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.
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.
More photos over on Flickr. Didn't they do a great job?
Photos: Chelsea Fuss. Thanks to my friend Alisa for assisting me that day.
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! 🙂
Fuuuun! I hope we can play flowers together someday 🙂
what beautiful photos! this looks like it was so much fun. great job, chelsea!
gorgeous, chelsea!! what a pretty selection of flowers! looks like a lot of fun.
I am so jealous! This looks like so much fun 🙂
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?
Give them a fresh cut with a clean pair of flower clippers. Place in lukewarm water. If they wilt, submerge them in very hot water.
OH MY GOODNESS this is so dreamy and beautiful and perfect. Come do a class in Toronto!
So, so beautiful!! I want you to come (move) to Toronto!
