Romance and Roses Floral Design Workshop

The Romance and Roses Floral Design Class on January 30th was so popular that we added a new class.  We will hold Romance and Roses on Wednesday, January 16th at 7 p.m.  The cost is $125 and in the class we will create two designs focusing on roses including a tight, compact design of two dozen roses.  If you love roses, you will love, love, love this class -- and feel more confident the next time you buy roses at the grocery store.

Call 703-548-2848 or e-mail to register.
