Just in time for  May Day, we held our first, Frolic! Flower Class on Saturday. We had a great group of girls and were lucky to be hosted by the amazing Bernadette Breu.

Flower class 2

Our flower selection included : three varieties of lilac, hyacinth, muscari, sweet pea, anemone, ranunculus, freesia, myrtle and bruneria.

We munched on homemade  rhubarb+ raspberry galettes (thanks mom!).

We made hand-tied bouquets and wrapped them up pretty in water tight, aqua pack wrappings. The girls did such a grand job with their bouquets.

  1. looks like so much fun! i know this has nothing to do with your flower class, but can i please get your mom’s recipe for those rhubarb+ raspberry galettes, they look so amazing! 🙂

  2. I so wish I lived near you! I’d love to take a class! How do you get the lilacs to stay fresh in the bouquets? I have tried pounding the woody stems after I cut them, but that doesn’t seem to work either. Do you have a trick you’d share?
