Make May Day Posies at the New England Botanic Garden

April 29, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

May Day Posies

Enjoy the ancient tradition of observing May Day with flowers. Learn how to make flower posies and how to grow your own unusual spring flowers on April 29. Each participant will make three flower posies (without floral foam) to bring home and secretly gift to your friends or neighbors.

Please bring floral scissors/clippers to class.

Instructor: Mary Beth Hayes

Mary Beth is an avid gardener and floral designer who began studying floral design so she could bring the beauty of the garden into her home. She has taken classes with the Mass Horticultural Society and Cass School of Floral Design in Watertown. She has studied with noted floral designers Francoise Weeks, Holly Chapple, and Hitomi Gilliam. Mary Beth loves to share the techniques she’s learned with others so we can all “play with flowers” and create beautiful, natural flower arrangements and more.
