We had such a blast at our Beautiful Blooms by Jen Christmas Centerpiece Class tonight at Element 112! This class was a Blooms and Brews class which included a burger, a beer and a holiday centerpiece. We had 26 people sign up and it was a full house!

We started out by filling in with an assortment of winter greenery that included cedar, fir and boxwood. Then we added in gorgeous holiday ribbon, red roses and pinecones. Everyone had their own artistic flair and we love how everyone’s turns out a little bit different.

Future Florist, Madeline, joined us today to help pass out flowers. She is my manager, Colleen’s, daughter. I think her favorite part was carrying around our sample centerpiece for everyone to see.

After we made our gorgeous arrangements, we enjoyed a gourmet hamburger from Element 112. If you haven’t tried one yet, they are the special on Tuesday night!

My husband’s Grandma came with my husband’s cousin, Cory. It was so fun that they joined us! What a fun experience with your Grandma!

Jen’s mom came to her first design class with some of her neighbor friends!

Thank you so much to everyone who attended tonight! Many of you were class repeaters and for some, this was their second class of the season! We also loved hearing that some of you have made our class a Christmas tradition and we love that your groups are growing!
