An arrangement of flowers can brighten up any room in the house – and also improve your mood. But purchasing a bouquet of flowers from your local florist can be costly. Have you considered arranging flowers from your own garden? It’s easier than you might think.
A floral arranging workshop will be offered with instructor Lily Bruder-Zal. This is another educational event for the community, offered by Ulster County Historical Society.
You will learn professional tips tricks for creating beautiful bouquets and other floral arrangements:
• harvesting cut flowers from your garden
• post-harvest care and conditioning
• constructing a large-scale centerpiece
• making a quick corsage or boutonnière
At the end of the two-hour workshop, you will proudly take home a beautiful display of locally harvested
seasonal flowers you arranged yourself.
Sparkling wine and light snacks will be served during this event.
Lily Bruder-Zal is the owner of Vanishing Point Flower Farm in Highland, NY. Her floral business, called Lily &
Leaf, has created beautiful arrangements for weddings, baby showers and other special occasions.
