{arranged} photos!

I can’t begin to tell you how lucky I am that not one, but TWO unbelievably fabulous photographers attended our workshop. Jessica Claire (who is already my new friend) and Jasmine Star (who I might force to be my friend because she’s just so cool) were kind enough to bring along their camera and take some lovely photos while they weren’t slaving over their arrangement. Special thanks to both of them for attending AND for taking these beautiful shots!

DIY Workshop


Our DIY workshop (which I’m now officially calling {arranged}) was totally successful. We had a spectacular time coaxing our flowers into obedience. I am extremely grateful to all of our participants and helpers! Photographs are coming soon, but I just had to jump the gun on our announcement!

The event was such a success, I’ve already set a new date for our next one: Sunday, May 31 from 3-5 pm. The location is TBD, but will be in the Orange County area. If you know now that you want to go, I’m offering an early bird special–a 15% discount–for the next two weeks only. Click here to purchase a reservation.

Event Announcement: DIY Workshop {edition one}


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.
