This past weekend wrapped up Floral Arranging 101. For the final assignment, we had to create a bridal bouquet. I was in Encinitas, San Diego for the holiday weekend and spent about an hour driving around to all the local floral stands hunting for flowers. I was able to find some beautiful antique roses, lisianthus, mums, dahlias and a pretty herbal, vine-like flower ( the name escapes me). Because I was away from my tools, I was unable to finish off the stems with ribbon but I made do with the resources I had. Overall, I absolutely loved this class and plan to keep up my practice. Few things bring me as much happiness as flowers and I’m so excited to have a foundation for arranging.
