Perfect Your Flower Arrangement Skills on Zoom


Registration closes on Sunday, April 18 at 5 PM We've all been there - we put a bunch of flowers in a vase imagining how great they will look. They don’t. We move them around and tilt our head. Nope.

Join Amy Seuberth, General Manager of Back to Nature Home & Garden, for a demo on how to arrange flowers in a pleasing way. She will also share tips on how to keep them healthier and looking more beautiful longer. The $40 fee covers your flowers, a mason jar vase, and expert tutorial.
