We had a blast last night playing with flowers in the studio in the first of our floral design classes in quite awhile! I had a great group of “new florists” onboard for an evening of basic floral design. How to arrange in vase, using floral foam, strapping vases, leaf wrapping and basic forms and shapes. They were stellar, quick learners, and funny to boot! Check out their creations…from start to finish in one and a half hours!

Her photographer Cosmin Foto created a gorgeous blog post of their day at Hatley Castle in Victoria BC.
What a stunning day that they had! [Read more…]
