What started as a chilly morning quickly transitioned to a beautifully sunny day as everyone arrived at noon to make wreaths at the showroom. We started by learning how to roll steel—and how to make steel frames for just about any form you want to create. Then we moved into the floral world and selected foliage to style our steel rings with a bounty of everything from eucalyptus to rosemary and juniper. While we worked, we sipped warm apple cider and whiskey, which undoubtedly helped the creativity flow. We had a spread of cheeses, fruit, and smoked sausage and chicken straight off the smoker. Spiced cider, smoked meats, aromatic foliage: It smelled really good in there. Such a perfect day surrounded by a group of talented and funny women.
