The Wedding Décor Workshop is a three-hour workshop for brides-to-be and their wedding parties to make their own wedding décor. Activities include learning calligraphy for wedding invitations, signs, and place cards, as well as creating paper flower decorations for the venue. Instructor Melissa Gartz will also give a demonstration for making handmade card boxes.
