While we love the endless sources of DIY’s and tutorials on Instagram, Pinterest, and beyond, some projects truly require a hands-on learning experience in order to achieve a professional look. Floral design and table styling are at the top of that list! Luckily, the talented ladies at Daisy Rose Floral Design and Hawthorn Flower Studio have teamed up to create a comprehensive floral workshop experience in the heart of wine country, filled with flowers, seasonal fruit, wine, and delicious food, hosted by the wonderfully modern and upscale Hamel Family Wines. Your Memorial Day weekend just got an upgrade!
At the Rose & Thorn Workshop you’ll spend a gorgeous Saturday enjoying Hamel Family Wines’ organic rosé and charcuterie while immersing yourself in the arts of floral design and table styling, all with the help of seasoned industry professionals. No need to worry about bringing your own supplies – flowers, vases, tools, and photographs will be provided for you! If you’ve always wanted to learn how to create your favorite lush, garden-style centerpieces, you don’t want to miss it!
After learning the tips and tricks to achieving those dreamy, overflowing shapes we all love, you’ll hone your table styling skills to really give your creations a masterful look! The Rose and Thorn Workshop even covers vase selection, sourcing seasonal materials, and sustainable flower care – everything you need to know in order to craft perfect floral designs! While this is clearly an Instagram-worthy experience, photographer Megan Clouse will be on-site to document the day and each student’s beautiful work.
If you’re thinking you’ll want to celebrate your new expertise with more local wine and a hearty meal, the all-inclusive experience is exactly what you’re looking for. After the workshop portion of the day, you’ll wind down with an organic, farm-to-table picnic lunch prepared by Bouchon-trained executive chef Clinton Huntsman, along with a thoughtfully curated wine tasting presented by a Hamel Family wine ambassador. Top it all off with a caves tour and you’ve had an incredibly unique wine country workshop experience!

That’s one of the reasons I would love to join this workshop! but I do know that I love dahlias. They have this amazing geometry, richness of color–they’re just so striking!” We can’t wait to see what you dream up!
