“The Richness of Fall” Program Thursday, October 5 at 10:30 am

Kyle Riccoboni, floral designer extraordinaire and owner of his own business Modern Houseplant, will encourage us to think outside of the box when making our own seasonal arrangements. Nature has so many wonderful textures during autumn and by foraging for materials from your garden, you can create some beautiful fall arrangements.

You’ll be inspired and delighted!
