will work our way around the room to lend help where needed and answer any questions. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard from people “I have always wanted to be a florist, it looks like so much fun!”, and while it is definitely a lot of hard work at times it really is a very fun and rewarding job. I am really excited for this opportunity to help people learn a new (and fun!) skill and give a mini peak into the life of a florist.

This class is perfect for the holidays, you can give the wreath as a gift or keep it for yourself, come on your own (we are really quite friendly!) or bring one of your girlfriends for a great time. We will have some warm apple cider to share along with some treats. We know this is a busy time of year and we have received some comments from you guys that while you are interested, you are busy this Saturday. Have no fear! We do have a ton of wreaths so if you have a few friends that would like to take a mini class with us, email Travis at travis@calyxfloraldesign.ca and we can look at setting that up for you. If you haven’t already registered click HERE to do so! Hope to see you there!
