The Dutch, French, English and other Europeans as well as the Japanese and Chinese have practiced this “Art” for thousands of years.  Today, seasonal floral arranging is a very popular and creative ‘artistic’ endeavor. Original, seasonal embellishments for the home are one of Nina’s true passions.  Come meet Nina and learn first-hand her unique techniques  for the fall season. You might even go home with one!  Flyer.
