Saturday Morning Flower Arranging Party!

003chelseaapril14

On Saturday morning, I had a little flower arranging party at my house. I partnered with Fifty Flowers and ordered a gorgeous box of ranunculus! They also sent along the sweetest box of white spring flowers. I added in a selection of local stems as well, invited a few friends over and we made bouquets while we munched on radishes, bread, and cheese and enjoyed the prettiest, sunny morning in the garden.

We made hand-tied bouquets which you can see the instructions for right here.

We had ranunculus, hyacinth, anemone, larkspur, buplerum, daffodils, dusty miller, myrtle, and queen anne’s lace.

Waxflower always adds a nice wild flavor to arrangements.

It’s so fun to see what combination each person comes up with!

  1. It really was a lovely class and a perfect way to start the weekend. I was glad I could attend. I gave the bouquet from the class as a surprise gift to my mother and she absolutely loved them. Thank you, Chelsea.

  2. This looks like so much fun!!! What a perfect weekend and those flowers are simply amazing. I wish I would have been available to come make bouquets with you ladies! xo

  3. Hi Chelsea,

    I tried to follow the link to learn how to make french hand-tied arrangements, but the link is no longer available. Since I’m in Eugene, it’s unlikely that I might make it up for another class in your backyard, but if the link is broken I might have to pursuade Linda M. to drive up (like she and Steve don’t get up there to see the family very often hehehe) so we can both attend (!).
