Elm Grove, Wis. – Ready to prepare your home for fall and, ultimately, the holidays? The floral experts from Snapdragon Flowers of Elm Grove will provide demonstrations and advice for seasonal décor Wednesday at a free event at Autumn Grove Plaza, 129th & Bluemound Road.
Snapdragon Flowers is among several local businesses participating in the Neighborhood Night Out from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Owners Denise Barnett and Rhonda Deaver will give hands-on seminars at 4:30 and 6 about using well-known flowers to create gift arrangements for party hosts, weddings, holiday presents or extending well wishes.
“We’re going to offer new twists on using a common, everyday flower to make lively, eye-catching seasonal arrangements,” Barnett said. “Everyone loves getting flowers, so we want to demonstrate how arrangements don’t have to be exotic to be exciting and beautiful. Flowers are like any other form of art – the possibilities are limited only by imagination and exploration.”
One lucky person will win a “Holiday Home Décor Makeover” from Snapdragon Flowers by entering at its booth. Gift certificates from the floral shop can be won in a larger raffle open to all event attendees.
The Snapdragon Flowers exhibit will offer plenty of ideas for using flowers and plants to decorate homes for entertaining and the holidays. Seasonal arrangements for weddings and gifts will on display.
“Entering the fall and winter months, flowers and plants become even more important in people’s lives,” Barnett said. “As the weather gets colder and often keeps us indoors, the color and life provided by these offerings of nature brightens spirits and livens up our surroundings. We look forward to sharing ideas for how people can use flowers and plants to make the upcoming seasons more enjoyable for their loved ones.”
At least 10 businesses will have displays and free offerings at the Neighborhood Night Out. Other demonstrations and activities include wine tasting, a mini-fitness boot camp, chair massages and food samples. Additional raffle prizes are massage gift cards, personal training sessions, yoga packages, hair makeovers and more.
Located in the heart of downtown Elm Grove, Snapdragon Flowers provides fresh, beautiful flowers and plants for people, events and occasions throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Its unique, innovative arrangements and designs are destined to bring smiles when desired, and comfort when needed.
