Event Announcement: DIY Workshop {edition one}

workshopflyer

Many of you have expressed interest in a DIY Workshop for flowers–so much so, that I’ve decided to take the plunge. You, dear readers, are invited to join myself, my creative team, and other eager DIY-ers in demystifying floral design.

This is the perfect opportunity for those of you interested in learning how to put together a bouquet or arrangement for a wedding, shower, birthday, anniversary or any old plain Jane Tuesday.  

We’re aiming for a spring workshop, which is just in time if you’re considering designing your own flowers for a wedding or event this summer. I know budgets are tight right now as many brides (and hostesses alike) are looking for ways to cut costs. I’m hoping the knowledge, practice and confidence you’ll gain from this workshop will better prepare you for what’s to come, if you decide to do your own flowers.

The workshop is open to anyone–bride or not. Besides, there’s nothing like bright blooms, dirty hands and a little creativity to make your weekend that much brighter. I’m thinking champagne, puff pastries, and a big pile of peonies are the perfect ingredients for mixing, mingling, and mayhem. 

Dates, details and pricing are forthcoming, however the location will be in Orange County and we’re shooting for a Saturday in late March/early April. We’d like to know how many of you are interested, so please leave us a comment or send us an email if you are seriously interested in attending. Pricing will reflect floral materials and flowers and you’ll get to take a completed arrangement home with you. 

We look forward to hearing from you.

  3. Hey Summer,
    I’m Kim… I’ve met you before bc I’m friends w/ your sisters. I want to come to your workshop! I’m helping my best friend plan her wedding this summer and will be doing her flowers (I’ve done them for one wedding previously) and would like to get some tips from you. Your bouquets are beautiful!

    Awesome!!! I think this workshop will be perfect for you then. We’ll have a couple of different options for everyone. Generally speaking, we’ll have a minimal cost to attend the event, and then a price for an actual arrangement (just to cover the cost of flowers and supplies) which you’ll get to actually construct with us, step by step, and then take home after. We’ll also send you away with a how to guide with information about navigating the flower mart, treating flowers to make them last longer, picking the right flowers, etc….

  5. Hello! I found your blog through Travis Collins who leads worship at my church! I am getting married June 28 and we are doing our own flowers. I would love to go somewhere and learn how!
