Winter Workshops at McArdle's: Floral Design with McArdle's Design Team

Get Excited for our Winter Workshops!

Hello again, friends! Today we're taking a little break from Valentine's Day talk. Now, you shouldn't forget about your Valentine, so if you need some gift inspiration, click here. For the moment, though, we're excited about our upcoming workshops. Through the late winter we'll be inviting you all into our floral studio for some hands on fun. So, get hype, as the young people say. I'm going to talk you through the upcoming  Winter workshops.

Designing with Citrus:

On Friday, February 23rd from 10 to 11:30am, we'll be holding "When Life Gives You Lemons." Some of you may be familiar with Flemish floral design, which often incorporates fruit. Likewise, you may have seen the work of Paula Pryke, a British designer who often lines her vases with citrus slices. We'll be teaching you to do the same! Our designers will guide you through the process of creating a lovely arrangement incorporating slices of citrus. To register for this or any of our workshops, click here. The registration fee for this workshop is $75. By the way, the registration fee for each workshop also includes the cost of materials.

Learning the Art of the Hand Tied Bouquet:

Spring Bouquet

This Winter Workshop, held on Saturday, February 24th from 10 to 11:30am, will help you chase away those "Winter Blues." Our designers will teach you how to hand tie a bouquet and a few other techniques to help you design. It's the perfect treat for yourself if you've been looking out the window lately, and craving some color. Come chase away all this grey with us! This workshop is BYOV, bring your own vase. So be sure to grab your favorite on the way out the door. The registration fee for this workshop is $50.


Get Spring-y with it:

On Friday, March 9th from 10am to 12pm, we'll show participants how to "Welcome Spring" with a cheerful Spring wreath! Wreath making is always a customer favorite among our Winter workshops. You'll be creating a grapevine wreath decorated with permanent botanicals (aka silk flowers) and other decorative materials. Essentially you'll pick what you like, and we will guide your hand. The registration fee for this workshop is $150.

Luck Of The Irish:

The last of our Winter Workshops will be held from 10 to 11:30am on Saturday, March 17th. It's all about "Luck of The Irish!" We'll help you create a magical arrangement using natural green flowers and other lucky blooms.  Proudly display your creation in your home!  The registration fee for this workshop is $65.
So, thanks for reading, friends. I hope you're as excited for our Winter Workshops as I am! If you have any questions about the structure of the workshops or how to register, just give us a call at 203-661-5600 or write to us at [email protected] We'll be happy to hear from you. In the meantime, don't forget about Valentine's Day. We can help with that too. See you soon!
