Thank you to Cindy Platt of Urban Garden in Arlington Heights for teaching a class on ways to create a beautiful holiday wreath last Thursday. So full of tips that none of us had ever known... For instance, when using a grape vine wreath base, you aren't supposed to keep it wrapped the way you buy it, but instead pull it apart so the vine is looser. I know, right!? Gives the wreath a completely different look. If you are looking for a gorgeous flower arrangement, Cindy is your floral designer. Check out http://www.urbangardenflowers.com/
and see for yourself. Better yet, visit the shop located in downtown AH.
Here are some pics from Thursday's class. Be sure to mark your calendars for the viewing and bidding of the wreaths which will start November 22 and ends December 4. This is a chance to see creative wreaths from area businesses, youth groups, families, individuals and organizations. All proceeds raised by the wreath auction will benefit the museum.
