With the guidance of instructor Melissa Palmer, use the colors of the season—red, white, and more—and the charming holiday elements of pinecones and candy canes to bring a playful and whimsical touch to your floral design. 

Holiday Village Workshops are part of Longwood @ The Creamery, engaging horticultural experiences offered throughout the year in a spirited community space. These workshops are offered during the Kennett Square Holiday Village Market, and each one includes a seasonal cocktail and admission to Longwood Gardens on the date of the workshop.
