Floral Arranging

Yesterday I decided I want to take a floral arrangement course. I don’t know why this didn’t occur to me sooner.

I love table setting and flowers are a pretty standard centerpiece.

I usually go with simple flowers in mason jars, milk glass and the like.

So simple and pretty, I feel like anyone can do this.

Why take a class? Am I missing something?

Uh, well, my floral arrangements never look like the photos below, so yeah, I am missing something. A lot of somethings, I’d say.

It’s time to step it up and take a course.

Sign me up.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

    Ohhh what a great idea! I need to do the same, or at least ask my florists some tips and tricks!

    Have a great St Pattys day lover!

  2. I can’t wait until you send me a bouquet of your signature design!

    Floral arranging is just fun anyways…I’ve done a couple of mini classes on it and it’s always a blast! I’ve been really in to that mixing of big flowers with the succulents…it’s such a neat-o combo…

    P.S. I was laughing about your hubbs’ comment on your first place…he won’t make that mistake again (c:

    Good for you! I’ve never taken a course either. But it would be one of those skills that you’d use your entire life. Why not.

    That is such a good idea. I always try to set my table really cute and it NEVER looks how the wonderful styled tables in the glossies look. Id totes go with you!

    Oh how fun!!!!! Be sure to share your tips. I just had a day dream in which you become a rockstar floral designer. designstILes: floral and interiors. How cool would that be??

    After you arrange flowers, maybe you can glaze a bowl at Color Me Mine 😉 I kid, I kid!! I would totally join you in that course!

    I’ve always wanted to take a floral arrangement class! I wish we lived closer!

    I’m horrible with flowers and always end up screwing up my arrangements some how. What a skill to have though, and completely worth the time and effort of taking a class. Go for it!
