Christmas Centrepiece Workshop
December 11
6:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Lougheed House
707 13 Ave SW (see map)
Calgary, Alberta

Have one of the world’s great floral designers help you create your own fresh and gorgeous holiday centerpiece (like the one in the photo)!

This festive hands-on workshop will be led by award-winning floral engineer Lea Romanowski, who will have you make a fantastic centerpiece from scratch. Lea will have on hand Alberta’s best selection of fresh greens, branches and accessories so you can bring home a spectacular addition to your table and have bragging rights for a full year!

We supply all materials, but we encourage you to bring your own garden pruners, ribbon scissors or florist knives. You are also welcome to bring personal touches or baubles from home. All of this, while being inspired by the thrilling Christmas décor designs throughout Lougheed House.

More About Lea:

Lea Romanowski is not a secret agent, but possesses all the resourcefulness and creative ideals that MacGyver was famous for. Floral artist and designer, Lea has always been a creative force continuously transforming the ordinary into extraordinary through design. In 1999, Lea founded Designing on the Edge, which has since become a recognized brand, if you will, within the industry, and offers a full range of services including structural floral art and major event design and decor.

Her extensive skill set of carpentry, painting, metal work, electrical, and sharp design sense inspired Lea’s nickname of MacGyver. Lea is the “fixer” of all things visual, guided by the principle that no task is impossible, you just might need to build the solution…literally!

For the past ten years Lea has been an instructor for the Floral Design Program at The Mount Royal University. As a pioneer of floral design, Lea offers her students knowledge and guidance on the importance of executing an idea flawlessly. Lea states, “I feel revitalized when I am teaching, inspiring future floral designers is rewarding and refreshing.”

Every Christmas season, Lougheed House is custom-decorated differently by Calgary’s professional interior designers who volunteer their skill and vision on our behalf. With Christmas trees, ornaments, lights, furniture, candles and decorative items throughout, Lougheed House at Christmas is a popular seasonal attraction for Calgary families.

This year’s theme of “Treats and Traditions” has been artfully designed by Calgary interior designers Selina Austin, Ana Cummings, Rebekah McEwan, Swantje Macke-Monteiro, Lea Romanowski and Alison Rose.
