With the holidays just around the corner, you will decking the halls before you know it. Add a little seasonal cheer to your home with traditional holiday flowers! Join local flower show judge and floral design expert Emily Bader as she demonstrates how to create four easy designs at home for Thanksgiving and transform them into new arrangements just in time for the December holidays.

These traditional holiday flowers will instantly warm up your cozy home or serve as a thoughtful gift for a loved one. For instance, a traditional cornucopia filled with roses is elegant and easy to put together, making it the perfect decoration for your Thanksgiving table or to give to a friend. You‘ll also learn about Pot-et-Fleur flower arrangements and how to modify them in various ways for a longer lasting design.
