Susan + Her Bridesmaids | Bouquet Workshop

I love those unexpected, a bit out-of-the-box inquiries that hit my email inbox every now and then. The biggest smile spread across my face when I read Susan's inquiry. She was a destination bride looking for a fun way to spend time with her bridesmaids before her wedding day. With a budding passion for floral design and a desire to learn, Susan was looking for someone to teach her wedding party how to make their own bridesmaid bouquets that would be used the following day in her wedding.

I LOVED the idea and had the best time teaching a room full of girls about something I love. We talked about each flower I had selected for their bouquets and why they were important players in the finished product. I told them about each flower's personality, how to prepare each stem, and we talked about the seasons.

We dove into construction and each step that goes into a bouquet's design. We talked about mechanics and tools, and finished each one with different widths and shades of ribbon.

I'm so thankful for the creative community that exists in my area, and for the relationships I have with so many different wedding vendors. I wouldn't have met Susan if it wasn't for her wonderful photographer, Oona of Dragonfly Photography, sending her my way. You can see her perspective (which made me laugh right out loud and get a little weepy) over on her blog

Workshops are such a great way to spend quality time with your friends, form new memories, and learn a new bundle of skills. We love hosting private workshops and we are happy to customize based on a client's needs. Let's create something together!
