Hands On Design Classes at the Store

The holidays are such a festive time here at the shop and the fun will continue with some "DIY" classes here at the Princeton Shop. After such success with our Terrarium Making Class and our Wreath Making Class, our next class will be held on November 29th from 6:30 - 8:00 and we'll be teaching you how to make a Box Wood Tree for the holidays. This class not only shows you step by step but you'll be making your very own Tree to bring home with you! This class is $60 per student and the price includes wine and snacks.



Our next class will be held on December 12 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm and we'll be teaching you how to make a Christmas Centerpiece. Again, you'll not only learn but make your own design to take home for the holidays. Wine and snacks will be served and the price is $55 per student.
Lastly, we have scheduled a new class that should be a fun girls night our event. At this class, you will learn all the different ways to tie a scarf. Scarves are super popular right now and a wonderful way to person your wardrobe for the winter. The cost is only $20 per student that includes wine and snacks.

How to Make a Flower Puppy

It's amazing what you can do with 12 carnations and a little bit of creativity. Our Floral Designer Rocio loves making puppy arrangements so here she shares her tips with you!

This will become his little bed!  Be sure to fill in along the back. Reme…
