Parksville Event: Winter Wreath Workshop


The Truffle Farm proudly sources a bounty of natural materials to incorporate into unique floral designs.

Your winter wreath base will be built using fresh locally harvested greenery. Choose from fragrant olive branches, coastal cedar boughs, sugar pine fronds, laurel leaves, boxwood cuttings, and wispy Sequoia weeping eucalyptus.

Then embellish your one-of-a-kind creation by selecting from pinecones, designer ribbons, wild berries, dried orange slices, cinnamon sticks and more. With so many gorgeous options, you can perfectly match your wreath to your personal style and home d├ęcor.

The variety of textures, shapes and scents provided will inspire you to make a statement piece that impresses. Let the nature-inspired materials ignite your creativity as you craft a custom wreath under Virginia’s guidance.

Even if you have never arranged a art decoration before, you can create a stunning wreath under Virginia’s helpful instruction.

What We Will Experience:

To start, Virginia will demonstrate essential techniques for achieving a full, balanced wreath base using the fresh greenery. Follow along as she attaches pieces at just the right angles and spacing. Virginia will share professional tips for working efficiently while building a sturdy foundation.

Once your wreath form is established, Virginia will step back from her sample and provide guidance as you construct your own. She will offer suggestions for arrangement placement and check on your progress. You will gain hands-on experience with floral design fundamentals thanks to Virginia’s clear step-by-step approach.

With Virginia’s watchful eye, you can create a wreath base with gorgeous texture, shape and volume, ready for your creative touch.

The class starts out explaining how to get started to wrap your wreath base so it full of greenery. I will have a completed version for display, and I will start one with you so you can follow along. I will then step away from my design and assist the class on building theirs.

We would be designing your one-of-a-kind Winter Wreath with a variety of fresh harvested greenery of Olive, Cedar, Sugar pine, laurel, boxwood, Sequioa weeping eucalyptus. You will have a variety of selection at your fingertips such as Pinecones, designer Ribbons, berries, cinnamon sticks dried oranges to make it your special style.

Your wreath will be perfect on your front door on inside of your entry to greet your winter guests. In our class we will be designing the structural base and I will explain the differences to achieve the look you have always wanted.

Once our base is completed, we will take a break to enjoy wholesome farm raised food and truffles while we sip on cider, wine or have a cup of mint lavender tea. Time to relax and admire your hard work and mingle.

After our break will be time to choose your unique choice of flowers and finishing touches such as ribbons, cones, berries and to introduce your colors and style. I will be there to make suggestions and answer questions. I can ensure you will leave your class with the floral design of your dreams and the skills from your design class to be able to repeat this in the future.

Together, we will have an unforgettable experience which will fast track you into the Winter Spirit!
