Your last go at a handpicked floral arrangement left you with poison oak and a plastic fern.
It’s time for a lesson that won’t leave you itching for more.
Like an intro-level bloom class at Wisteria. In a beautiful cottage near Mount Vernon, owner Stephanie Meuse Melvin’s two-part series demonstrates how to make seasonal centerpieces with a focus on flowers you can pick on public grounds.
Melvin provides tools, vessels, and fresh flowers galore, so the only thing you’ll need is your game face. If you have a favorite vase (who doesn’t?), bring it. Try customizing an arrangement to fit.
She’ll even tailor sessions for your group of friends or DIY party.
Which will do more than scratch the surface.
Wisteria, 8808 Danewood Drive, Alexandria (703 360-1042 or wisteriaflorals.com). Next session, Tuesday, 7 p.m.
