We had such a fun time at Element 112 for our Blooms and Brews Thanksgiving Centerpiece design class on November 20th. The ladies did a wonderful job designing their centerpiece in a wood box!

We began our Thanksgiving Centerpieces by adding pittosporum, a beautiful greenery to cover our floral foam and create and elongated centerpiece.

After we added greenery to the base of our arrangement, to cover our oasis, we added sunflowers.

The view from the other end of the table. Everyone added their orange carnations after their sunflowers.

Then we learned how to wire silk leaves and add them to fill in our holes.

Adding mums to tie everything together and fill in the last of our holes.

Everyone did such a great job and everyone had a great time. Of course, our burgers were delicious from Element 112 and Bubbles was the hit drink of the night! If you haven’t tried it, we definitely recommend it. Tastes more like champagne than beer!

If you’re interested in a centerpiece class, we already have our holiday centerpiece class planned. It is the same format as the one above, but a holiday centerpiece with winter greenery. For more info or to sign up, click here.

We also had a Turkey Succulent Kid’s Class the day before Thanksgiving at Beautiful Blooms by Jen. We remembered to take a few pictures and they turned out so cute!

The first step was to add the feathers to the terra cotta pots.

After designing the turkey’s face, the kids planted a succulent inside.

These girls were so creative!

We have many other kid’s classes coming up in December. We have our free Red Bird Painting class during the Red Bird Art Walk from 5-7pm on December 7th. Please register here so we have enough supplies.

There are also two classes on December 15th. These also need to be pre-registered for. Kids can come to the store between 9-11am and design 2 reindeer pinecones for $5 or a red mason jar centerpiece for $15. These are perfect gifts for parents, teachers and grandparents!

I can’t believe this gorgeous wedding never was blogged about! I loved the colors because they were so vibrant and fun. They were fall with a twist!  Orange, burgundy, lime green and purple. They just popped! Andrea came in with the picture of a tall centerpiece she and her mom loved and we worked really hard to make them perfect for her. The cascade bridal bouquet was the other WOW!

We’re so excited to see the professional photos from JP Photography because as you can see from the few included here, hers are so much better than ours! Plus, don’t you think the couple looks like they should be models?!
