Holiday Workshop Centerpiece

In December, I hosted a floral design workshop for Milwaukee Art Museum Garden Club members.  We created a holiday themed centerpiece using fresh roses and holly plus some foraged items from my garden.  I preserved Limelight hydrangea blooms with a water/glycerin mixture and then spray painted them with a burgundy wine color.  The pine cones are lightly painted copper and gold.  Other items in this piece are lotus pods, grapevine balls, and small colored ornaments.
