Yesterday was such a treat! I got to go to a floral arranging class offered by Shawn at The Floral Studio! It was Mia's birthday so as her gift, I took her along. We spent the afternoon visiting with the other class members and each other, snacking on grapes and cookies, and making these seriously beautiful centerpieces. Shawn and Debbie were so patient with us as almost everyone in class was a complete novice. We learned techniques for cleaning and prepping the flowers all the way to the finishing touches to make our arrangements perfect. It was a really great way to spend a winter day and it got me really feeling inspired about spring and all the upcoming weddings we're working on here at Chellé Paperie. The Floral Studio is going to start offering the classes for sign up once their new site goes live, but Mia and I were discussing how fun it would be to email Shawn and just get together a bunch of your girlfriends or bridesmaids and have a private class. If you love flowers, I can't recommend her classes enough!
