Participants in a Spring Design Class proudly toted vibrant green succulent arrangements home recently.
The class was held at The Williams Company Store in Ottertail and presented by Marnie Whitehead.
Whitehead, proprietor of The Williams Company Store, learned floral design from an aunt while in high school and continued at Flower City in Bloomington when attending college. She specializes in Christmas trees and custom arrangements and has created designs for Fergus Falls Tour of Homes.
Class members learned about local wild flowers and plants suitable for arrangements, as well as seasonable selections found in the woods, along roads and ponds.
Whitehead made bow-making look manageable with a pinch here and there, looping ribbon in varying lengths and the twist of a wire.
