Learn how to create your own flower arrangement with a local expert

DOVER – On Wednesday 24 March, the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce will present its March program Local Expert Series – a virtual tutorial on how to create floral arrangements from local florist Sweet Meadows Flower & Gift Shop. The tutorial will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

This virtual tutorial is part of the 10-part Local Expert Series sponsored by Ourea Solutions. Usually a series of three sessions focused on professional development, the 2021 Local Expert Series will spotlight local entrepreneurs while providing hands-on learning in many of the sessions.

For the flower arrangement session, there are two ways to participate: virtually during the scheduled time of the show, or register for the event to receive the recording to watch at another time.

Materials for making the arrangements at home can be purchased from Sweet Meadows ($40 per kit) or you can provide your own materials. The equipment list and registration can be found at dovernh.org/LES.

When defining a theme for this year’s series, Melissa Launder, GDCC Membership and Business Programs Manager, said, “We wanted to put together a program that wouldn’t feel like a webinar. We decided to create an opportunity for small businesses to share what they love about their work and show what the business is doing now. We thought it would be fun and informative to provide a behind-the-scenes look at the business. »
