Apryl and I have been thinking about other ways beyond weddings and special events to bring beautiful flowers to people.  Since we’re a  design studio rather than a store, we don’t sell weekly bouquets to people – but we still understand the importance of having fresh flowers around on a daily basis, not just for the big events like weddings, birthdays and showers.

So, a few months ago we came up with the idea of offering floral design classes! Here are few photos from our first one:

Above is the arrangement Apryl designed for the class and taught everyone to do. It is filled with spring tulips, peachy-pink stock, and interesting foliage – it’s a fun exuberant arrangement of the season.

The class was held at a host’s home for her friends as a fun get together. We bring everything – the containers, flowers, and tools – and then show everyone how to arrange a bouquet (which they then get to take home and enjoy of course!). It’s a fun thing to do for any reason, but I think it would be really perfect for a wedding shower or birthday celebration!
