floral design at laurel grove

Thursday, March 1, 2018, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Laurel Grove, 339 Boston Post Road, Sudbury MA

Come for a night of fun and blooms at Laurel Grove.  You will learn how to create a floral arrangement using seasonal flowers in a tin vase. Everything from selecting, preparing and arranging the flowers will be covered. You'll leave with a gorgeous arrangement and the knowledge of how to create one on your own! All materials are included.

Laurel Grove was born out of a desire to help people create spaces they love and that make them happy. We believe that design rules were meant to be broken and the most important thing in a home is that it is filled with love.
