15 Minute Arrangements for Summer Entertaining

Registration Req. Barb Ottolino, The Cultivated Choice demonstrates quick and easy, yet stunningly inexpensive arrangements for summer celebrations.

Several lucky attendees will leave with arrangements, but everyone gets Barb’s list of resources and quick reference sheets.
