The WellStar Medical Facility in Marietta was busier than Santa’s workshop when Carithers Flowers recently hosted a floral design seminar for board members of the Atlanta WellStar Foundation. Participants flitted about the classroom like busy little elves on Christmas Eve creating an assortment of beautiful holiday floral centerpieces.

Carithers floral designers worked with participants to help them learn the elements and principles of flower arranging while working with a bountiful array of fresh flowers, foliage, evergreens, fruit, and candles to create elegant and artfully designed holiday centerpieces.

Members of the class were also provided helpful tips on how to keep their arrangements fresh throughout the holiday season.

Check out some of the gorgeous holiday centerpieces created by WellStar board members on YouTube.
