Wanna be a Floral Designer?
Our April program features the Blossom Boys, popular Chicago florists, who will be teaching us some of the finer points of flower arranging. We had a great time when they presented in 2015, learned a lot, and went home with beautiful creations that they guided us through making. Keep the evening of April 6th open and look forward to sharing their expertise!
Thanks to the Evergreen Park Public Library and their director, Nicki Seidl, for their unwavering support!
