Ms Wakefield said: “Flower arrangement is part of my DNA. I grew up surrounded by a family who opened my eyes to beauty and arranged flowers effortlessly. My mom taught me how to make “kiss balls” and my dad helped me pick mistletoe on the banks of the Tennessee River. My mind is completely consumed to know more about flowers and how to compose them with art. It is such a joy to create with flowers, branches and green vegetables. The lush foliage of the Tennessee mountains where I live is an endless source of inspiration for my flower arrangements.

“I will be sharing how to plan a design and how to put the pieces together for a beautiful floral creation, as well as answer any questions about the art of floral design. I hope to inspire you to create your own unique arrangements – just in time. for the holidays.”
