One of our prettiest workshops yet, The Valentine Floral Arranging Workshop took place on Sunday, February 12. Just in time to celebrate the holiday! Our studio was flooded with flowers as Alexis of Alexis Grace Florals and the CT team prepared for our guests to get creative with their table-top arrangements.
Our guests checked in and grabbed some delicious food from the croissant bar we had set up. Nutella, strawberries, and La Croix were all crowd pleasers. Ashley of Modern Aquarian provided us with the perfect sign for the Valentine’s themed spread.
We got everyone settled in and introduced Alexis, who began the tutorial. Her table was adorned with flowers as well as a hand lettered mirror decorated with one of her favorite quotes, “I must have flowers, always, and always - Claude Monet”, custom made by Modern Aquarian Lettering. The mirror was one of of most-photographed items of the day!
Alexis then went over the basics for flower arranging, teaching our guests how to trim their blooms, arrange greenery, and add in special flowers. Every table was smiling and chatting as their hands were busy working on their creations. Alexis walked throughout the studio, giving guests tips or extra help as needed.
Soon, the arrangements were finished! Each guest’s was unique to them, showing off their individual personality and creativity. After putting the final touches on our creations, it was time to snap some photos of our guests with their wonderful creations! Robyn of Hayseed Charm captured the guest’s arrangements in front of our latest wall install.
We snacked and laughed while getting to know each other a bit more, then everyone went home with a beautiful handmade arrangement to give their table at home a bit of Valentine love.
