Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you're all enjoying the summer as much as we are here in the shoppe. I wanted to share some pictures from a very special floral arranging class Emily and I had the pleasure of teaching at Millennium Place. The Boston luxury residences invited us to instruct a small group of women on the basics of arranging cut flowers. During the class, each participant created her own hand-tied bouquet first and then had the option to arrange the flowers in a vase. To begin, we had the participants choose their own stems from a a selection of flower varieties, For this class we had picked out a beautiful pastel palette which included cream double petaled tulips, green immature hydrangea, white lisianthus, pink calla lilies and green hypericum.
We had a blast working with the ladies and the arrangements were all simply lovely
Emily noted how unique each piece was saying, "It was exciting to see how differently the ladies put together the same floral ingredients"
Participants learned to angle the stems for a hand-tied bouquet
We hope everyone had as much fun as we did and we can't wait to do it again!
