Create a centerpiece arrangement for autumn!


Wed, October 11, 2023 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm




Gorton Center
400 East Illinois Road Lake Forest, IL 60045

Join us as we roll up our sleeves and create a mixed plant design you can enjoy for the months to come. We will use orchids, trailing foliage, succulents, air plants, moss, and dried seasonal components to fill a container of your choosing.

  • Bring gardening gloves
  • Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little dirty
  • Bring the container you’ll use for your arrangement
    (suggested size 8″ – 12″ wide x 6 ” deep)

All other supplies and plants will be provided. Complimentary beverage provided (includes wine, sparkling water, beer & soda).

Alisa will not only show you how to fill your container with easy-to-care-for plants but also show you some of her favorite products and tools to make caring for your creation a breeze in the weeks ahead.

You will leave with a gorgeous arrangement to display in your home, skills to create more designs in the future, and the confidence to step outside of the box with new tools in your toolbox!

About the Instructor: With a 20-year background in custom event décor and floral design (previously The Flower Firm, Four Finches, Epic Events, and Ivan Carlson, now Pasquesi Home and Gardens,) Alisa has been drawn to plants since childhood.  Raised by avid home gardeners, she has always made sure to seed save, encouraging others to appreciate flowers and plants in their homes and surroundings. Her enthusiasm and breadth of knowledge will help encourage you to create your own design masterpiece for your Autumnal Inspired Centerpiece for your home!
