Come and spend a relaxing couple of hours learning how to create a hand tied bouquet using seasonal blooms at My Flower Cart's flower farm. 

 

This workshop will teach you how to create a bouquet using the spiral method. This is a great way to make a bouquet and you can simply place it in a vase to make a beautiful arrangement in your home. I will spend a bit of time demonstrating this technique and will also discuss how I choose flowers for a bouquet and what to use to elevate your bouquet to the next level. I'll also discuss how to properly condition your flowers before you begin creating in order to extend their vase life. We will use seasonal blooms and interesting seed pods and textural botanicals which really add interest and whimsy to a design. Morning tea will be provided.
