We had such a great time at our Blooms and Brews Floral Design class on Friday! We hosted our class at Element 112, during the First Friday Art Walk in Downtown Sylvania. The theme this month was Red, White and Brew and so we wanted to pair with Element so they could provide the burgers, beer and Beautiful Blooms by Jen provided the blooms!

We decided to teach how to design a “just picked” arrangement in a mason jar using many locally grown flowers so that our students would feel comfortable picking flowers out of their garden and filling their mason jar again.

The ladies arrived and we had cocktail hour from 5:30-6:30 where we ordered our burgers and beers and mingled.

These burgers were so good! Element 112 has a Tuesday night Burger and Beer special you definitely need to check out! Colleen and I recommend the Bubbles beer!

After we enjoyed our burgers, Colleen and I passed out the tools, mason jars, and buckets of flowers. We began our arrangements by adding greenery like a grid. Then we added our larger flowers and finished with our fun textures. It was so fun watching everyone design their arrangements and seeing how they all turned out.

Each bucket had the same flowers, but the sunflowers were either traditional yellow, or a new white sunflower that we just discovered in the last few weeks! With everyone receiving the same instruction, it is so fun to see everyone’s creativity shine through!

I was so honored to be chosen as the florist for Jessica and Ryan’s wedding. I have become friends with Jessica since she joined my BNI last year.  I knew her wedding was going to be absolutely amazing because she is the queen of estate sales and finding the perfect vintage items. There was not a single detail missed!

It took me forever to blog this wedding because I knew as a photographer, the photographer she chose was going to be fabulous! Check out these gorgeous pictures!
