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?

  3. 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.

  4. wow Chelsea looks so lovely…and you were sporting (one of) your nice striped tees! I would love to attend one of these beautiful classes one day…the pics look gorgeous! xo
