In late August we hosted two sold-out floral design workshops! They were SO much flower-filled fun!
Saturday night we filled the design studio with fellow flower lovers
and new friends.
Over a glass of bubbly and yummy appetizers we learned the ins and outs of color play.
A new, larger gate leading to the cutting gardens and greenhouse allowed us to bring the flower cart out back for the event.
A small improvement long-coming. The flower cart will now be able to make an appearance at all future workshops, parties, and private events!
The weather was perfection!
The cart was absolutely over-flowing with seasonal blooms!
Our cutting garden is definitely a May/August garden so the blooms were popping -- our participants did not have to be asked twice to stroll the gardens, clippers in hand, looking for inspiration and ingredients for their arrangements.
I firmly believe that flowers are, by nature, beautiful.
Designs should, therefore, not be too constrained by rules but should be done freely and provide a reflection of the unique individual doing the designing! I loved seeing all of the unexpected and stunning designs participants created.
I cannot wait to do this all over again in October! What could be better than a summer garden full of flowers? Pumpkins and flowers! Join us October 5th and 6th for our Fall Floral Design Workshop - the summer workshops sold out and we are already at about half-full for our Fall workshops so get your tickets today!
Petals is incredibly excited to announce our newest team member:
Tina of The Little Peach Bake Shop
For this workshop she made the most AMAZING cinnamon and Italian buttercream cake embellished with real flowers and 24k gold foil!
We cannot wait to see what she comes up with for the October Workshop; we're hoping for something with pumpkin!
