Take a break from the stress of the holiday season to enjoy an entertaining and informative afternoon with an orchid expert and come away with an elegant holiday present to give to that special someone on your list or to keep all to yourself.

In a relaxed and convivial session, participants will learn about many aspects of the beloved flower and our endless fascination with it. Orchid history, origins, trivia, fun facts, and basic care instructions are among the topics covered.

In a hands-on activity, all participants create a “holiday orchid centerpiece” by planting an Oncidium Twinkle orchid in a tree fern basket. A bowl to hold the basket and an assortment of holiday decorations are also provided to finalize each masterpiece. Light holiday refreshments and all materials are provided.
