I had such an amazing end to a wonderful weekend, and I can’t wait to share it with you all! I found an amazing gem of Dallas, fullosophie. Fullosophie is an amazing company that connects creatives with local business and sets up interesting, fun, and informational classes on any and all creative subjects. This weekend I was lucky enough to attend their Art of The Arrangement class, by The Southern Table, with my future mother in law. We learned SO much from the experts at The Southern Table, sipped champagne, made our own fabulous arrangements and left feeling brighter against this horrible winter weather! I thought I would share some tips and tricks and of course all of my pictures from the class! I can not wait to throw a dinner party just to create my own arrangement!
These were the amazing kits we found when we arrived at the class! Including all sorts of goodies, mini champagne bottle, new vase, and an adorable pair of floral clippers!
So this makes me official right? I am obsessed!
The gorgeous flowers we got to arrange with!
The pro herself, Maxine, teaching us and making an amazing arrangement! She is a wealth of knowledge, and so good at what she does. Being passionate about your work really comes through in the end! Her organic style of flower arranging is so much fun and so much about the flowers and creativity!
The GORGEOUS sign they had framed in their studio. I must tell you there is nothing like a creative space, I can not wait to have a studio of my own (one day people!)
Our arrangements and of course our champagne (it helps the creative process!)
My final arrangement! This picture (taken by my iPhone) really shows what good lighting can do for photography! I am obsessed with this arrangement, and the fun we had learning and creating! Here are some of my biggest take aways from the class:
-Using coated chicken wire (balled up in your vase) creates great stability and allows for the amazing organic waterfall kind of look.
-Use as much greenery as you can find! It will make any all arrangement look professional and full of depth
-Place your greenery first, then statement flowers (large blooms) and then fill with smaller blooms
-Always make a fresh (and diagonal) cut to your blooms while arranging
-Add fresh water every day to your arrangements
