Floral Design with Foraged Finds

The change of seasons artfully expressed in a beautiful flower arrangement is a delight to behold.  As gardens, woodlands, and meadows wind down into the cooler months, interesting and unique items collected from nature can be integrated into floral designs.  This lively demonstration will illustrate how to find, prepare, and incorporate gathered pods, seed capsules, berries, cones, twigs and other treasures in a fresh bouquet to celebrate autumn’s arrival.
