DIY Floral Design Class – Summer Mason Jar Centerpiece


Intro to Floral Design: Summer Mason Jar

August 19, 2017 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm


As summer winds down into autumn, come learn what to do with those flower bunches you’ve been buying at the farmers markets, florists, and grocery stores (or picking from your own garden!) to make them  look lovely. We’ll show you all the tips and tricks on how to keep flowers fresh in any type of container while creating a wonderful trendy design and skills that you can use to re-create your Summer Mason Jar design at home, and into other seasons.

We provide the knowledge on how to recognize the freshest flowers, how to care for flowers to make them last longer, and basic design skills on how to create a beautiful flower arrangement. You will then create a bouquet to take home, using our tools and guided by our step-by-step instructions. No experience necessary.

BYOF!!! Bring Your Own Flowers!  Please bring a bunch of about 20 flower stems, or about 9-12″ across.  Or, pay a $15 materials fee and we will bring your flowers for you. You will also need a mason jar.
