A few weeks ago, I was invited to a private wreath making class with the Lex Blogger Fam hosted by Springhouse Gardens. The class was held on-site at their historic the Barn at Springhouse in Nicholasville, Kentucky. Springhouse Gardens is located just outside Lexington, Kentucky, so it was a short drive.
Certain rain was in the forecast, so living in the heart of bourbon county, Rich of Springhouse Gardens buried some bourbon beforehand to ward it off. He dug the bourbon up just as the even was starting, so that guests could enjoy some bourbon cider. There were also yummy treats provided by The Crumbled Cookie and Mrs. Roger’s Fabulous Favorites. If you live in central Kentucky and you’re looking for some tasty Christmas treats, checkout these local companies!
The class kicks off with Rich demonstrating the wreath making process. He explains how many pieces of greenery to have per each bundle (5-7 pieces), how to layer the greenery to get the look that you want, how to control the size of your wreath, and how to attach the bundles of greenery to the wire wreath holder. Not only is he very thorough, but he is also super helpful as you make your own wreath. If something isn’t looking right or the way you want it, then he will help get your wreath back on track. Kane even got in on the wreath making process:)
The great thing about these Christmas wreaths is that it’s hard to mess them up. You may not get the exact look you’re going for, but your wreath will still look great! While I have experience working with greenery and florals, I can tell you that this class is good for any skill level. Even if you’ve never worked with anything like this before, you’ll still be successful at making a wreath!
I finished my wreath with a beautiful buffalo plaid ribbon made by Debbie. It was such a fun experience with my friends!!!! If you’re looking for a Christmas experience to have this holiday season, then you should totally do this wreath making class!
There is one last public wreath making class being held on Tuesday, December 5 at 5 p.m. called Happy Hour at the Barn. There will be a happy hour followed by the wreath making class. Get all the details here, including how to register. You can also call to see if they have availability left for a private wreath making class for you and a group of friends.
