Sept 18th 11AM Fragrant Natural Herb Wreath and Luncheon

**Event FULL**

A natural wreath made from herbs from the garden makes a gorgeous wreath for the kitchen. During Victorian times herbs were tied together in bouquets. The herbs used had a symbolic meaning. In modern times the herb wreath takes the place of the bouquets. This wreath will be appreciated for its beauty and lovely fragrance. We start our wreath with a 14 inch wreath frame. When the wreath is finished it will be 20-22 inches. Herbs we will be working with: bay, lavender, monarda, mountain mint, oregano, sage, thyme, yarrow, rosemary and orange slices. A luncheon is provided after we make our wreaths. $59.00 register and pre-pay, limited to 12.
