One of my very favorite things about my career is the people I get to meet. I can’t believe how many incredibly talented, kind, strong people there are out there that flowers have brought me to. I have met many of these people through teaching. Last Spring I had the most wonderful group of women in one of my Spring intensive workshops where we worked on designing, and discussed the business side of things.
I had such a good time with this group!
It is so beautiful to watch someone create something that is an expression of themselves. You can see it, each arrangement is in some way a reflection of the person who made it. It is so fun to work with the same people for a few days and see their style really show through every arrangement they make. I love watching people light up with they work with flowers.
In this class we used spring blooms and citrus on the branch to create these large arrangement that explored the use of complimentary colors. Our centerpiece arrangements and bouquets used a softer palette of whites, lavenders, and muddy greens. I love when all of these tiny blooms are available in the Spring, and we used them all.
As a group, we covered a three arch arbor with blooming acacia and forsythia. I love working on these bigger pieces together. We didn’t have Heather for this part of the day, so you’ll have to make do with these grainy photos I took as the sun was setting. This day was so joyful. Thank you to each of the attendees, I truly loved getting to know you, and seeing the beauty that you create.
